Ms. Mitchell was born in Campbell, WI, LaCrosse County, to Eugene and Vivian Bernd, and had 7 seven siblings. Ms. Mitchell passed peacefully in her sleep at the age of 82 after a long illness, in San Antonio, TX.

Ms. Mitchell moved to Houston, Texas as a youth, and she married Ben Mitchell, Jr. (deceased) on June 9, 1957, and had 5 children: Shane Mitchell (Daisy), Kathryn Mitchell-Murphy (Dave), Cody Mitchell (Desiree), Anjeanette Mitchell (deceased) and Chad Mitchell (Oanh). Ms. Mitchell had 10 Grandchildren and 15 Great Grandchildren.

Ms. Mitchell was creative; she loved to craft, paint, and quilt.  She enjoyed writing, especially  poetry.  She was patriotic, spiritual, resourceful, and fun-loving, and is often remembered for her practical jokes.  Her one great teaching was:  “Don’t let a bad situation define who you are.”  Ms. Mitchell was a Daughter of the Republic of Texas through her father’s side, as a descendant of James Bonham.  She was loved by many, and remembered by  her nieces and nephews as a second mother to them.  May her insightful teachings, and her spirit of giving and forgiving live on through her descendants.
