Mabel Ludiwg

In Loving Memory

Ludwig, Mabel (nee Gebhardt)

May 3, 1934 - August 22, 2023

Passed away on August 22, 2023. Pre-deceased by her beloved husband Lawrence Ludwig; dear mother of Lawrence (Kathryn) Ludwig Jr., Janet (Robert Weber) Ludwig, Rodney (Michelle de Vera) and Jeanne (Anthony) Woodland; beloved grandmother of Joshua Woodland, Grant Ludwig, and Drew Woodland; dear sister of William Gebhardt, Marion Gebhardt, Harold Gebhardt, the late Melvin Gebhardt, and the late Velma Gebhardt; daughter of the late Rufus and Josephine Gebhardt; dear aunt, sister-in-law, cousin, and friend. Mabel will be remembered as always on the go. Starting from her early years as a young girl helping on the Gebhardt family farm, she moved to the daunting task of raising a family of four kids. Along with running the house and keeping on the kids about their schoolwork, she also assisted her late husband’s upholstery business by meeting with clients and running to the fabric and supply warehouses. In her spare time, Mabel meticulously tended her flower and vegetable gardens. In later years she delighted in watching and teaching her grandsons the value of hard work. Throughout her busy life, she was always tenacious in handling multiple serious medical challenges as witnessed by her 28 years as a kidney transplant survivor.
