Mabel was born to Sidney and Carrie Cagle on April 29, 19... (She made us promise we would not post her age).
Mabel was reunited with her parents Sidney and Carrie Cagle; two sisters Jessie Cagle Ledbetter and Jo Anne Cagle Lyda; two brothers Harold Cagle and Doug Cagle.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years Harold Blythe; sister Marion (J.D.) Tweed; two daughters Deitra (Rex) Jones, Lesa (Ben) Balentine; son Sidney (Tammy) Blythe. Three grandchildren Justin (Katheryn) Blythe, DeLaina (David) Lewkowicz, and Bennett Balentine. Two great-grandchildren Zachary Lewkowicz and Gabriella Blythe.
To her family she was Momma and Mamaw. She devoted 68 years of her life to her husband and the early years were spent alongside Harold as he started Blythe Construction. As their family expanded she was a dedicated mother and grandmother ensuring her family knew her unconditional love for them. Mabel loved her church, Mud Creek Baptist, and was a dedicated friend to many. She was often known for doing everything she could to help someone in need, always putting others above herself. When her great-grandchildren arrived they became her light and joy. Momma/Mamaw left behind a legacy of faith, compassion and love for her husband, children and grandchildren. A true testament of her life can be found in the people who love her the most.
