Margaret Rose "Marg" Mitchell - 82, Truro. It is with a heavy heart we announce that Margaret Rose "Marg" Mitchell passed away peacefully on Friday, February 18, 2022 at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro.

She was the wife of Ronald Frank "Ron" Mitchell, sharing over 62 loving years together. Margaret lived life to the fullest and on her own terms.  She touched the lives of so many, leaving behind fond memories of this courageous and funny woman. She cherished the roles bestowed upon her life of daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.

She was affiliated with St. David’s United Church in Bible Hill. She worked as a clerk with the Federal Government, where she would take off the summers to spend with her four children, sharing her love of the water and teaching them all to swim. She earned the name of "Action Nanny" with a carefree spirit, seizing every opportunity to play with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. An avid sewer, she loved to sew quilts for all of them.

One of her greatest joys was the many adventures that she took with Ron, the love of her life, travelling extensively together and often with family members. She would write about their travels and often wrote poetry and short stories. Many will remember times spent around the table playing cards with her or watching the Blue Jays play.  She loved the piano, either playing herself or listening to others.

She is survived by her husband, Ron; children, Steven (Lynn) Mitchell, Ottawa; Vernon (Michele) Mitchell, Stewiacke; Vincent (Andrea) Mitchell, Lantz; Pamela (Shane) Sullivan, Bible Hill; grandchildren, Andrew Sutherland (Courtney), Gregory Sullivan (Denise), Jessica Sullivan (Matthew), Christopher Mitchell (Emily), Stephen MacDonald, Brennan Sullivan (Tenysha), Garrett (Sherry) Mitchell, Matthew Mitchell,  Devin Mitchell (Victoria), Dakota Mitchell, Jessica Bedford; great grandchildren, Makayla Sullivan, Dominic MacDonald, Madison Sullivan, Jade MacDonald, Jaxon Mitchell; siblings, Doris Leblanc, Louise (Gerald) MacKenzie; sister-in-law, Dorothy Dean; several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Samuel and Blanche (Kennedy) Frizzell; siblings, Warren, Frank, Bessie, Audrey, David.

The family would like to thank the Palliative Care Team at Colchester East Hants Health Centre for their loving care.

Graveside service and interment will be 1 p.m., Saturday, May 14, 2022, at Bible Hill Cemetery, 41 Warren Drive, Bible Hill, April Hart officiating. If so desired, donations in Marg’s memory to QEII Foundation or Bible Hill Cemetery are welcomed.
