Mabel was the oldest daughter of Benjamin "Frank" Shupe and Delora Alice Shupe.

Her first husband was Russsell Danielson. She and Russell were parents of seven children: Catherine, Rita (died young), Marjorie, Jeanette, Steven, Peter and Wilma Danielson.

After her husband Russell went missing to Colorado shortly after the birth of their daughter Wilma in 1941, Mabel went to work at the McGill Mfg Co in Valparaiso. Her Aunt Mary Shupe (mother's sister) came up from Kentucky to help with care for her children. Mabel was a hard worker and had a big garden with a canning kitchen in the basement of her house.

Her second husband was James A Kerr. Jim and Mabel retired to Edneyville, Henderson Co, NC. After Jim's death, Mabel continued living in Edneyville, NC. She died at daughter Catherine's home.
