Mable Brinkley Guthrie, 88, passed away on July 28, 2019. She was born Mable Ruth Brinkley in Milner, Lamar County, Georgia on September 30, 1930 to Barney Blue Brinkley and Beulah Bessie Jordan Brinkley.

Mable is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Mary Frances Brinkley Fordham; daughter, Carol Ann Smith Brown and grandson, Charles Morgan Berry.

Mable was a native of Lamar County, Georgia and raised her daughter, Carol Ann Smith in Barnesville. She was secretary to the Presidents of Tift College and Georgia Baptist Children’s Home. She was also one of the founding consultants for Tupperware where she won top sales awards. Mable danced into Phillip Guthrie’s heart and they married in 1991. She retired from the City of Snellville’s Parks and Recreation and they moved to their mountain home in Habersham County. Together they enjoyed live music and concerts by Phillip and his Shadow Mountain Band. Mable was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Clarkesville, Georgia where she sang in the senior choir and taught Sunday School. She enjoyed painting landscapes, playing dominos with friends, walking through the garden, crocheting baby blankets and she especially loved butterflies. “Miss” Mable was an avid storyteller and loved entertaining those young and old, especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Phillip Wayne Guthrie; sister, Bess Brinkley Gaddy Kelly; granddaughters, Melody Berry Healan (Joseph), Holly Elizabeth Berry; great-grandchildren, Caitlin Leigh Haynes, Trade Berry, Annabel Ruth Haynes, Aiden Berry, William Berry Haynes, Addison Berry, Talon Berry and Tiger Berry; and nephews, nieces and cousins. 

Mable Guthrie was known for her feisty sense of humor, gift of gab, love of dancing and she never met a stranger! She will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved her. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 1PM at The Guthrie Home in Clarkesville, Georgia. For additional information, please contact Melody Healan, 770-733-9613 or
