Mabel moved with her family to Willow Point in 1945 and was involved with many community activities. She was one of the founding members of Bethany Lutheran Church and loved the fellowship she had with the ladies who quilted every week for World Relief. Labourers for Christ, Happy Wanderers, Lighthouse Circle and many other church groups that were very special to her.
She enjoyed travelling to Scotland, Hawaii, Alaska, Caribbean, all across Canada (Churchill’s polar bears), many places in the USA, with visits to relatives and friends everywhere.
