She also had the privilege of cooking for the Mayor of Camden, SC and her guests at the Jazz Festival in Charleston, SC. Her pies, cookies, and cakes, especially her coconut cakes, were legendary.
Left to cherish her memories are her children, Lottie Sheppard of Monroe, N.C., Samuel Mitchell of Oxford, N.C., Michael Mitchell (Karen) of Lagrangeville, N.Y.; siblings, Bernice Moultrie, Andrew Richardson, Anise Smith, Shirley Bethea; grandchildren, Nicole Mitchell and Michelle Dawkins; great-grandchildren, Savannah Mitchell and Ernesto Dawkins and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by a son, Robbie Mitchell; her husband Robert Mitchell, and siblings John Richardson, Mackey Richardson, Benny Richardson and Ruth Crim.
