June 6, 1917 - Jan 11, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY Mabel Lewis Allred went to be with our Lord and Savior on Jan. 11, 2013, in OKC, OK. Proud to be a part of the Greatest Generation, she was born on June 6, 1917, to George and Chorena Lewis in Macomb, IL. She grew up on the farm in Illinois and attended school there. After WWII, she married the love of her life, Harold Allred. Two years later, the couple moved to Amarillo, TX, where Mabel became a devoted Texan and built a good life for the family. Mabel loved the Lord! She and her husband attended Paramount Terrace Christian Church in Amarillo for many years. She was a homemaker and a dedicated and loyal wife, who supported her husband in his many career adventures, and Harold was Mabel's greatest admirer! She was a loving mother, cherished grandmother and great-grandmother, who loved nothing more than preparing a big home-cooked meal for the people she loved. Mabel was ahead of her time in learning about nutrition, vitamins, exercise and a healthy lifestyle, a vision she wanted to pass on to her family. She missed her family in Illinois and always stayed close to extended family and friends throughout the years. One of Mabel's best qualities was a good sense of humor, and she was always ready to play cards or share a good joke, but just be ready to discuss her favorite topics, politics or sports! She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Harold Allred. She moved to OKC five years ago and leaves a loving family consisting of her daughter, Judy Wilkins, of OKC; and daughter, Beverly Widner, and her husband, Danny, of Coppell, TX. "Mimi" was blessed to have three grandchildren, Allie O'Connor (and husband Kelly), Jake Wilkins (and wife Jamie), and Philip Widner; as well as three great-grandchildren, Claire, Crawford and Charlie O'Connor. She also leaves behind many wonderful relatives and friends. A Memorial Service will be held at Church of the Servant in OKC on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, at 1 p.m. Memorials may be made to
