Mable enjoyed time with her brothers and sisters working hard on the farm, especially taking care of the chickens. She later moved to Marshall, living with her sister on Main Street, and working at Swift Turkey Processing. Mable then met and later married the man of her life, Cletus on September 28, 1948, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, where she became a member for over seventy years.

Mable was a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother first and foremost, and later worked as a cook at Holy Redeemer Catholic school, and Marshall High school. She loved spending time with her family, traveling, camping, and going to the lake at her son’s place.
