Born: Feb 10, 1927
Date of Passing: Jan 21, 2020Offer Condolences or Memory
Born February 10, 1927 in St. Charles, she was the youngest of 10 children of Patrick and Emily Hedges.
She was predeceased by her parents and siblings, Charles, Bert, Archie, Bill, Winnie, Elsie, Rose, Vera and Louise. She is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, great and great-great ones!
For many years she and her family were the foundation of St. Charles United Church. Mabel was devoted to the Sunday School, Cradle Roll, choir, and contributing unlimited knitting and baking with her sister Vera.
In the 1970s she accepted the daycare challenge for Karyn, Clint and then Doug; her family has now expanded with seven grandchildren.
Her move to Kiwanis Courts opened more new experiences, with no need to cook, and many daily activities to add to her reading, knitting, and puzzles.
She especially enjoyed visits and phone calls from nieces and nephews; and grandchildren attending Christmas or Halloween parties. She will be missed.
For their help, we wish to thank her many friends, the staff at Kiwanis, and the staff at Grace Hospital for making her last few days as comfortable as possible.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, January 30 at 2:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. Interment will be at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
We as the children of Winnie and Charlie Adcock always lived in British Columbia abut every summer we would get on the train and go visit Uncle Bert. Auntie Vera and Auntie Mabel and granma and granpa Hedges Always had fun and loved their garden swing. Auntie Vera and Auntie Mabel always came out for a visit to BC. I talked to Auntie Mabel before Christmas and she was telling me about her false teeth that she was trying to get use to. What a brave soul to tackle that when you are in your nineties. They were all very special in our lives. We have great memories of them. - Posted by: Phyllis Ross (niece) on: Jan 27, 2020
Mable was a kind and gentle soul who lived the Lord and taught me about the Saviour. I have fond memories of sitting VERY close to her while she told us the wonderful Bible stories. I felt the spirit of the Lord for the first time at her knee. I'll be eternally grateful. - Posted by: Sharon Lepine nee Brown (She was my Sunday school teacher and CGIT LEADER) on: Jan 25, 2020

My condolences to the extended family. I will always have very fond memories of Mabel who was instrumental in providing so many character building experiences for me to be involved in as a young boy. She taugnt my Sunday School classes, was involved in Summer Bible School and led the boy's group (TYROS) that held weekly meetings and went on various outings under Mabel's leadership at the United Church . - Posted by: RICHARD RISBEY (Friend) on: Jan 25, 2020
