NATCHEZ — Carmen M. Gavette, 68, of Natchez, passed away on December 26.

Carmen was born in Mexico City on July 22, 1954. She spent many years traveling throughout Mexico, South America, and Europe, among many other adventures. She was proficient in many languages. Carmen dedicated her life to helping those around her; she never met a stranger. From a young age, she had such a passion for social work. She began her career working as a federal officer for INS, then starting her own immigration business. Carmen and Morris moved from California to Natchez in 2007. In 2009 she began working at the Natchez Adams County Correctional Center. She had a love for her crafts, including woodworking, mosaics, knitting, and jewelry making and she also had a love for creative writing. Carmen was always the life of the party.
