Mabel A. (Pace) Benedict

Mabel Snowden (Pace) Benedict passed away at 100 years of age.

Her two husbands and three sons predeceased her as did her parents, brother, and three sisters. She leaves her daughter Marilyn Urie, daughters-in-law, Susan Pace and Sofyie Pace, along with ten grandchildren and many great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

Mabel was born in Whatcom County and lived, worked, and volunteered almost her entire life in Bellingham. In June, Mabel celebrated her one hundredth birthday with many, many friends, neighbors and family members. She also received a certificate from Western Washington University for her work in the campus library. 

The family wants to thank the wonderful people working at Fairhaven's Brookdale Assisted Living Center where she spent the last ten years of her life. Also, they are thankful for Hospice Care. 

At Mabel's request, there will be no final service or memorial.
