As I read Mabel's obituary, I was transported back to Woodsfield in the early '70's. The Swiss Chalet was the setting for many of my high school social experiences. Mabel's smile, her laugh, and her pleasant voice are just some of the happy memories from those days. May those grieving Mabel's loss be comforted by their own happy memories.
