WILLISTON, S.C. - Funeral Services for Mr. Ulyssee "Bum" Mitchell will be 1 p.m., Saturday, November 21, 2015 at Ebenezer Baptist Church, with interment to follow in the church cemetery, with Reverend David Williams, Reverend Barmey Glover and Reverend Joe Singleton officiating. Mr. Mitchell was born on March 7, 1933 in Barnwell County to the late Dennis and Willie Mae Cuthberson Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell very peacefully departed this life on Friday, November 13, 2015. He was educated at Rosemary School in Williston, South Carolina. At an early age he joined Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church. "Bum" as he was affectionately called, worked in the dry cleaning business for over fifty years. He worked with M&M Cleaners with which later became Superior Cleaners II in Williston and Bamberg, South Carolina. He took pride in literally making your clothes stand up on their own. He was the best in the business. His true passion in life was farming and raising "hogs". No one could raise hogs like Bum Mitchell. Although he was a quiet man, he earned the respect of those he encountered. He was very expressive in his love for his daughter and his family. We know that heaven is now at even better place, but his physical presence with us will leave an insurmountable void. We find comfort in knowing that he lived his life in a way that we should all aspire, with a kind genuine, loving and honest heart. Bum was preceded in death by his parents; his twin sister, Willie C. Bellinger; his sister, Johnnie Mae Gillion; two brothers, Tracey Mitchell and Terry Mitchell and a loving devoted niece, Delorse "Lois" Mack. He is survived by his daughter, Dorothy "Jean" Scott of Aiken, SC; three sisters, Glenley Abner, Panyse Allen (Arthur) of Williston, SC, and Jarushia Thornton of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, brothers, Cremel (Ethel) Mitchell of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Harry (Emma) Mitchell, Dennis (Rose) Mitchell of Delray Beach, FL and Wyman Mitchell of Williston, SC; one uncle, Deacon Herman (Ruthie) Cuthbertson; a devoted cousin and caretaker, Wilhelmenia Dixon and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
