It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Mabel Florence Specka. Mabel was born on October 11, 1930 in rural Lizard Lake, Saskatchewan to Emil and Edith Domes. Mabel grew up on the family farm during the Great Depression, where she and her eight siblings learned the value of demanding work, the importance of family, and the necessity of laughter. In 1949 Mabel married George Specka, this marriage produced their son Gordon and their daughter Linda. After George’s passing in 1999, Mabel married Bill Hoppe and these two enjoyed many years of companionship until Bill’s passing in 2017. Mabel met each day with a cheerful outlook and an ever-present smile on her face. Her wisdom, compassion and generosity will be deeply missed by all who had the honour of knowing her.
Mabel is survived by her children Gordon Specka and Linda Honch (Sylvano); grandchildren Lee (Sally), Aaron (Alena), Neil (Sarah) and Kirk (Janice); great grandchildren Tyler, Parker, Kailie, Colton, Aniston; siblings Dorothy and Leonard (Anne). She is predeceased by both of her parents and her spouses, her sisters Lillian, Margaret, Ethel, her brothers Bill, George, and Elmer, and one grandchild, Brandy Honch. The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at the Biggar & District Health Centre, Gerein Funeral Service and Daphne Bender for their care and compassion during Mabel’s last days. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, and The Lung Association.
A Celebration of Mabel's life will be held Monday, November 20, 2023 at 2:00PM at New Horizons in Biggar, SK.
Tributes may be directed to The Heart and Stroke Foundation and The Lung Association.
