Mabel Marie King Phillips

Mabel Marie King Phillips was born to Meryl Rosetta Chism and Henry Cleveland King in Braden, Oklahoma, on February 3, 1919.  Mabel passed away May 24, 2019 at her home in Springdale.  She was 100 years old.  Mabel had five siblings, a brother, Loyd, and sisters, Sylvia, Dorothy, Lea and Dell, who all preceded her in death.

Early on Mabel’s family moved to Fayetteville where her father was in the grocery business.  Mabel attended Fayetteville High School and Fayetteville Business College.  She worked for various companies before she and her husband, Carroll, opened Peter Pan Cleaners in Fayetteville and Central Cleaners in Springdale.  Mabel and Carrol had three daughters, twins, Mary Sue and Linda Lou, and the youngest, Carol Ann.  Carroll, her husband, preceded her in death in 1991.

Mabel had several talents.  She loved writing poetry and won several awards.  She tap-danced, sang and played the piano, and loved all types of music.  She was a great cook, home decorator and sewed.  Her family always had pets, particularly dogs including one on the day she died.  She attended several churches in Springdale.

In addition to her daughters Mabel is survived by two sons-in-law, Charles Cate (Mary Sue’s husband) and Jim Batchelor (Carol Ann’s husband); six grandchildren, Jennifer, Nathan, Michael, Christopher, Kelly and Zachary; seven great-grandchildren, Mallory, Chaz, Tyler, Noah, Natalie, Isabella and Sofia; and one great-great-grandchild, Maya.

Mabel had a full life and met everyone with a smile and contagious loved.  She will be missed.

A memorial graveside service was Thursday, May 30, at Friendship Cemetery.

We always loved to come and Visit Aunt Mabel and Uncle Carrol and the girls, every year we could from California, then we got to move back here and visit when we could. Our Last Family Reunion at Mama’s was a special delight for me As they all surprised me with them all coming, and not one person told me. And Bill Bob and my brothers who I hardly ever got to see.

I did not know her personally only through pictures and info that her daughter Mary shared on Fb..she always had a smile and I always thought how beautiful and vibrant she was for someone that age. I’m so sorry for her loss. I know she will be greatly missed by all of her family but now she joins with her family that passed before her sharing her beautiful spirit and smile. What a great blessing to live 200 years! My love, heart and prayers go out to Mary and all of her family.. Continued prayers for the days ahead..
