Alice Mitchell, 91, died at 6:05 P.M. on Saturday December 7th at Sunny Acres Nursing Facility in Petersburg, Illinois.

Mitchell was born Alice Westmoreland-Stillwell in 192l in Atlanta Georgia. It was in Atlanta where Alice developed her life long love affair with fashion; modeling for community fashion shows and local boutiques. Mitchell's second love became the culinary arts where she studied under Home Economics professor, Gladys Powell and later became employed as her assistant at Atlanta's historic Spellman College.

Alice met and married her husband of 70 years, Edward Mitchell in August of 1943. The couple relocated to his family home of Springfield Illinois. The couple was the first to build in what is now known as the Harris Subdivision on Springfield's North side.

Mrs. Mitchell became very active in Springfield society (The Hilltopperettes, Sunday Evening Social Club and The Lasantas). She became a member of Zion Missionary Baptist Church where for many years she served on the Usher board and the Church's Culinary Committee. She was employed by the Schanbacher family for 30 years.

Mitchell was preceded in death by her parents, Lucille and Jesse Westmoreland-Stillwell and one brother James.

Mitchell is survived by her husband Edward Mitchell, her sons Jonathan Mitchell, Brian Mitchell and their daughters; Nadia and India Mitchell, as well as nieces Joanne Ellison (Clayton Mo.) and Nelsie Williams (Riverdale, Ga.).

Interment will follow at Camp Butler Cemetery.
