I think it was due to health issues. I could be wrong. Boescher probably confirm if that was the reason.

Actually, I think the writers were just trying to focus on the three friends and Mabel didn't like the fact that she was being rather left out. So she left.

Well, I heard that she left the show because she was tired of playing the stereotyped "single black mother"

Actually it had to do with Mabel being difficult on the original show & her behind the scenes problems with the original network & producers of that show. Up until then, her health problems were not that serious. This was told to me by the cast a few years ago when I got the chance to meet them in LA. Hope that answered your question!
