Mitchell, Shirley Ann - Santa Rosa  
Shirley Ann Mitchell July 17, 1927 ~ June 18, 2016 Resident of Santa Rosa A wonderful lady left the world on Sat. June 18. Mom was an intelligent, witty, sassy, and humorous friend, mother, grandmother and wife. She traveled the world with Dad living in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Trinidad, California, Miami, and Perth, as well as vacationing to all parts of the world. Together they built their dream house in Lake Almanor where they could fish, play golf, and sit on their deck while watching beautiful sunsets and hearing the lake lapping against the bank. As a family, we spent so many summers there making unforgettable memories. After too many snowy winters, they purchased a home in Nipomo on the central coast. We would visit them at Easter and Thanksgiving and enjoy the golf, Oceano Melodrama, the beaches and many pre-scheduled art activities that G-ma had planned for us. After Dad's health issues, they relocated to Santa Rosa. Mom made more neighborhood friends there in 5 years than most people would make in 30. She played "Words with Friends" until a week before she died and routinely beat her opponents. She was an artist, incredible knitter, avid book reader and played a mean game of bridge. She was our mentor, sense of reason and the best phone call to make when we were feeling down. She left the world the way she wanted, peacefully. She will be in our hearts and prayers always. Shan is survived by loving husband of 67 years, Bob. Children; Heather (Michael) Cruciano, Bruce Mitchell, and Jennifer (Ron) Schaefer. She was predeceased by daughter Rebecca Meshna. Grandchildren; Micaela (Kai) Kliegl, Chiara (Ray) Hutchison, Tyler Schaefer, Kyle Meshna, and Tori Schaefer. Great grandchildren: Ensley and Quinn Kliegl. Services will be held July 9 at 12 noon at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, 500 Robinson Rd. Sebastopol. We invite remembrances to Shan's favorite charities: The Living Room, Redwood Gospel Mission, Final Passages or a charity of your choice. View the online memorial for Shirley Ann Mitchell
