Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 13, 1886
Leonidas
St. Joseph County
Michigan, USA
Death: Mar. 2, 1954
Kalamazoo
Kalamazoo County
Michigan, USA

Mabel was born in a two-story log home on the corner of Summit and Michigan Roads, in Leonidas Twp., St Joseph Co, MI; she referred to this location as "Johnny Cake Hill". Her parents later lived in a farm house in front of the log house.

She was not assigned a middle name at birth, but liked the name "Ruth", so adopted it. Hence, there is an "R" on her grave marker and "Ruth" appears as a middle name on her death record.

She was a member of the First Church of the Nazarene.

[Information per granddaughter - Kay]

UPDATED Aug 28, 2015 to include bio and addition of middle name.
