Obituary for Phylis Annie Mitchell

Phylis Annie Mitchell
Passed away peacefully at Garden City Manor in St. Catharines on September 5, 2018 in her 92nd year after a long illness. Born in Sandwich, Ontario on April 27th, 1927 to John MacDonald Scott and Charlotte Penn, she was the eldest of three siblings. In 1945 she married Victor Eugene Smith. They were married 13 years before his tragic death in 1958. In 1962 she married again. She and Capt. George Melville Mitchell were married 44 years until his death in 2006. In addition to her children Bob Mitchell, Sharon Carl and her husband Sheldon, Laura Scott and her husband Randy, she is survived by her grandchildren Tammy, Madeleine, Melissa, and Shelley. She is also survived by great-grandchildren Paige, Oliver and Rosalie, sister Lucille Scott as well as many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. Phylis was predeceased in death by both husbands, an infant son, daughters Sandra Mitchell (2003) and Judith MacGregor (2013), daughter-in-law Verna Mitchell (2018) and brother Walter Scott (2016). Phylis happily spent her life as a homemaker. She volunteered as class mother and in the library at A.K. Wigg Elementary School in Fonthill when her children were young. She was also a Sunday school teacher for many years at Pelham Friends Church. She loved her job as a homecare worker, caring for seniors in their homes and continuing to care for them long after they had moved into nursing homes. In her spare time she kept busy gardening, quilting, sewing, crocheting, baking cakes for AA and organizing coffee and tea for the Niagara Old Tyme Fiddlers Association’s monthly fiddle club meetings. Mom’s greatest joy in life was taking care of others, both family and friends. Instead of donations, we ask that you perform a random act of kindness in her memory. The family would also like to thank the staff of Garden City Manor for their care and compassion while Mom was in their care over the past few years. At Phylis’s request, cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation or service. A private family interment will take place at Hillside Cemetery in Ridgeville, Ontario, at a future date. Online condolences may be placed at
