It is with much sorrow that the family of Anadel Gable shares the news of her passing.  Anadel Edmiston Gable, a longtime resident of Pleasanton, Kan., passed away peacefully on Feb. 7, 2022, at Highland Meadows Health and Rehab Center in Rockwall, Texas. She was born in Walker, Mo., on Nov. 5, 1931. She was married to Frank Gable, who passed away in 2001, for more than 40 years. She lived in Pleasanton for more than 50 years.

Anadel was an active member of many organizations over the years, including Cub Scouts, PTA, card clubs and church. Though this brought her much joy, she reveled most in visiting with family and others she deeply loved. She took much pride in rearing her two boys and lavishing love on her grandchildren and could frequently be found at the local coffee shop, huddled with her dearest friends. Later in life, she suffered from the effects of dementia and moved to Texas, but even when she could not remember family names and other details, she longed to be home in Pleasanton with her beloved friends.

Anadel is survived by her children, Mac and wife Amy, of Heath, Texas, and F.P. and wife Stephanie, of Magnolia, Texas; six grandchildren, Daniel, Paige, Payton, Christian, Jillian and Jaden; and eight great-grandchildren.

Celebration of Anadel’s life will be held at a graveside service for family and friends at Pleasanton Cemetery at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, 2022. A gathering of family and friends will be held beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday evening, Feb. 24, at the Pleasanton Community Center. Online condolences can be left at
