Obituary

A Life Remembered


On February 23, 1929 in Brunswick County, Warfield Virginia, Mabel Etta Charles was the 7th born of 10 children to the late Richard and Hester Hill. In 1948, she relocated to New York City where she eventually met her late husband Sidney Charles. They were married on September 15, 1951 and to this union were born 3 daughters and 1 son.

Mabel leaves to cherish her memory her 4 children: Linda McDonald (Milton, Jr.), Diane Tomlinson (Leonard, Sr.), Sylvia Charles, and Sidney Charles, Jr. (Gloria). She is also survived by her brothers: Robert Hill and Melvin Hill (Virginia), her sister Anna Nichols, 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren along with a number of relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her brothers: John, Edward, Richard, and Marvin and by her sisters: Josephine and Virginia.

Mabel was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses on July 2, 1988 and was a dedicated servant of Jehovah for 32 years. During that period of time she served as a regular pioneer for 25 years and she continued to be a zealous preacher of the good news of God's Kingdom, even in spite of her failing health.

In addition to her love for Jehovah, Mabel was a devoted homemaker and took excellent care of her family. She was a seamstress who made slip covers, drapes, clothes for her children as well as clothes for others. She also possessed a "green thumb" which was evident by the assortment of lovely potted plants that always adorned her home. She served as a paraprofessional for the New York City Board of Education and was known as an advocate for education. Her ultimate goal was to make every effort to ensure that the children in her care received the best education possible.

After a prolonged illness, Mabel took her final breath on Mother's Day, May 10, 2020. All those who had the privilege of knowing her, will miss her love, kindness, generosity, and sweet spirit. It goes without saying that Mabel Etta Charles was a truly remarkable person. She will be greatly missed but will never be forgotten.
