Bio Photo There is a word for men that lose their wives, wives that lose their husbands, children that lose their parents.

There is no word for a mother who loses her child...


How you make others feel says a lot about who you are


If I have created a memorial for a family member of yours, don't hesitate to request a transfer.

Any photo I have posted on Find a Grave is intended to be used.... Please feel free to use them in personal use and documentation.

Searching means finding the other entry, even though it may contain an error and working together means sending an edit.

Links, Corrections, Transfers and/or additional information
If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. For further information on this, please refer to how Find a Grave handles duplicate memorials.

Lastly and most importantly
There are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.


"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

- Hunter S. Thompson

Kenneth Mitchell
Your memorial for Kenneth is 86120477

Kenneth John Mitchell was born to John and Elsie Mitchell in Whittier, Calif. April 2, 1924. Ken grew up on a family orange and avocado ranch in Whittier with seven older siblings and one younger, his twin Keith. Music was always an important part of the family life. Following three years as a Military Policeman during WWII, Ken graduated from Whittier College and married Nancy Bean in 1949. Together they went to Boston University School of Theology.

Ken graduated in June of 1952 and was appointed to Rose City Park United Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon. He also served in Creswell and Corvallis, Oregon. Their family now included David, John, Anne and Laurie. In 1960, Ken was appointed to First United Methodist Church in Pasadena. Here, their last child, Julie, joined the family. Ken served for one year in Claremont, Ca, before accepting an appointment to the Methodist National Board of Education in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1966.

He served as Director of Training, conducting numerous workshops for churches in all parts of the United States. Ken was a specialist in organizational development and worked frequently in areas related to management and leadership. In 1972 he returned to the local parish in San Diego at St. Mark's United Methodist Church.

In 1976, Ken created and became director of Another Way, an organization working with churches and denominations (both Protestant and Catholic) in the United States and Canada. His Caring Ministries Program was translated into Korean for the Korean United Methodist Church. Ken developed a workshop in performance appraisal for the Human Resources Program of the US Navy.

Ken continued the Caring Ministries Program through 1998 when he formally retired. Two of his loves in the local church were singing with First United Methodist Church Masterworks Choral and the labyrinth. He was truly happy to have been able to spend his final years in San Diego close to his identical twin brother, Keith Mitchell, a Presbyterian clergyman.

Ken is survived by his wife of 54 years, Nan; sons, David Mitchell of Rochester, New York and John Mitchell of Missoula, Montana; daughters, Anne Mitchell of Lemon Grove, Ca, Laurie Loudenslager of Ketchum, Idaho, and Julie Hatch of Lemon Grove; 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Sister, Helen Eagleson of La Habra Heights; brother, Howard Mitchell of Whittier, Ca, 10 nieces and 5 nephews.
