Mable was a member of the Iola Missionary Baptist Church. When asked at her 90th birthday party what was the secret to living to be 90, she replied, “The secret to living to be ninety is to love God, don’t drink, work hard, and go fishing every day.” She caught her last fish three years ago at the age of 93. She loved to fish whenever and wherever she could. She liked to garden and work in her yard. She had the only grapefruit tree around these parts that grew exceptionally large grapefruit enjoyed by many.
