My sympathy and condolences to the Mitchell family for the loss of your mom.
I remember her when she was secretary at Clear Lake school. She was always so nice and she cared about the students. I had a rough junior year and she always had the right words and so kind to me. I will never forget Mrs Mitchell. 😢

Aunt Bev was my "Most Fun Aunt". She would tell stories about how my Mom and Dad met and insisted that she was her parents "favorite" since they stopped having children after she was born as she "was the perfect one". I loved to play cards with her and when ever we were together we did so. She was a predictable Christmas Cookie Baker, storing them away in her freezer. We had many memorable camping trips together. I did not know until recently that she was an avid puzzle "affectionado". She will be missed by all of her friends and family as well of all of the organizations that she contributed time and effort to.
We will miss you Aunt Bev, now you can be without pain. Just remember Heaven is a Non-Smoking Venue!!! Carlene (Older Than Dirt Niece)

Dear Mitchell Family, All my love and sympathy to you at this hard time. Bev was quite the gal to say the least. I think the last time I saw her was sitting on a folding chair outside Nilssen's store selling poppies! She always seemed to have a handful ready to sell. I think that myself, and almost every student that lined the halls of Clear Lake high school would agree that she was much more than a school secretary that somehow put up with Mr. G!! She was a friend, a Mom, or someone that seemed to care if you didn't think anyone else did. So I say, "Thank-you" for sharing her with us. Memories are a wonderful thing. And I know when I think of her, I will always smile. xoxox
