MABLE STEWART MERRITT Mable Stewart Merritt went to Jesus on December 19th, 2017. Her celebration of life will be at 1:00 pm, Saturday, January 6th, 2018, at Mt. Moriah, 10507 Holmes Road, Kansas City, MO. Mable was born on September 8th, 1925, in Canandaigua, New York, to Raymond E. and Olga (Wagner) Merritt. Her family moved to Grosse Pointe, Michigan, where Mable graduated from Grosse Pointe High School. Her parents and her brother, Ray Jr., predecease her. Mable moved to Lake St. Claire, Michigan, where she worked for the United Auto Workers' Union for 40 years as a typesetter. Upon retirement, Mable moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where she pursued her artistic gifts of wood burning, wood chipping and drawing. She also found fellowship and joy in her community at Covenant Chapel Evangelical Presbyterian Church. She cherished her cat, Luke. Mable was a fiercely independent person who wanted more than anything to remain in her house to her passing. With the hard work and loving attention of Vivian, her caregiver, along with her dear friends, Ed and Sally Grace, Beverly and Kim, she was able to do so up to her last month. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Wayside Waifs at in Mable's honor are requested. It was humbling, a joy, and a challenge to care for Mable, yet a process through which we are sure God was honored. To Him be the glory! Pam & Glenn Read

We praise God that we were able to know Mable and and to worship with her at Covenant Chapel. She had a great personality and sense of humor. She loved her donuts and anytime she wanted one we were pleased to go fetch one for her. When her little Ford wasn't parked in front and she was missing from her chair in the corner at Church we knew to ask Glenn and Pam how / where she was. They were such loyal and loving friends to take care of her in the last months. We will miss Mable and thank God we knew her.
