Mabel Louella Peacock was born September 28, 1930 in Centerville, Texas. She was one of eight childrenborn to Henry Reed & Roberta (Bentley) Lagrone. Mabel married the love of her life, James Peacock, July 3, 1958. They made their home in Houston where James worked for the Houston Police Department. The couple moved back to Centerville in 1981 where Mabel remained until her passing.
Mabel loved her family and was a devoted wife and homemaker. She especially adored her children and grandchildren and enjoyed cooking for them and spending time with them. Mabel loved playing board games with her sisters, as well as, sitting on her front porch. Moments spent visiting folks who stopped by and talking about “old times” was another occasion that Mabel cherished. Perhaps, most of all, Mabel enjoyed shopping. It was her favorite pastime.
