While her passing away was not unexpected, it has cast a gloom over the community in which she lived and also the home of her childhood and early married life at El Paso, where she has a host of friends. Her condition for the past two months has been critical. She had uraemic poisoning and on June 18 a partial stroke of paralysis. It was known for several weeks that her condition was such there was no hopes for recovery according to the diagnosis of the doctors of Lowell and a specialist of Chicago. All that human hands could do was done by the devoted husband, loving children, nurses and friends, but God claimed her as his own and called her to the land of rest.
Her life was devoted to home and family. No sacrifice was too great for her for the pleasure and comfort of the family that are left to mourn their loss and to be living monuments to honor the memory of the dear mother whose beautiful life of love and sacrifice was so nobly and freely given for her loved ones.
Funeral services were held at the home Friday at 2 p.m., and were attended by a large number of sorrowing friends and neighbors. Rev. V.B. Servies preached the funeral sermon. A quartette composed of Mrs. George Foster, Mrs. E.N. Hayhurst, Paul Hathaway and William Sheets, with Miss Violet Viant as accompanist, sang "Beautiful ____ of ____," "___ Will Take Care of You," and "Sometime You'll Understand," which were favorite hymns of Mrs. Cable's. Interment was made in the Lowell cemetery, where the members of Royal Cedar Camp of Royal Neighbors, of which the deceased was a member, performed their ritualistic work. Undertaker John Castle had charge of the burial service. The following acted as pall bearers: Ross, Ralph, Floyde and Frank Cable, sons of the deceased; Charles Bailey and Lindsay Dye, cousins of the deceased.
