Mabel Treverton

A long-time resident of Rossland, passed away peacefully at the Columbia View Lodge on October 27, 2011. She was born on March 26, 1927 in Rossland, BC.

Friends will remember Mabel as a well-read lady, with a quick, dry wit who way never afraid to express her opinion. Although she liked to maintain a stern outer demeanor, she had a warm, loving heart for her family and friends.

Mabel often wore a pin which said, “I’VE SURVIVED DAMN NEAR EVERYTHING!” that appropriately summed up Mabel’s approach to life.

Mabel was predeceased by her brothers; Les and William (Spike).

At Mabel’s request, there will not be a service. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements

Donations may be made in Mabel’s name to the British Columbia Heart and Stroke Foundation at # 4 – 1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, British Columbia V1Y 9M9 or online at
