She married her high school sweetheart, David Clinton Stables, Jr. and enjoyed sixty-three years of marriage. Together they loved traveling, playing bridge, hosting family gatherings and being involved in numerous community organizations. However, her pride and joy were her children and grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the dedicated staff at The Woodland and Centra Hospice, as well as her devoted companions Karen, Sally and Y'vonne.
