She participated in the family business, Stewart’s Groceteria on Barker Street for over 30 years and was a volunteer driver for children of the Rotary School for several years. Mabel took up golf in the early 70s and enjoyed her hobby for many years, especially during snowbird days with Bob in Florida.

Mabel is also survived by her longest and dearest friends Dorothy and Freeman Eldridge of Barker Street, Helen Forbes in Chippawa and Ev Meldrum in Fort Erie. Mabel was born October 29, 1923 in Deseronto, ON to Matilda Loreta (Wager) and John David Kellar. She is predeceased by her parents (1981 and 1948), sisters Loreta (1924) and Bess (2008) and brother Jack (1996).
