Roscoe Reeby Mitchell

Born 5-1-24 in Custer Township, MN

Died 2-24-16 in Seattle, WA

Roscoe was one of 8 children born to Roscoe and Ida Mitchell. He married Irene (Almhjeld) on February 24, 1943. They enjoyed almost 63 years of marriage before her passing in February 2006. He rejoined his beautiful bride on what would have been their 73rd wedding anniversary.

Roscoe was a proud member of the US Army Air Corps in WWII, Bomber Group 487, stationed in Lavenham, England. He was a very involved member of the Masons, attending meetings regularly and serving in many positions. He was also an honored member of the VFW. Roscoe has been an active member of the Maple Leaf Lutheran Church in North Seattle for many years. The last 4 years he has also enjoyed his "family" at the Victoria Apartments in Lake City. Roscoe retired after 34 years with the Boeing Company as an Electronic Technician.

Roscoe leaves behind his two sons, Rick (Sue) and Mike, his two grandsons David (Kristyn and special great-granddaughter Irene) and Conrad (Kelli, Ronan, Nora), 2 brothers, 1 sister, and many other beloved family members and friends.

Special thanks to the nurses/staff on the 17th floor of Virginia Mason, and to the nurses/staff at Foss. Your compassion has made this journey just a little bit easier.

Thanks, dad, for your kindness, love, generosity, and guidance. We love you so much and will miss you every day.

A memorial will be held at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church, 10005 32nd Ave NE, Seattle, on March 5th at 1:00pm. Donations may be made to the Royal Arch Masons Children's Heart Foundation, PO Box 223, Marysville, WA, 98270.
