December 16, 1935 – February 1, 2019
On February 1, 2019 Lancelot W.H. Mitchell of Pigeon Lake went to be with his Heavenly Father, Lord and Saviour at the age of 83.
He was predeceased by his parents, Harold and Maisie Mitchell and brother-in-law, Arthur Carlzon. Lancelot is survived by his precious wife of 54 years, Pamela; son Lancelot (Haimie) Mitchell of Pigeon Lake, AB; daughter, Brenda (Garth) McIntosh of Longview, AB; grandchildren, Jesse and David Mitchell, Felicia, Lillianna, Marshall, and Garth III McIntosh; sisters, Jeanne Carlzon of Sherwood Park, Heather (Robert) Davies of England; nephew, Jonathan (Deborah) Carlzon of Sherwood Park; nieces, Rachel (Brad) Bauman, and Emma-Louise (Callum) Andrews of England; great-nephews, Joshua and Aaron Bauman, and God’s little miracle, Levi Carlzon and great-niece, Georgia Andrews.
Special thanks to Dr. Van Der Walt, and the staff of Unit 43 for providing comfort and care for him and allowing his beloved wife to stay at his side the entire time he was in the hospital. Also, thanks to Patrick and Wayne for sitting with him and enjoying his stories about cricket and checking on him, hoping to hear more!
Lancelot will be missed immensely by all who knew and loved him. He will be remembered as a hard worker and a kind heart who would talk to anyone and reject no one. He loved life, his family, and sharing his faith; he loved giving a “warm welcome” with his hot curries and “hot under the collar” discussions about politics!
A Funeral Service was held Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 at the Hoadley Evangelical Missionary Church with interment at Lakedell Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held on March 2, 2019 (visit www.womboldfuneralhomes.com). Please bring your stories. Missions were near and dear to Lancelot’s heart.
