She was a current member of Crestview Baptist Church in Midland. She was a former faithful member of Sardis Baptist Church until its closing and then Cross Roads Baptist Church of Rotan, TX. Mabel was a farmer's wife and homemaker. She made it a priority to read her Bible and devotional daily as well as starting and ending the day in prayer. Her favorite pastime was quilting, quilting 100’s of quilts throughout the years and making sure every new grand baby was welcomed with a quilt she had made. She also enjoyed playing Skipbo, and any other card game or dominoes anyone was willing to play with her. She loved to fellowship with others often bringing her famous TV snack, or puppy chow to whatever event she attended. She loved ice cream and had it daily.
