Aunt Mabel, you will be missed by so many. We are so glad for all the time you got to spend on your beloved farm. It was always so fun to be around you and Uncle Freddy. Stopping by your place on my many trips from Westby to Grand Forks and back was always great. Paul

We had the pleasure of meeting Mabel in the month of May. Tom Falck is Jeff’s grandfather and we came out to North Dakota to see the farm and had the pleasure of meeting Mabel and spending an afternoon with her enjoying family stories and her delicious potato salad. She was so very sweet and welcoming to us and my 7 year old son had so much fun to playing on the farm and climbing trees. Condolences to her family, friends, and loved ones.
