  4. so sorry to lose our beloved Mabel. She will always remain a treasure to have known her here in arizona.

  5. Our prayers, thoughts and tears are with you. She was a delight to know thru your e-mails. May God bless you for caring for her.

  6. Mabel…you were a Rockstar! I am so glad I had the chance to be your hairdresser these last few years! Your spunk, that cute little voice and that quick humor, will be surely missed. I loved all your holiday pics with all those fabulous hats and costumes! You did it right girl! I will miss you lots… kim

  7. We will miss Mama Mabel who loved to dress up for Halloween, eat breakfast at Denny’s, and never, ever left home without her Fendi Sunglasses, rings on her fingers, hats decorated with pins and always had a pair of ear rings on, even if they didn’t match. Bye Mom!!

  8. Grandma was humorous, ornery, a bit blunt ;-), and had her wits to the very end. She loved Lawrence Welk and scrambled eggs from Denny’s. She did not like Leon telling her what to do. No wheelchair, walker or salsa for her! There was never a more fashionable sparkly grandma with her hats and jewels galore. Hello Universe…the brightest star has arrived and her name is Mabel!
