January 30, 2016

Mary Lois Willis Mitchell, age 85, of Trussville, (formerly of Russellville) went to her heavenly home on Saturday, January 30, 2016. She went peacefully in her sleep, holding her daily devotional.

Mary was one of seven children, born to Floyd and Elizabeth Fanny Modenia Willis April 11, 1930. She married the love of her life, Roy Cecil Mitchell, in 1948. She adored each and every one of her many family members and friends, and they adored her. The world lost a beautiful lady, beautiful both inside and out, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
