  1. I worked many years with Mabel at T.J.,learned many good things from her. Mabel was a very efficient nurse,she put 110% in her work. She taught me many important aspects of nursing and she showed her love for nursing. I will remember the good times we had and worked hard while we enjoyed it. Cody reminds me a lot of Mabel cause she was a kind, heartfelt person for their sickness. She always listened to their troubles and needs. She was a quite lady but a true friend. I am very sorry for your loss but I know I have a special friend to meet someday in Heaven. Our prayers will go out in hopes that God will take care of you all and give you comfort.

  6. Bonnie, Brenda, Ruby and family,

    We are so sorry for the passing of your mother, grandmother and sister. Ms Mable will always hold a special place in our family’s heart. We have so many great memories of her dating back before my parents passed away and the friendship she shared with them both, LB growing up and her taking an active role with her at church, all the time she spent and the great work that she did in the church library when I was an assigned deacon, the church classes that I help teach and her knowledge and study of the Bible and just the visits at her house and church get togethers and up until last March the visits at Glenview. We loved Ms Mable and will always remember her as a special Christian lady that loved the Lord and her family above all. Continued much love, prayers and thoughts in the days to come.
