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.
