Obituary: Mabel Aafedt Palagi

Posted: Updated:

Mabel Aafedt Palagi left her earthly body on June 22, 2017.  She was in a big hurry to join her beloved Floyd, who had passed less than 60 days before her.

Mabel was born February 23, 1926 in Great Falls, Montana to a large, loving Norwegian family.  As a child of the depression, she learned much about conservation.  She could stretch two bits further than anyone you know.  Mabel was a master negotiator and a professional rummage sale attendee and hostess.  She collected many things in her long life and she not only knew where it was at all times but was an expert on all of it.

Her cinnamon rolls were legendary along with her “antipasto” and countless other meals.

She and Floyd were married for 69 years and enjoyed many years of health and happiness.

One of her biggest accomplishments in life was to be the mother of her three boys, John, Jerry, and David.

Together with Floyd’s hard work ethic and her ability to scrimp and save, she was able to be a full-time Mom and an excellent homemaker.

She was a shrewd card player and enjoyed beating many at Pinochle and multiple other games.  In addition, she enjoyed her computer time and collecting depression era glass.

Mabel leaves behind her three boys along with their wives: Donna, Terri, and Krist,a respectively.   She also has six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, along with multiple nieces and nephews.   Of her seven siblings, her brother, Roy, and his wife, Donna, survive her.

Our family once again sends our deepest gratitude to the staff at Brookdale and Hospice of Bozeman Health.  You all gave them both quality, comfort, and grace.  They will miss all their friends at Brookdale. 

Private services will be held at a later date for Floyd and Mabel to be joined once again.

Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service.  www.dokkennelson.com
