Mabel Quorn Spokane


Mabel (Raley) Quorn, Spokane, celebrates her 100th birthday today.

She was born March 8, 1898, in McBee, S.C., and moved to Eastern Washington in 1944.

She and Alfred B. Quorn married March 23, 1945. He died in 1972.

Quorn was a bookkeeper, and a proof reader for school annuals. “But first, she was a wife and homemaker,” said her daughter, Mabel Greene, of Wenatchee.

She has four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Quorn attributes her long life to “good stock.”
