On July 22, 1929 a branch of the Mitchell family tree was born that would flourish and bear the sweetest fruit for the next 90 years. Annie Nell Mitchell, Miss Sally as she preferred, has parented and grandparented numerous children. She was a faithful servant of our Lord Jesus caring for the children's nursery church ministry at Britmorre Baptist Church in Houston then finishing her mission at First Baptist Church of Kosse since 1979. Miss Sally expressed her love for the Lord through teaching His beautiful children. Her radiant smile and crystal blue eyes were always ready to provide a word of encouragement, a praise to the Lord or a smack on the leg whatever was most needed at the moment. She leaves behind a legacy of love and friendship that will continue for decades to come.
