Mabel Reece
Mabel ReeceCross and FlameMabel Reece, 91 of New Carlisle, formerly of Richwood, died peacefully Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at her home.

She was born April 30, 1929 near Richwood to the late Maurice D. and Daisy A. (Swartz) Warner. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Warren “Friday” Reece, infant son, Samuel, a daughter, Sally Smith, as well as many special cousins and friends.

Mabel was a 1947 graduate of the Richwood High School. She was a lifelong member of Claibourne United Methodist Church and attended the Church of the Brethren in New Carlisle. She had worked for O.M. Scott and Sons for 33 years. She was very proud to be recognized for her work ethic, abilities, and was promoted accordingly from starting in the mailroom and retiring as the account’s payable supervisor. She was also a talented seamstress and shared this skill with her daughters. In her earlier years she did alterations for Livingston’s Store in Richwood.

Mabel loved to travel and made sure her children got to see as much of the United States as she could provide, from the trips to New York City, to visiting family and sightseeing, including a cross-country trip to California and back. Mabel and Friday enjoyed camping together. In her lifetime she had visited every state capital, Canada, Mexico, Central America, as well as a couple of trips to Europe and Israel, where she was grateful to have the opportunity to walk where Jesus walked.

She is survived by a son, Timothy (Toni) Livingston, Marysville; a daughter, Konni (Ted) Buskirk, New Carlisle; three grandchildren, Amelia (Mike) Miller, Drew (Abigail) Livingston, Anny (Rob) Brill; ten great-grandchildren, Deryk Van Sickle, Skylar Miller, Aurora (Tyler) Dollins, Gabe Livingston, Ella Livingston, Aggie Livingston, Jewelly Livingston, Ryot Livingston, Ethan Brill and Wyant Brill.
Brother, Charles (Jeanne) Warner of Richwood and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

I remember Mabel from my 4-H days. I belonged to the Claibourne Calico Cooks led by her mother, Daisy Warner, who I really admired for her friendliness and patience with us.  Sometimes she had Mabel help us or demonstrate her sewing ability.  Mabel was very much like her mom in her friendliness. You have my sympathy.  My oldest sister and family lived in New Carlisle for over 50 years and I remember it fondly.

Mabel was a great lady, a dear friend, one whom I first became acquainted with in high school.
That was when Claibourne was "miles away" from West Jackson. Just recently we talked by phone.  She was proud of her family and she had every reason to be.  I am sure you are all proud of her, as you have every reason to be.

Dear Tim, Konni and Family,
We are so sorry to learn of your loss. I loved your Mom,
we rode to work together to Scotts, went to church together
and were in Gramma Daisy's 4-H club.  We had good times.
Got stuck in snow drifts, camped at Lake Erie for the Church
camping week-end, cooked at the pancake suppers and made
sauerkraut.  She was super friend and mentor.

To Mable's family, I am very sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Mable when I would see her sitting at the volunteer desk at the hospital, she always had a smile on her face, and always wanted to know how you were doing.  She was a lovely lady and a blessing to her family and friends, she will be dearly missed.  Always treasure your memories and hold her in your heart, she lives forever there now. May God be with you during this difficult time.
