Betty Babcock a supporter of the 1972 push to revamp Montana's constitution and wife of former Montana Gov. Tim Babcock, has died in Helena. Babcock died Sunday at 91. She also served as a Republican in the Montana House. The Montana Republican Party chairman confirmed her death in an e-mail. Babcock was one of 19 female delegates to the 1972 Montana Constitutional Convention. At that convention, the document was written to replace the 1889 version. Concerns over the older Constitution, including allowances for closed-door government meetings and fear it was insufficient to protect Montana's environment, led leaders such as Babcock to push for a revamp. She and Tim Babcock married in 1941.
