Mable was the oldest member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Dayton and was previously a member of their choir and women’s mission. She worked as a cook for many years at Frank’s Café and for other restaurants in the Houston area. Mable also provided other domestic duties such as housework and childcare. She could do just about anything she set her mind on.
Mable pursued many interests, some of which included her love of fishing, cooking, baking, and gardening. She had a green thumb and enjoyed spending time in her veggie and flower gardens.
