July 13, 1929 - March 22, 2020
Patrice Nell Mitchell passed away on March 22, 2020 at Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, Utah. She was born July 13, 1929 in Seminary, Mississippi to Floyd C. Page and Dagmar M. Speed. She eloped with Charles N. Mitchell and they were married in Laurel, Mississippi on September 1, 1946. After two crop failures her husband joined the Air Force and after his service with the Berlin airlift, she joined him in Vienna, Austria which was then 110 miles inside the Soviet Zone. The base where her husband worked was completely surrounded by the Russians. With the Cold War heating up in 1951, she and their only son were sent home where Charles joined her as their daughter was born in Mississippi. They were then stationed in Texas, Kansas, New York, Florida, California and Germany (twice) before her husband retired in 1970. She then went back to school and became a Registered Nurse and worked in California and Hattiesburg, Mississippi where she retired. She enjoyed music, gardening and genealogy before moving to Provo, Utah in 2018 where her son could provide assistance for doctor visits and other activities. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and she and her husband were married for time and eternity in the Bern, Switzerland Temple in 1962. Her husband passed away in 2016. She is survived by her son Patrick Neil Mitchell of Provo, Marilyn Jan Jurgensen (Jon Mark Jurgensen) of Corona, California and five grandchildren; nineteen great grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, a sister and two brothers and was proud of her long life. While her dying wish was to have a large funeral, the present pandemic is preventing that. The family will have a small service on March 26, 2020 in Draper, Utah followed by a graveside service at the Speed Family Cemetery in Seminary, Mississippi on March 30, 2020. After the coronavirus emergency is over, the family plans for a celebration of her life that is more in line with her final wishes. The family wishes to thank the staff at Utah valley Hospital as well as the personnel at Cove Point Retirement home for making her final days on the Earth as pleasant as possible. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.serenityfhs.com as she will be missed. However, she is no doubt enjoying a wonderful reunion with the love of her life as well as her other family members and previously departed loved ones on the other side of our current reality.
