Mable was united in Matrimony to Lloyd Charles Rodgers, on September 14, 1973. She called him Roger. She loved Roger. They were together for 56 years. Mable loved music, the “Blues”, and “Quartet”. She loved to dress, dance, and cut her step spinning and kicking high, showing-off her unique moves! She announced herself as a “Super Star”!!! She had a hardy laugh that was so contagious. Mable enjoyed joking around with her family, watching her cowboys and Indians western movies, sports, and going to the casinos. She would talk for hours upon hours on the phone with her sisters Anna, Mary, granddaughter Tasha, grandson Gary, god-daughter, Dottie Ann Williams, and her friends, while drinking her morning coffee, and listening to her gospel quartet music. Mable would occasionally attend the Upper Room Church, in Indianapolis, IN. She would call upon her sisters and family to sing with her, forming her own quartet group. It was a delight to witness.
