Obituary

Cynthia Lee DuPont, 67, formerly of Micanopy, passed away on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, after an extended illness. Born in Oneida, NY, on January 6, 1954 and spent her early childhood in Hubbardsville, NY. Cynthia moved to Pomona Park, FL with her parents in 1970 and completed high school at Crescent City High. She worked as a nationally certified Interpreter for the Deaf for many years, giving ears, a voice, and respect to countless members of the Deaf community. She moved to her home on Lake Wauburg in Micanopy, Florida in 1991, and loved to make memories there with all her friends and family. She hiked and camped in the Great Smokey Mountains, travelled Europe and Russia, lobbied the Florida Congress for Americans with Disabilities rights, helped establish a School for the Deaf in Qalqilya, Israel for Palestinian children, completed her Bachelor’s and double Master’s degrees, singlehandedly raised four children, and had a profound impact on all those who knew her.
She was predeceased by her parents, Gerald and Eleanor DuPont, brothers, Fred DuPont and John McPhearson, a sister, Marcella McMullen and her son, Christian Babcock II.
Surviving her are her children, Gerald Babcock, Christina Hamm, and Travis Babcock; her grandchildren who know her as their Nana, Amber Babcock, Caitlyn Babcock, Dylan Allen, Alexandra Babcock, Zachary Lowe, Keegan Babcock, Aaliyah Hamm, Carter Babcock, Emily Hamm, and Alexander Babcock; and her siblings, Terrance DuPont, Jeri Samu, Marion James, Esme Coward, Patsy Akins, and Pamela Walden.
Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at Johnson-Overturf Chapel in Palatka.

I went to school with Cyndy in High School. We were in several classes together, played several sports together, and we rode the same school bus. I am so sorry to learn she passed. She came back to Central NY for a class reunion a few years ago. I loved seeing her again and talking about our journeys. She was smart and funny and I'm glad I knew her. I'm so sorry for our loss of her. Ginny Keith

Nana,

You were more than my Nana. You were a shoulder to cry on, my biggest supporter, and someone that could make any bad day of mine turn into a good day because you always knew how to make me smile.

We have so many memories. From laughing to crying, but my favorite memory is talking for hours while we both ate a tootsie pop to see who could get to the center first.

I can’t help but cry Nana, but I promise I’ll try my best to be strong and make you proud every day. Give a big hug to Great Grandma for me.

Until we meet again my beautiful, intelligent, and strong Nana, I will continue to cherish every memory we shared and use the lessons you taught me. I miss you more than I can put into words. I love you with a hug around the neck. 💜

Your Granddaughter,
Alexandra
