Mary A. Cable, 86, of Mason, left this world for her home with the Lord at 6:45 AM Thursday, March 14th, 2013 at Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Effingham.

A celebration of life will be held at 6 PM Monday, March 18, 2013 at the Mason Christian Church, Mason with visitation 1 hour prior to service. Interment will be held at 11 AM Tuesday at Maple Hill Cemetery, Fairfield. Memorials are requested to the family and will be divided between different establishments in memory of Mary.  Pagel Funeral Home in Edgewood is in charge of arrangements.

She was born on June 21, 1926 in Wayne Co., IL the daughter of Marion O. and Lyndal E. (Marshel) Scarbrough. She married Robert C. Cable on June 28, 1947 in East St. Louis and he preceded her on September 28, 1995.

Mary grew up in Wayne Co., IL where she graduated from Fairfield High School and then beauty school. After being diagnosed with MS, she gave up being a beautician and went to work for the Illinois Glove Factory after moving to Effingham with her family. Mary loved to be outside with the sun in her face, either mowing her yard or just cutting down trees! Mary also enjoyed baking and sharing her love for baking with her neighbors, especially those who unselfishly did things for her around her home in Mason. She was a member of the Mason Christian Church, where she loved to worship whenever she was able to do so. So many, including the wonderful staff at Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center will sorely miss Mary.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded by her parents, brothers; John, Berlin, and Jessie, and sister; Bernice Scarbrough.
