David Wesley Mitchell

April 29, 1930 — December 25, 2023


David (Dave) Wesley Mitchell, Age 93, passed away on December 25,

2023 surrounded by his loving family.

Dave was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur & Margretha, brother

Warren, sister Betty Gay Quinn, and son Wesley. He is survived by his wife

of 72 years, Jinny, and their children, Mary-Lynn, Sharon and her children

Emily Bullard (Bryan), Meredith Cinman (Pearce) and Mitchell Brexler, and

David (Catherine) and their daughter Lora Mitchell (Alex Skirbst). Dave &

Jinny enjoyed 5 great-grandchildren: Emma Grace & Catie Ann Bullard,

and Jackson, Sam, & Addie Cinman.

Dave devotedly worked in his family business, the Mitchell Dairy, until

1958 (serving in the Coast Guard 1951-1953), followed by a career as a

financial advisor. During those years, he was a PTA leader, Sunday School

teacher and MYF counselor. After retirement, he served as a retirement

home companion, an elementary school Big Brother, and volunteer to

church ministries. Dave had an insatiable thirst for knowledge. He wrote

poetry, played chess with worldwide friends, and savored nature. Above

all, he treasured his family and gifted them his own love of life.
