Sally Ann Mitchell, 71, known to family and friends as "Sam", died Wednesday, August 7, 2013, after a brief illness. Those with her at the end fancy she reclaimed her venerated freedom with a grey horse, a guitar and a beloved dog, Molly.
Hers is the tale of a life well lived: She was born February 19, 1942, in Cincinnati, Ohio to Julia Cartwright and Mark L. Mitchell. Her family moved to Florida in 1947. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Florida in 1963 then jettisoned off to join the Austin music scene of the 1960s.
Ms. Mitchell raced sports cars and made music with famous people. She worked on the Alaskan pipeline, showed prize-winning Afghans and rode quarter horses in reining competition. Her hobby was her life; her life, a bucket list.
Ms. Mitchell leaves behind a sister, Elizabeth; brother, Mark; step-brother, Patric Leedom; a corral of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; and a trail of broken hearts stretching from Florida to Texas.
A memorial service will be held at the home of Elizabeth Mitchell on August 20, 2013, 4:00 PM.
