Don’t cry over spilled milk. Legendary milkshake maker Mabel Wheat would not want tears from her fan club. The 93-year old passed away in Cooper on Wednesday, April 22 in Birchwood Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Mabel Wheat spent over 60 years behind the vintage counter as a milkshake maker for Miller’s Ole Soda Fountain on the corner of the Square in Cooper, Texas dishing out life advice and cheering for the Texas Rangers along with her famous “Purple Cows and Redhots.”

Delta County has been full of the holiday spirit. Santa has been very busy checking his list and visiting many places in the area. He has been a highlight in parades, breakfasts, at businesses, churches and on Square.
