A private family service and Celebration of Life will be held next spring at the Riverview Cemetery in Pickstown, S.D. for Marietta Mabie, 68, of Pickstown, S.D., who passed away peacefully on November 4, 2019, after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Marietta was born June 29, 1951, in Langdon to George and Marjorie (Penner) Plummer. She graduated from Langdon High School in 1969 and then graduated from business college. She took a job with the Corps of Engineers where she met her future husband, Ron. She and Ron were married in 1973. A short time after, Ron was transferred to work at the Fort Randall Dam, and they moved to Pickstown, S.D. She was a member of the Country Quilters and the South Dakota Ornithologists Union. She loved quilting, spending time with her quilting friends, going birding with her husband, wildflowers, gardening, feeding and watching birds in her backyard. Quilting was her passion, and she was known for her beautiful quilts and use of colors. She also enjoyed spending time with her nieces and nephews.
Marietta leaves behind her husband of nearly 46 years; a sister, Jolene (Allan) Thompson, of Langdon; brothers-in-law: Richard (Carrole) Mabie of Lynnwood, Wash. and Doug (Syl-Vonna) Mabie of Raleigh, N.C.; sister-in-law Marjie (Ed) Peterson of Minot; and many nieces and nephews, whom she dearly loved. Marietta was preceded in death by her parents and grandparents.
