Information from Little Cedar Lutheran Church, written in 1984:
Mabel Hukee Skogeboe was born on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1904, to Bertha and John Hukee on the Hukee farm. She was the youngest of seven children. She was baptized in the country church and confirmed in the Norwegian language in the Little Cedar Church in Adams.

She attended country school and Adams Consolidated School and graduated from high school in 1924. After helping at home, she was employed in Austin.

On July 16, 1934, she married Delmar Skogeboe from Story City, Iowa, and to this union one daughter, Shirley, was born. In 1936, Delmar was taken suddenly ill and passed away at Rochester. Mabel and her daughter of four months, moved back to the farm to help her mother and two brothers. Her mother passed away in 1950.

She became active in ALCW, Circle, Legion Auxiliary, and tying quilts. She enjoyed the films at Austin High School and the plays at Austin Community College for many years and now the band and chorus at AHS, and Senior Citizens trips and parties.

After Shirley and David Crockett from Albert Lea were married she has a chance to do a lot of traveling to visit them and the grandchildren, Brian, Stevie, and Mary. She made many trips to the beautiful country of Northern Minnesota and into Canada.

In 1973, Leonard's health failed and he passed away in 1975. The farm was then sold and in 1979, Jarphine went to live at the Adams Health Care Center. Mabel now makes her home at the Northside Apartments. She goes, when she can, to the nursing home to help and visit her brother and her sister, Gert.

John 14:2 has been one of her favorite bible verses from Weekday School and Psalm 118:24 is also a favorite. Her favorite hymns are "This is My Father's World" and "Lift High the Cross."
