    Mable Prickett Was born Jan. 1, 1894, at Goodland, Sherman County, Kansas, to Mathias and Sarah Lee Hollenbeck.  The family moved when she was a small child to Colorado where she was educated.  She graduated from the 10th grade at Limon, CO.  Mabel was the oldest of three children and was 13 years of age when the family was struck with typhoid fever and her mother died.  Mabel cared for her father and brother and sister for a number of years.  In 1913 the family moved to Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
    Mabel was married to Elzie E. Prickett on Aug. 1, 1913, at Scottsbluff, NE.  Born to this Union were 6 children.  They homesteaded at Lyman, NE, in 1924 and raised their family there.  In March 1947 they moved with 2 sons to Idaho.  She and Elzie operated a grocery store in Middleton until the spring of 1962 when they moved to a home on Hwy. 20 east of Caldwell.  After Mr. Prickett's death in 1962 she returned to Middleton and made her home there until 1984 when she moved to Caldwell to be closer to family.  After a fall and broken hip in 1988 and suffering a stroke, Mabel has resided at the Caldwell Care Center.  She was the last living member of her generation in the Hollenbeck and Prickett families and had been made Honorary President of the Prickett family reunions.
    Her years in Middleton were in support of the Methodist Church, Middleton Grange, clubs, quilting and gardening.  Her hobbies included a collection of buttons, cups and saucers, scrap books.  From an early age she attended the Christian Church and became a member in the early 1930s.
