Mable was born February 15, 1934, in Salina, Utah to John and Faye Olsen. She married the love of her life Don Sanderson on June 22, 1950. Together they raised four children in Hunter, Utah, celebrating 67 years together prior to Don’s passing on June 27, 2017.
Mable retired from Granite School District School after 20 plus years of serving lunch to a whole lot of “Henry & Henrietta’s”.
Mom’s greatest passion was her family; she never missed a ballgame, concert, or dance recital while raising her children. And when the grandkids came along, she had even more events to go and enjoy. She loved to play cards and other games with the grandkids, great-grandkids, and anyone else that would join in. She loved to go shopping, camping, and just being on the go all the time, keeping her kids on the run all summer. She enjoyed watching the Utah Jazz and usually never missed a Utes Game on TV. Her favorite shows where Gunsmoke, Andy Griffith, and anything with John Wayne. She loved visiting with anyone who stopped by to see her.
She is survived by her sons; Neil & Kathi, Robert & Laurie, Douglas & Susie and daughter Carol & Don Dabb; 13 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren, and sister Susan Westenskow.
Preceded in death by her husband Don; parents; brother Nate; and grandson Tyler J. Sanderson.
