Dot was one of the sweetest, selfless souls on earth. She never failed to be kind- even under different circumstances. I remember her laugh well and I hear it through my daughter, Kayla. I see Dot through my daughter - the beauty and kindheartedness that she has passed onto several generations....I am sure- including Kayla. The last time I saw her was at Frye (FRMC), where we both were employed, the love in her heart and beaming from her eyes I will never forget...we hugged and I will always cherish her being in my life. I am sure all who had the blessing of knowing her feels the same way!

Please accept my sincerest condolences to the entire family; while it is a great loss on earth, it is a wondrous gain in heaven.

To the family of Dottie Mitchell, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet wife and mother. Every time I saw her, she always had a smile on her face! She was always giving me a hug and asking how I was. Such a genuine caring soul. Knowing that she has stepped over to that next dimension helps to heal the sadness. May God surround each of you with His arms of peace. Draw close together and hold to your memories.
