She had also taken part in the Women's Society of Christian Service, the women's circle, and the Philathea Class for Christian Women. She enjoyed sewing, knitting, crocheting, and spending time in her garden.

 Mable is survived by one brother Bruce (Joyce) Long of Waterville; and one sister, Ruth Wickmann of Fort Collins, Colorado. She was preceded in death by her parents; and three sisters, Helen Mollenhauer, Alice Wilson and Hazel Suemnick.

 Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, April 12, 2013, at Faith United Methodist Church in Waseca, with Rev. Victor Waters officiating.
