On Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022, J.W. (Jay) Mitchell went home to be with the Lord. He was an avid gardener who loved to share his harvest with his neighbors and community. Jay is survived by his wife Vivian, his son Robert, his daughter Bethany, his brother Donald Mitchell, and his sister Mavis Freeman. Jay was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Mozelle Mitchell and his brothers Buford, Hubert, Harrel, and Ronald. Rather than a funeral or memorial service, the family will gather to celebrate his life in a private ceremony to honor his wishes. He is loved and missed by all who knew him.
