Longtime Siskiyou County resident, Mabel Jean Stewart, passed away on November 2, 2015 at the UC Davis Medical Center in Davis, California at the young age of 40.
While at UC Davis, she gave the selfless gift of life to those in need through Organ and Tissue Donation.
Mabel was born on March 5, 1975 in Downey, California to Phillip and Jean McKinley.
The family moved to Siskiyou County when Mabel was young; she spent her school years at Butteville Elementary, and then Mount Shasta High School. Mabel was currently enrolled at College of the Siskiyous.
Mabel had a talent for the culinary arts, as she loved to bake, cook and cater. Her biggest devotion and greatest passion, however, was being a mother to her daughter, Ellie Jean Stewart.
Mabel was preceded in death by her mother, Jean; and two sisters, Sherrie and Cathy McKinley.
She is survived by her father, Phillip of Spokane, Washington; her daughter, Ellie of Weed, California; and her two brothers, Barry McKinley of Southgate, California and Cory McKinley of Spokane, Washington.
At this time, no services are scheduled for Mabel.
