Mabel C. Nollau

Mabel Charlotte Nollau, nee Boedeker, age 103, died in New Athens, IL, on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, at the home of her daughter in New Athens, IL. Mabel was born February 29, 1920, on a farm near Valmeyer, IL.

Mabel was preceded in death by her husband, William L. Nollau, who died May 15, 1989, her parents, William and Elizabeth Boedeker, nee Weitkamp, her brothers, Clarence and Lester Boedeker, and her son-in-law, Paul Berowski.

Mabel dedicated her life to her husband and her daughters. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt.  Mabel is survived by her daughters, Barbara Ann Aumann, of Mesa, AZ, Judith Kay Berowski, of New Athens, and Mary Beth (Charles) Kujawski, of Hecker; grandchildren, Scott Berowski of Irondale, MO, Mark Berowski of Smithton, IL, Charlie (Jennifer) Kujawski of Hecker IL, and Jen Kujawski of Waterloo, IL, great-grandchildren, Christopher Berowski, Alex and Allison Berowski, Ashlyn, Kylie and Cadence Kujawski, Layla and Noah Steinbaugh, and many nieces and nephews.

Having a Leap Day birthday was the source of lots of fun times over Mabel’s long life.  Her daughters have had many more birthdays than she did.  Mabel lived to celebrate 25 birthdays; February 29, 2024, would have been her 26th birthday. Mabel was an excellent cook and enjoyed raising beautiful flowers and vegetables.

Memorials may be made to her church, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in New Athens,  Alzheimer’s Association or donor’s choice.

Visitation will be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in New Athens from 9:00 to 11:00 AM on Saturday, December 9, 2023, with funeral services following. Pastor Lyle Buettner will officiate. Burial will be held at Valhalla Cemetery in Belleville, IL.
