What memories I have of Mabel!!!!!!! She was always willing to host Kathys friends at her home. Generally, feeding us as well.
And BRAVE, driving us pre-teens anywhere in Marion, as we must have been a continual distraction with all our chatter.
She gave driving tips even before we were ever interested in driving ourselves....willing to miss her planned turn if a following vehicle was too close or too fast in her estimation. I remember her stating that she could always turn around and go back rather than be in a vehicle accident!
Kathy, Teresa and families; may you find comfort in all the precious memories she made with you. Prayers for all of you.

We loved Mabel as she brought much joy to us and mom at the nursing home. Her singing and stories she would tell. Once we are allowed back in we will miss her. Prayers for each of that God will give you strength and peace
