Margaret Jeanette Wright Mitchell went to be with her Lord and loved ones on Saturday morning, April 22, 2017.

She was born on July 25, 1928 to Robert and Gertrude Wright in Fairbanks, TX. Margaret was the 5th born of 8 children. Ethelene, Norma, Flodene, Ann, Billie, Ellen and brother, Bobby, all preceded her in death. She was the last survivor of the original Wright clan.

Margaret was married to Travis Mitchell on June 1, 1946 after 2 months of courtship! She lost Travis to cancer in 2011, and their 7 year old son, Bob in 1956.
