Kathleen Ann Mitchell was born on November 24, 1956, to Eugene Aanerud and Antoinette Mattoni in Tonawanda, New York. She entered eternal peace on February 15, 2021, in Garland, Texas after a courageous battle against multiple medical issues and complications. Our Savior called her home from pain and suffering which she will no longer have to endure.
Kathleen graduated high school in San Diego and went on to enlist in the United States Navy where she served until she received an honorable discharge in March 1978. Fate led to the path of Hank and Kathy's lives crossing. A friendship progressed to a relationship, and the two married on June 10, 1983. Kathleen was a compassionate and caring person who often put care and concerns of others above her own.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Eugene Aanerud and Antoinette Mattoni; and her stepfather, Joe Rabey, MCPO USN who entered her childhood life when he and Antoinette wed. Those left to cherish lasting memories include her husband, Henry (Hank) Mitchell; son, Damien (Keri); daughter, Alesha; granddaughters, Elliana and Everly; sisters: Denise Kaiser (Ed), Michelle Flach (Bob), Mary Aarnerud, and Sandra Aanerud Quam; brother, Eugene Aanerud; stepsons: Rick, Jai, and Byron; step-grandchildren: Brittany, Adrian, and Keira; great-grandson, Blake; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends. Kathleen will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
