The family of Mable Elizabeth Stanley (Pembleton) are saddened to announce her peaceful passing on January 23, 2022, at the young age of 104 years, 1 month and 16 days. She passed away at the Kindersley Hospital with her beloved family by her side.
Mable was a lifelong resident of Kindersley, in her own home until she moved to Caleb Village for the last 9 years.
Mable was born in Kindersley on December 7, 1917, to John and Elizabeth Pembleton, the oldest of 13 children. She spent several years of her childhood on a farm in the Cereal area of Alberta before her family moved back to the Kindersley area to farm Southeast of town. Mable’s schooling was taken at Turvin, which was a few miles further Southeast of the farm. The farm became a century farm designation in 2010.
Mable’s work life started early, where she was a housekeeper for McLardy’s, moving to the GWG in Edmonton, and coming home to work at Reid’s Grocery Store, as well as the OK Economy which later became Extra Foods. At the time it was a new store in the mall from which she retired a couple years after its opening.
Mable married Murray Richard “Doc” Stanley January 11, 1950. They had 2 children, Aaron Murray (1951), and Cary Lou (1953). When Mable wasn’t working, both her and Doc were involved with the Senior Klippers during winter months and attending ball and catching the odd football game during the summer months.
While Doc was with the Kindersley Fire Department for 43 years, she sometimes had to wait for meals and even soloing her daughters wedding reception when a call came in.
The family had organized a group attendance at the New Mosaic stadium to attend a Rider game for her 100th birthday. She was still listening to local games on radio and never missed the CFL games, or hockey games on TV, as well as enjoyed watching curling.
She was a member of the Royal Purple, and United Church, she enjoyed crochet work with Caleb Village and bowled for several years. She spent a lot of her time in her garden and always made sure she would have some vegetables to share with others. Her Saskatoon pie was to die for as well as her family meals.
Mable is survived by her remaining sister Glenna Marchant (Nunweiler), son Aaron (Ann) Stanley, Grandsons; Doug (Patty) Allin, Darcy (Michelle) Allin, and Devin (Sarah) Allin. Her great-grandchildren; Emily, Brody, Bricen, Kaylee, Austin, Cole, and Wade. As well as many nieces and nephews.
Mable was predeceased by her parents, her husband Doc in (1980), son-in-law Glen Allin (2010), and daughter Cary Lou (2012), as well as her many siblings (from infancy to adulthood), and many in-laws, and several nieces and nephews.
There will be a funeral service held for Mable at the New Life Community Church (401 4th Ave West) Kindersley, Saskatchewan on Friday, January 28th 2022 at 1:00 p.m. with Neil Nunweiller and Pastor Kelly Froese officiating. Interment will follow in the Kindersley Cemetery.
