Mable you were a great companion to my mother Lucy (nee Holwell) after my father died and to me as well. How many grocery store tapes did you add up for my daughter, Lothian!

You were loved

My sincere condolences to Mabel’s family on her passing. I had not seen her in several years. I met her first in the late 50’s when she would visit her Hunt Family in Shoal Harbour/Clarenville with her mom and dad. I was a very young girl living in the same household with my grandmother and never forgot how nice and kind she was. Her pride and joy was her car.

What a unique and wonderful soul, full of energy and joy. Mabel brought a smile to every face she encountered. RIP Mabel.

I’ll never forget the kindness and friendship Mable gave my grandmother in her final years. Thinking of her and sending my love.

She was a dear, sweet soul. Funny, caring, giving, smart and full of life. She and Auntie Ethel provided me with an unbreakable connection to our extended family along with the traditions of my parents past, that is immeasurable and irreplaceable.

God rest you, my darling, Mable.

As your God son, I remember and we have family film of you and I playing together when I was small child. Years later, I remember you and Auntie Ethel visiting us each summer for many years for a couple of weeks. Years later you were there when Marie and I opened our wedding presents almost 30 years ago and many years thereafter. I remember when shortly after and after Auntie Ethel’s passing Marie and I came and spent our vacation there with you for two of the best weeks of our life just the 3 of us. Although we lived thousands of miles apart, you made a big difference in my life and family. You and the love you gave will never be forgotten. I am sorry I couldn’t be there to help send you off to where you will be reunited with your Mom, my Dad, and all those we love and have lost.

After a long life may you now Rest in Eternal Peace.

After a long life may you now Rectt in Eternal Peace.

My condolences to the family during this time of grief. It was a pleasure serving her.

May Mable’s gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
Good speed dear lady.
