"Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come." God envelops us in love and strength, we have absolutely no reason to fear for the future or life after death. "She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her."
Mable transitioned to be with the Lord on Sunday January 29, 2023 at her home in Lynchburg Virginia.
Mable was born February 14, 1955 to Lander and the Late Louise Carr. She accepted Christ at an early
age and joined the Peaks Baptist Church.
Mable was a mother and a good friend. She leaves to carry on her legacy her three children whom she loved unconditionally; Katina, Tamika and Lloyd, Jr. (Skeet) along with her grandchildren were her pride and joy.
She inspired them, encouraged them and spoiled them often with special moments of expression for each
of them. She always let them know that she was available for discussion and no subject was off limits.
The love for her family was pure and genuine.
With strong will and determination, she challenged each medical condition and never gave up. She fought
them with a smile and continued to live life for herself and her family and met each occasion with smile and laughter. As a diamond in the rough that turned to a precious stone each step was a lesson that would lead her closer to GOD.
Mable worked many years at Thomasville Furniture in Appomattox, Virginia. She spent many years at
Camelot Nursing Home in Lynchburg Virginia. This journey developed many relationships sharing her
Joy, patient and staff smile.
She shared a lifelong friendship with Gilda Jones, Alberta Pannell and Juanita Walker that lasted well
over twenty years. Their bond was unbreakable; they stuck together through thick and thin. True friends
until the end of her journey. She made friends everywhere and inspired some of the staff at Liberty Ridge
Rehabilitation to sneak her food in especially rolls from Golden Corral.
Mable had a passion for interior design; she could take a few pictures and some crafts from the Goodwill
and turn a room into something priceless. She loved her flowers and had a green thumb and could make
a plant bloom and cover a room with the same joy she spread among others. Mable was creative and loved
being unique from her hair styles to her fashionable fingernails. She inspired some of her grandchildren
to get dreads just like her.
Mable leaves to cherish her memories her father Lander and a brother Eddie Ray (Kathy); two daughters,
Katina (Derrick), Tamika, and one son Lloyd III; husband Oscar Booker; nine grandchildren; Patrice, Sierra, Kentario, Zentaria, Lataria, Quentario, Altario, Legend and Jayah; three aunts, Alberta Ford, Grace Jones, and Ida Scott; two uncles; Leroy Carr and George Jones and a host of cousins, friends and relatives.
