Mable Louise Bright was born in Damascus, Maryland to the late Mary Holsey Bowens and Samuel Bright on July 23, 1939. She passed away peacefully on May 4, 2020.
Along with her sisters, Mabel was raised in the loving home of Glenwood “Buck” and Dorothy Turner “Dot” Bailey in Norbeck, Maryland. Mabel had quite an extensive family.
Mable was a strong, caring and funny woman. Retiring from her career in nursing just before her 80th birthday, Mable dedicated many selfless years to her patients in assisted living.
To call Mable strong, is an understatement. She not only was a cancer survivor, but also wore a pacemaker. On top of that, four years after having her right leg amputated, she had to have the other amputated as well. None of that ever slowed her down though. Until shortly after her retirement, she suffered a severe stroke. Although her will was strong, her body had finally said enough and couldn't bounce back.
Left to cherish her memory is her son Robert Lee Ellis; her granddaughter Brittany Lynn Ellis; her sisters Clarrisse Mae Riggs, Gertrude 'Alice' Vinson, Bernice Mary Wilson; long-time friend she always called her “brother” Robert Creek, and countless cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Mable was preceded in death by her brother Samuel 'Leroy' Bright and Mr. and Mrs. Glenwood Bailey.
