Mabel was born on March 15, 1928 on the family farm in New England, N.D., to parents John Paul and Cora Mae (Mitchell) Elmquist. She was raised and educated in New England, and graduated high school with the class of 1946. After high school, she worked and traveled with her sisters all across the country, including the states of Virginia and Iowa. She moved to Dickinson, N.D. and worked for Woolworths, where she met Richard Kaul. The two were married on September 6, 1954 in Dickinson. To this union, two daughters were born; Janet and Sherry. The family moved to Glendive, where Mabel raised her family. She lived in the same house for 55 years, until her health forced her to move.
Mabel enjoyed crocheting, cooking, gardening, singing with the choir, canning her produce, sewing and taking care of her family. She and Richard were members of the Glendive Evangelical Church and had a very strong faith and commitment to their Lord and Savior.
Mabel was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Richard; two sisters, Myrtle Elmquist and Edith Hodges; and three brothers, Walter Elmquist, Warren Elmquist and Raymond Elmquist.
Mabel is survived by her children, Janet (Les) Snovelle of Helena and Sherry Weaver of Glendive; four grandchildren, Angee (Jon) Steir of Great Falls, Cory (Rebel) Rilley of Conrad, Mont., Casey (Desirae) Rilley of Glendive, and Misty Rilley of Billings; six great-grandchildren, Kayla Steir, Jesse Steir, Emily Rilley, Kohen Rilley, Kennedy Rilley, and Jentry Rilley; sister, Mildred (Harold) Ockinga, of Lakewood, Wash.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
