Yvonne Rosch "Dixie" Mitchell Obituary
Memorial services celebrating the life and memory of Yvonne Rosch "Dixie" Mitchell will be held at Morgan Funeral Home, located at 2605 S. Washington in Forrest City, on Saturday, June 9, 2018. Visitation will be between 10 and 10:30 a.m., followed by a memorial service from 10:30 until noon.
Dixie was born on April 11, 1948, in New Orleans, La., and passed away while vacationing on April 19, 2018, in Gimsbach, Germany.
She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Rose Marie and Thomas Harold Rosch Sr.; her brother, Thomas Harold Rosch III and her sister, Rose Juliet Pemberton.
Dixie is survived by her husband of 36 years, Don Mitchell; her sisters, Karen Rosch of Hot Springs, Donna Haefele of Metairie, La., and Gayle Juan of Pearl River, La.; a Stepdaughter and son-in-law, Crystal and Jonathan Posey; two grandsons, Matthew and Avery Posey of Jonesboro; nephews Trey and Chris Rosch, grand-nieces Katelyn, Kristina and Arianna Rosch, and one grand-nephew, Declan Rosch, plus many nieces, nephews, cousins and assorted relatives children, too numerous to mention.
Dixie, a retired telephone engineer and community service advocate, actively volunteered her time and energy working with CASA, Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and in many area community theatres. She also enjoyed singing karaoke, performing in commercials, and watching B&W movies or "gray" movies as her nieces called them. Dixie also enjoyed making people laugh. Her humorous take on everyday life always left her listeners in stitches.
The Mitchell Family requests that, in lieu of flowers, please consider making a small donation in honor of Dixie's memory to one of her favorite charities: CASA, Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, or your local church. And please say a prayer for all the members of our Armed Forces. They deserve it.
