Birth: Jan. 10, 1875
Arkansas, USA
Death: Oct. 16, 1955

El Paso County
Texas, USA

Anna Matella Welch, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. T. G. Welch of Altus, AR, was born January 10, 1875, and passed to her heavenly reward from El Paso, TX, where she made her home with her daughter, on October 16, 1955.
She was educated in the schools of Arkansas and graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts from the Burrow College of Altus in June, 1896. In September of that same year she was married to Rev. Charles Fletcher Mitchell, who was also a graduate of Burrow college. Together they served many churches and congregations in the Indian Mission Conference, the West Oklahoma conference, and the Oklahoma Conference of the The Methodist Church.
Four sons and one daughter were born to them in Methodist parsonages. She was a wonderful mother, devoting herself to her family and instructing her children in the Holy Scriptures and the doctrines of The Methodist Church. She taught in Sunday schools, worked with missionary societies, and accompanied her husband in making pastoral calls, for she was as truly called to a life of ministry in the Church as was he. Her greatest joy was to take part in the various programs of the Church.
She was a life member of the Women's Foreign Missionary Society and became a charter member and life member of the Woman's Society of Christian Service of the The Methodist Church.
She is survived by two sons and one daughter. Truly, her worth was far above rubies for her children rise up to call her blessed and believe the words of her Master concerning another consecrated woman of long ago, "She hath done what she could."
