Rosalie M. Mitchell

Rosalie M. Mitchell, 81, of 824 Franklin St., Ogdensburg, passed away at 12:08 a.m. June 12, 2016 at her home.

There will be no funeral service or calling hours. Her body will be cremated. Arrangements are with the LaRue & Pitcher Funeral Home in Ogdensburg.

Rosalie was born July 6, 1934 in Buffalo, N.Y., the daughter of George and Minnie (Hopkins) Ince. The family later moved to Alexandria Bay, N.Y., a place Rosalie held close to her heart. The family relocated to Ogdensburg where her father worked Immigration & Customs. Rosalie was a graduate of Ogdensburg Free Academy where she excelled both academically and in the areas of music and drama.

She married Raymond E. Mitchell on April 21, 1955 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. Ray died June 6, 2000.

She is survived by six children, Larry Mitchell and his wife Debbie of Ogdensburg, Paul Mitchell and his wife Dawn of Canton; Julie McLear and her husband Ken of Lisbon; Dee Dee Mitchell of Joshua, Texas, Jim Mitchell and his companion Trina Anderson of Ogdensburg, Philip Mitchell and his wife LeeAnn of Ogdensburg; 12 grandchildren, Andrew Mitchell and his wife Stacie of Ogdensburg, Brian Mitchell and his wife Trina of Ogdensburg, Eric Mitchell of Ogdensburg, Sara Wright of Birmingham, Ala., Gerri Marie Wright of Spanish Fort, Ala., Matthew McLear of Lisbon, Steven McLear and his wife Dana of Lisbon, Leah Hutto and her husband Zach of Joshua, Texas, Stacie Saulter of Joshua, Texas, Mackenzie Mitchell of Ogdensburg, Alison Mitchell of Ogdensburg, and Elizabeth Mitchell of Ogdensburg. She is also survived by 12 great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her brother, Maurice Victor Ince, and her beloved dog Baby.

Rosalie worked numerous jobs throughout her lifetime. She was last employed as an admitting clerk in the emergency room at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center in Ogdensburg where she retired many years ago.  Rosalie enjoyed doing the daily crossword puzzle and Jumble, gardening and watching Dancing with the Stars. She loved parades and fireworks and always looked forward to the annual Seaway Festival event, including the Battle of the Bands competition.

Rosalie’s door was always open to family and friends and a visit often resulted in a home cooked meal.

Contributions in her memory may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley, 6805 US Hwy. 11, Potsdam, NY 13676.
