Our beloved sister Leanora Mitchell transitioned into eternal rest at her home in Dothan, Alabama on January 25, 2020. 

Leanora was born to Bishop Walter Mitchell, Sr., and Mother Loraine Mitchell on September 15, 1955. 

Following graduation from Graceville High School, Leanora joined the United States Air Force.  She travelled the world with the United States Air Force and received an Air Traffic Controller certification from Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi.  She worked many years as a proof reader with the Dewey Ballantine Law Firm in New York City, New York. 

Leanora was preceded in death by her parents, the late Bishop Walter Mitchell, Sr. and Mother Loraine Mitchell; and her siblings Loretta, Effie, Samuel Earl, Gloria Jean, David Lee, Walter Jr., Willie, Renor L, W.T., Rosa Bell, Lila, Ida B., and Elmira.

She leaves to mourn her passing and to cherish her memories, five brothers:   Isaiah of Detroit, Michigan, Wayne and Jesse Mitchell, both of Dothan, Alabama, Tony Mitchell of Daleville, Alabama, and Vander (Ann) of Century, Florida; four sisters:  Marie (J. Elliott) Crowder of Pensacola, Florida, Mary Mack of Ozark, Alabama,  Dyann (Dewane) Morland of Enterprise, Alabama, and Mary Bradley of Century, Florida; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives, and friends.



“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you;

you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”

The Good News: God's love will tenderly nurture you as a mother nurtures a child.

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,

for those who are called according to his purpose.”
