Kathryn Mitchell passed away midmorning on May 10th, 2021 at home.
Kathryn was born in Sheboygan on October 19, 1924, the daughter of Val and Armella (Hoffman) Fredricks. She was a graduate of Holy Name School and Sheboygan North High School class of 1943. Prior to her marriage she was employed at Kohler Co. After Kohler, she was employed by Julilly Kohler often sitting at the kitchen table with Dictaphone ear plugs on typing for hours. She also worked at Wm Goodnough, Sontag Accountants, and Hoffman’s Flowerland.
She is a lifelong member of Holy Name of Jesus Parish and its St. Anne’s Society. Kathryn also was a lifelong sports fan, animal lover, and enjoyed telling stories of her life. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, reading, doing puzzles and playing Scrabble. Kathryn walked in the neighborhood every day until it was too difficult for her. She stopped at Johnson’s Bakery so frequently that she told them she should be buried with two of their hard rolls.
Kathryn is survived by her sons, Warren (Shirley) Mitchell of Plymouth, WI, Alan Mitchell (special friend Celene Moeller), Don (Mary) Mitchell both of Sheboygan, WI and Keith (Connie) Mitchell of Englewood, FL. She is further survived by her grandchildren, Ann (Joy) Mitchell Fessler, Amy (Dennis) Nelson, John (Elizabeth) Mitchell, Christine (John) Bridges, Jennifer (Lonnie) Mitchell Appleget, Sarah Mitchell (fiancé Chris Cardello), and Alyson (JC) Sandstrom; great-grandchildren, Matthew and Mitchell Nelson, Mikel and Adrian Flores, Cayden (Gracie) Mitchell, Alex Wermuth (girlfriend Yatzary Parra), Emily and Zachary Bridges, Charles and Ella Sandstrom. She is also survived by her cat, Graycie, and many nieces, nephews and cousins that she loved dearly.
The family would like to thank Kathryn’s special friends, Mark Butzen, Comanche Weaver Sandstrom and her caregiver, Jessica Rogers.
Kathryn was preceded in death by her husband, Wallace Mitchell; parents; brothers, Claude and Adrian; granddaughter, Stacy Rogers and daughters-in-law, Mary Bauer Mitchell and Cheryl Herzog.
She had a big heart and was compassionate and understanding. She is now probably at the McDonalds in Heaven having lunch with her good, good friend, Grace Jaeger.
A memorial Mass will be said at Holy Name of Jesus Church at a later date.
Memorials may be made to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School or the Humane Society of Sheboygan County.
