Thanksgiving dinner was her favorite: turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and pumpkin pie. She loved to eat —the sweeter, the better. She enjoyed spending time with friends, playing bingo and skip-bo, and watching old TV shows. Mable loved to celebrate her birthday, opening presents at Christmas and handing out pencils to the neighborhood trick-and-treaters. She liked to attend church each Sunday when able.

Mable is survived by many friends and friends who became family.

Mable was preceded in death by her parents Ernest and Emily.

Thank you to all her friends her Crest friends who became her family and inspired her when she didn’t think she could be. She loved them all.
