Mabel Edna Petty

January 10, 1920 - February 15, 2012


During the early morning hours of Wednesday, February 15, 2012 Mabel Petty passed away peacefully at the Westview Hospital in Stony Plain, AB at the age of 92. Mabel was born to John and Emma McCutcheon in Ardath, SK. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was predeceased by her husband Bill in January 1976 and her son Ken in July 1996. She is survived by her son Jim and his wife Marilyn, Don and his wife Ester, Calvin and his partner Linda, and Lindon and his wife Marlane. She has 12 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. Mabel grew up on a farm near Ardath, SK and after marrying Bill in 1941, they moved to a farm near Conquest, SK. There she raised 5 boys and was very much a helping hand in the farming operation. In 1964 Bill and Mabel along with 3 of the boys moved to Cranbrook, BC. While living in Cranbrook, Mabel helped run the family business, Petty’s Supermarket. After the passing of Bill, she spent her time helping at the Alliance Church and meeting with her very good friends. She loved playing word games and Scrabble was her favourite. In 2004 Mabel moved to the Edmonton area where she lived until her passing. The family is grateful for the care she received while at the nursing home and in the hospital. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations, if desired maybe made in Mabel’s name to the Gideon Bible Society and the MS Society. A chapel service will be held in her memory for family and friends at the Mark Memorial Chapel, 2024 Industrial Road No. 2, Cranbrook, BC. Condolences may be left for the family at

I would like to send my love and prayers to each one of you in the loss of your Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma.

I remember her love and caring for all of us when I was a teenager. She always made us feel welcome. It was wonderful too, as I got older, to visit with her at Christian Women. She was a wonderful example to us all.

Our sympathy to the Petty family,
I met Mabel when I was a young mother; she was an inspiration to me. Being faithful and ever so kind, I was always so happy to chat with her. I enjoyed our ladies Bible study together, learning much from Mabel and her peers, Emma, Kay and Katie. She has left you and all of us who had the privilege of knowing her a legacy to emulate.
Much love, Don and Brenda Wik
