Mary Frances Mitchell
October 20, 1942 – July 27, 2020
Mary Frances Berry Mitchell was called home to the Lord on July 27th, 2020 at the age of 77.
Frances was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, William C. Mitchell, and her brother Paul Brandon Berry Jr. She is survived by her children Mitzi Framel and husband Steve of Conroe, Tx. along with her son Edwin Mitchell and wife Marion of Corpus Christi, Tx. Frances is also survived by her grandchildren Paul Framel and wife Courtney, Chris Framel, Ryan Saam and Kyle Mitchell.
Frances was born in Dallas County on October 20th, 1942 to Paul Brandon Berry Sr. and Christine Smith Berry. She graduated with an Accounting degree from Sam Houston State University, May 1979. She later opened a successful accounting practice, M. Frances Mitchell, C.P.A.
Frances was involved in various organizations; she was an active member of the Rotary Club of Conroe, the Lions Club of Conroe and was a member of the Business Women’s Forum.
Her passion was serving her church, First Presbyterian Church of Conroe and did so in numerous ways. From being a part of the Lydia Women’s Circle, playing her part in the handbell choir to serving as an elder of the church numerous times, Frances held service to the church and the lord near to her heart. She also had the honor of being the Chair of the Building Committee for the current home of First Presbyterian Church which is located on Loop 336.
At the end of the day the largest piece of Frances’s heart was her family, especially her grandsons who lovingly called her “Honey”. The family wishes to thank the excellent caregivers at Village Green, especially her Betty and Trisha.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday August 8th, 2020 at 11:00 am, First Presbyterian Church Conroe located at 2727 N. Loop 336 West. A live video stream of the service will be made available.

Mitzi and Edwin,
Your mom was a dear friend and neighbor. We miss her deeply - her smile, words, visits, shared holidays, and her love. She will be remembered as we enjoyed her. Our lasting treasured memories are the plants she shared, the walks. the talks, the Friday nights dinners, church, Sunday School, meetings, cookies, our weekly Wednesday night Bible Study wine and cheese evenings with Suzie, Diane, Karen, Jackie and others - these will remain etched in our hearts as your mom enjoys her family and friends in heaven...until we join her. Blessings to each of you from both of us.

I will miss Mrs Mitchell! I have so many memories from our family’s camping together to spending Thanksgivings and Christmas together. I don’t think there was a weekend our family’s didn’t see each other as I was growing up. She was so smart, pretty and most of all a loving friend to us! She will always hold a special place in my heart!
We will meet again in Heaven!
