A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Mrs. Cabe enjoyed spending time with her family.  She kept a beautiful garden and preferred to be busy whether sewing, canning homegrown vegetables, or preparing family dinners that attracted extended family every Sunday after church.  Faithful in all endeavors, she retired from Calvin Klein after 25 years.  She treasured her monthly breakfast with the Abbeville High Class of 1955 Breakfast Club.  Mrs. Cabe loved her church Rocky River Presbyterian where she worshipped for over 60 years.

Westberry (Paul) of Houston, TX; a daughter-in-law, Harriet Cabe of Abbeville; two sisters, Nancy Britt (Russell) of North Augusta, SC and Peggy McBride (Robert) of Elberton, GA; six grandchildren, Michael Bull (Jessica), Joel Bull, Rachel Marchant (Phillip), Michael Westberry, Elizabeth Aupperle and Warren Snow; and six great-grandchildren, Mason, Cabe, Elijah, Austin, Alice and Caston.

The family will receive friends at 1:00PM – 2:00PM on Friday, September 20, 2019 in the fellowship hall of Rocky River Presbyterian Church.  Funeral services will begin at 2:00PM in the sanctuary of Rocky River Presbyterian Church with Rev.
