Born on September 19, 1925 she was a daughter of the late Mable (Rouse) Dale and John R. Bougas. As a woman who fully engaged in life, she loved the Buffalo Bills, butterflies, babies and, of course, her family. She thoroughly enjoyed being a wife, mother, and active member of her community. Mabel was best known for her homemade pies, signature peach geraniums, and her playful quick wit.

Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Richard A. Keihl in 2012; daughter, Deborah A. Keihl in 2015; sister, Norma Jean Bailey and brothers, John R. and Anthony Bougas.

Survivors include her son, Michael R. (Charlene) Keihl; grandson, Richard A. Keihl, Jr.; great-grandchildren, Giovanni M. Keihl, Angelo J. Damico George, Raylee A. Smith, and Taylor C. Smith; also many nieces and nephews, including Patty Jo Sawvel and DJ Mahar who helped make her dreams come true to live and die in her home. A special thanks to her family of caregivers, including Rose Damico George and Jen Stornelli.
