Mabel was born in Meyonne, Saskatchewan but was raised at Woodrow, Saskatchewan on the family farm. In 1952 she married Clarence Senft and they farmed together at Hodgeville, Saskatchewan. Then in 1962 they moved to Swift Current, Saskatchewan where they raised their two children and still continued to farm. In 1983 they retired from farming and in 1987 they moved to Medicine Hat where they continued to reside. Mabel was very active in the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Swift Current. She sang duets and loved to sing with her husband and daughter. Mabel taught regular Sunday school as well as Chinese Sunday school for the Chinese Church held in the Christian Missionary Alliance Church. She was so very proud of her Chinese Sunday School Students as one of them became a concert pianist and later played piano for the church. Mabel liked to do needlework and especially loved to sew. When she was stricken with cancer the thing that bothered her most was that she had to leave her sewing room; it was her relaxation room and where she spent many hours.
