MABEL ELECTA COVINGTON was born 28 Jul 1882 in Oklahoma "Indian" Territory to parents Jacob Amic Covington and Sarah Amelia Darlington. Although born in Oklahoma, Mabel was quick to correct anyone's perception about those born in that state/territory, and would often sternly admonish ". . .but I am NOT an 'Okie'."

Their 5 children were:
-Charles Edgar "NED" Nosler (Jr) b1906-d1978

-Margaret CAROLINE Nosler [Holcomb] b1919-d2004

At age 55, during the early/middle years of the Great Depression, her husband died, and the Nosler family grocery business in Oakland went bankrupt. She was a single widow for the remaining 28 years of her life. At the time of the family's business demise, Mabel went to work as a "baby nurse", employed by families who needed help caring for a newborn.
