Mabel loved animals and had many pets over the years; her favorites by far were her 2 white poodles.  She was an avid reader and made the best broccoli and cheese casserole in the world.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence “Sonny” Clark; her parents, John Gordon and Anna (Betsy) Maryman; her stepfather, Ray Shilling and brothers, Albert and Thomas Maryman.

Survivors include a brother, Joe Pete (wife, Susan); a sister, Louise and many nieces and nephews who loved her like a grandmother.

The family would like to issue a heartfelt thank you to Jami Guidry who became a close friend and was a tremendous help to Mabel over the past several years.
