Mable Louise Sejnoha was born on Friday, May 2, 1919 at Tyndall, South Dakota to Charles W. “Will” and Pauline (Kiehlbach) Ferguson.  She attended country school and graduated from Tyndall High School in 1936. Mable received her secretarial training at St. Cloud Business College, then lived and worked in St. Paul, Minnesota. She worked primarily at the Farmer’s Union Central Exchange and also for a coal company. She returned to Tyndall in the early 1940s and worked as a legal secretary for Ray Post. Mable was united in marriage to Emil J. Sejnoha on June 23, 1955 at Tyndall. Emil and Mable lived and worked on the family farm 8 miles north and 2½ miles west of Tyndall. In 1970, she once again began working outside the home as a legal secretary for Elmer Gemar, and later as a secretary and receptionist for Royal Koch Insurance.  Following her husband’s death in February of 1987, Mable moved into Tyndall.  She was a member of the Tyndall Presbyterian Church where she faithfully published the church newsletter and women’s fellowship book for many years. Prior to her marriage, she was a member of the Business and Professional Women. In later years, she was a longtime board member and treasurer for the Czech National Cemetery Assoc. She enjoyed quilting, and other hobbies included knitting and crocheting. She moved to Yankton in April of 2007 to be near her son, Joseph. She lived first at Pine Lane (now Autumn Winds), later at the Avera Yankton Care Center, and died on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at the Avera Sister James Care Center in Yankton at the age of 94 years, 7 months and 3 days.
Mable is survived by her son, Joseph W. Sejnoha of Yankton; three nieces: Rose Novak of Tyndall, Helen Hovorka of Tyndall, and Evelyn Schuch of Sisseton, SD; a nephew, Adolph Joseph “Joe” Sejnoha of Yankton; and several extended family members.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles W. “Will” and Pauline Ferguson, her husband, Emil J. Sejnoha, a brother, William Ferguson, a nephew, Tim Ferguson, and two nieces, Emma Jones and Libby Hamberger.
