She spent her last days enjoying her family and playing her favorite dominoes game, Mexican Train. In addition to her parents, Rosa and Wiley Compton, she was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Doyle W. Whitehead and their son, Wiley Houston Whitehead; 1 sister; 2 brothers. Left to mourn her passing are her son, Doyle L. Whitehead and his wife Ginger; daughter, Judy Whitehead Parris and her husband, Loren; 4 granddaughters; 4 great-granddaughters; 5 great-grandsons; 1 great-great-grandson, her little love, "Benny Boy." She is also survived by one sister-in-law and friend, Betty Compton; many other extended family members and friends whom she loved dearly. Mable was a feisty little woman who was very caring and always willing to help others. She loved her church, Keeble’s Chapel, her family, traveling, reading, and Butter Pecan ice cream. Her Kindle and tablet were her constant companions. She was loved by so many and will be sadly missed but, we take comfort in knowing that she was a child of God and looking forward to her Heavenly home. Due to Covid-19, Mable has requested no services be held because she doesn't "want to take a chance on anybody getting sick because of me." Mable will be entombed beside her husband at Grandview Mausoleum. Memorials may be made to Caris Hospice, 10651 Coward Mill Rd., Knoxville TN, 37931.
