My pleasure in knowing Mabel was through Dover Congregational U.C.C. from the 1980's to the present day. Our church library houses Mabel's writings on church history, herbs and fiction. In these last years I would deliver a bag of books to her home. After she read them we would discuss each book. I loved hearing her intelligent insights. Through books we formed a beautiful friendship. She was a gift to me. I will miss her greatly. My love to her family. She spoke of you always.

Mabel was a very dear friend. She was a smart, well read, caring woman who was always interested in hearing stories about her church family. She was dedicated to her church and served in many ways. She is probably remembered the most for her leadership in the library. Her love for books led her to this place of service. In later years, she loved to tell stories of her adventures as a wife and mother. I will miss Mabel but know she is happily in the arms of Jesus.
