  1. Godly woman and prayer warrior are perfect words for my dear Aunt Mable. I am so thankful and blessed to have had her for my aunt. She was 95 years young. I cannot tell you how many times she called and would pray with me on the phone when I was about to have surgery, etc. I cannot imagine the magnitude of her Heavenly rewards and her rejoicing with family there in Heaven…..the place where she set her sights on many many years ago…..for herself and friends and family. God bless you and all our precious Wolfe family.
