Mable was the daughter of Robert Jackson and Eliza Jane Wilson Cook and moved with her family as a child from Arkansas to Prentiss County, Ms. They lived in the Shady Grove community and she attended Robertson School until the family moved to the Pratt's Community of Lee County where she met and married William Arthur Bishop on March 28th 1923. In 1925 she and her husband moved to the Chapelville (now Friendship) Community and built the house in which she died, three weeks short of her 100th birthday. She was the mother of Joe Richard, Winford "Cotton", Marvin, Andrew Nathaniel and Gloria Ann Bishop. Known and loved as "Mamaw" by all, she gardened all her life until a hip replacement at age 95 limited her abilities. She was the oldest living member of the Friendship Baptist Church and maintained a sharp mind until the last few weeks of her life.
