CATHERINE MITCHELL Obituary
Catherine M. Mitchell, 81, of Tunkhannock, died Friday morning, July 26, 2019, at Moses Taylor Hospital, Scranton.

Born in Meshoppen on May 29, 1938, she was the daughter of the late William and Helen Fallett Mitchell.

Catherine is a graduate of Tunkhannock High School and Keystone Junior College. Catherine received her degree as a medical secretary from Keystone Junior College, and she worked for Dr. Arthur Davenport until he retired.

She truly loved them and they were a very large part of her life.

She was preceded in death by a sister Joy E. Mitchell.
