Mabel was a friend and I will miss her! Her bright blue eyes and wide grin were shared with us every day and I am grateful I had the chance to know her. She was a resolute woman and determined in her pursuit of doing her very best. She was an intellectually brilliant woman and I admired her very much. She was excellent in debate and when she tried to be stern, those blue eyes would smile and then so would the rest of her face. Mabel made a mark in this world and she will be missed. My condolences to the family!
