Obituary of Hyacinth Mitchell
On Dec. 15, 2018 at the age of 81 our precious mother left us suddenly and made her entrance through the pearly gates where she met her Heavenly Father. What a glorious home coming. She is now resting in the arms of Jesus “Absent in the body, present with the Lord”. There she was reunited with our precious brother Aubrey, her parents, her two brothers and other love ones gone before her. What a great reunion. Our mom is finally home, a place where she will feel no pain, shed any more tears and will suffer no more. She is finally at peace. Hyacinth was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She regularly volunteered with the Ladies Auxiliary and the Red Cross. She is predeceased by her son, Aubrey Mitchell; parents, Chesley and Geneva Colbourne; brothers, Ronald (Dorothy) Colbourne and Reginald Colbourne; and brother-in-law, Sterling Strickland. Left to mourn the love of her life, her husband Howard; sons, Ralph (Gaie), Cluney (Gloria), Rodney (Annette), and Ronnie (Joanne); daughters, Nellie (Lloyd) Young, Nina (Cyril) Howse, Bessie (Clarence) Elliott, and Roxanne (Gilbert) Temple. Also left to mourn, sisters, Marion (Chesley) Heath, Joyce (Cyril) Parsons, Annie (Charlie) Heath, and Una Strickland; brothers, Albert (Effie) Colbourne, and Fred (Effie) Colbourne; sister-in-law, Yvonne Colbourne; daughter-in-law, Isabella Mitchell; twenty-three grandchildren, Shane (Carolyn), Mark (Angela), Michael (Angie), Matthew, Tina (Wayne), Terri (Rick), Vanessa (Dan), Bruce, Ashlei, Christopher, April (Scott), Leanne (Paul), Adam, Zachery, Sean (Pamela), Emma, Brenna, Maddison, Alyssa, Courtney (Allan), Brianna and Jane; twenty great-grandchildren, Shealyn, Autum, Angel, Karah, Kaydn, Cameron (Sydney), Cadence, Cullen, Aaron (Jordan), Joshua (Elizabeth), Brittney, Candice, Jessica, Shane, Brianne, Caitline, Maylee, Malakyi, Meeyko, Brady, and future baby boy of granddaughter Courtney; one great-great-grandchild, Grayson AJ Trafford; as well as a large circle of relatives and friends.
Mommy when you left us you took a huge piece of our hearts with you and our lives will never be the same. We lost the most loving and amazing mother and daddy lost the most loving and devoted wife. Your love for your family was unconditional.
