Mildred Hamilton Mitchell Wadmalaw Island, SC - Mildred Hamilton Mitchell, age 78, born in Cross, South Carolina, and raised in Charleston, SC, was called home to the Lord on June 24, 2020. Mildred was born January 10, 1942. Survived by her loving husband, Benjamin, and three children: Wanda Violet Mitchell, Benjamin Mitchell II, and Keith Alexander Mitchell (Kazembe); daughter-in-law, Kathyrn Anne Mitchell; her precious grandson, Miles Huxley Copeland Mitchell, and a host of brothers, sisters, nieces nephews and friends. Mildred was a proud graduate of Burke High School and remained an active member of Burke Class of 1961. She moved to New York City and alongside Benjamin raised her three children in Harlem. She worked as a patient unit clerk at New York University Medical Center for 38 years. After she retired she served as an usher and missionary for New Bethlehem Church on Wadmalaw Island, SC, and was a lifetime member of the National Council of Negro Women Bethune Leonard Section.

My heart is breaking. Mrs Mitchell was one of a kind. She was always sweet and upbeat. She took care of the staff at Fresenius Kidney Care, Charlie Hall. I know they will all miss her. The world has lost a wonderful woman. Heaven has gained an angel.

Sleep In Heavenly Peace
" Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know." John 14:1-4 KJV
