Sister Mitchell is a wonderful person. I was fortunate to be able to be in the Brigham City 17th ward with her and Elvin. I always thought so much of her and her strong testimony she would share quite frequently. She is a wonderful example.
Aunt Marinda was a special spirit. We have such fond memories of her, especially as children. We wish to express our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. May God bless each of you.
Our sincere Love, Marion, Melanie, Rick and Mat Bradford.

What a special Lady!
Despite having her own four children, she took on the rearing of orphaned relatives, all the while working as a nurse full time.....
Marinda collected antiques way before it became a craze to do so... so had a house full of collectibles that made the living room a showcase....
How many women had the gumption to get scuba certified with her teenage daughter ? Marinda did!
Good hearted, happy laughing Marinda loved her kids so much. The world and everyone will miss her dearly. Rest in Peace dear Lady.
Love Barb's friend Lynn
