Born on June 25, 1942 in York, PA; she was the daughter of the late Germanus and Susannah Hikes Sanders. She was married to Richard Krise and he preceded her in death on March 18, 2006. Mabel had many joys in life. Her faith in God the Father, a good card game of cinch, listening to old country music, keeping her family up on the news and she was always up for a good political debate. She also had a lifelong love of painting and capturing memories on canvas. She taught all her children about her love of farming, gardening and being self-sufficient.
