Re obituary for “Elizabeth ‘Bette’ Mitchell, widow of ‘Tiger Tom’ Mitchell,” Free Press Nov. 16-18 edition:

Elizabeth “Bette” Mitchell, the widow of “Tiger Tom,” has now gone on to join him. They were married for more than 50 years. They really cared for one another. This was true devotion at its finest, even after all this time. The couple are now smiling and holding hands in heaven.

Thanks Free Press for doing an article on this beautiful couple. I must admit I knew some things about them, but you gave us a wealth of information on this couple. Those who read the story on this couple were very enlightened about their life. They seemed to be very supportive of one another, even in their later years. This type of dedication should be an inspiration to us all.

For this couple, the race on this earth is now over and they both did a superlative job. Thanks for the memories. Those whose lives you touched will remember for a lifetime. It’s now time to seek your rewards in heaven.
