Wife of Rulon C. Allred

A "blue baby" and a twin during the World War I influenza epidemic, Mabel spent her first moments in an oven being 'warmed up'. And how she warmed up to life! She lived with a passion for beauty and a remarkable capacity for unconditional love. She survived rheumatic fever, a sensitive nature, and raids by the FBI, and, like Thoreau, spent a night in jail for her convictions. She walked in grace, celebrating life and seeing always the best in others, including her parents, Reginald Patrick Finlayson and Ettie Josephine Hanson, her sisters Birdie (Covington) and Carol (Lloyd Sullivan) and Melba (her twin and her sister-wife) and her brother (David Reginald). The love of her life was her husband, Dr. Rulon C. Allred (md. March 28, 1937), who shared her delight in people and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She lavished her children, David Laddie (Terry), Joseph Laurie (Julie), Jared Rulon (Joanne), Dorothy Jeanne Solomon (Bruce), Gary Stephen (Bonnie), Robbie Marcus (Kayleen), with love and respect, bestowing a legacy of personal freedom. She showered each of her 25 grandchildren with individual appreciation. Her 13 great- grandchildren know that in Grandma Mabel's kingdom, even "little people" matter, perhaps most of all. Her romantic spirit, expressed through her piano playing at weddings, church services, musical productions, and radio recordings, lives on in her many students, in our hearts, and in paradise where she walks now with loved ones who passed on before her. She was truly an elect lady, who continued to grow throughout her life. After 65 years as the pianist of the Allred polygamous group, she re-embraced her membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and visited the LDS temple soon after her 84th birthday. She passed away peacefully... due to complications following surgery. (Deseret News Obituary, Salt Lake City, UT, May 9, 2005)
