PATRICIA AGNES MITCHELL (published on September 17, 2011)

PATRICIA AGNES MITCHELL (nee SWEENEY) Mom, Gram and Great-Gramma passed away at the age of 94 on September 13, 2011 at the Grace Hospital with her son John at her side. Mom was born January 7, 1917 in Winnipeg to John Sweeney and Agnes Dickson. She was the youngest of five children who have all predeceased her (John, Edward, Flo and Fran). She grew up in the North End on Bannerman and later moved to Brock Street in River Heights where she attended Kelvin High School. Her father took a position with the Leader Post in Regina in 1936 and moved the family to Far Away House on Lake Wascana. It was here in Regina that Mom took her Nursing training. She then served Overseas as a Nursing Sister in the Second World War. She was stationed in France. After the war, Mom married John (Jack) Mitchell and resided in Bengough, SK before moving to Winnipeg in 1948. Dad predeceased Mom in 1996. Mom and Dad had one daughter Trenna and two sons, John (Eileen), Bob (Debbie); seven grandsons, Kevin (Lori) and Rob Kanski, Danny, Gord, Brian, Cameron and Graeme (Ashley) Mitchell; and two great-grandchildren, Leah and Tyler. Mom was a caregiver for much of her life, always helping others. She was a very tenacious and determined woman who overcame many health issues over the years, especially latterly. Mom had a strong desire to live and she especially enjoyed time with family and at the lake, still swimming at 89. She loved to bake and will always be remembered for her cookies, especially the chocolate chip and her slices. Mom - we will miss you! The end came so quickly. It is with much sorrow that we didn't say goodbye. In accordance with Mom's wishes, she will be cremated and there will not be a service. You are finally free to fly, Mom.
