Ernest Mitchell

Ernie Mitchell went to heaven to be with his loving wife Josephine. Ernie and Josephine were married for 75 years and were inseparable. They loved to dance to big band music of the 1940s. Ernie was a WWII veteran of the Coast Guard. He loved Kaiser Frazer and Nash automobiles and going to car shows.

He worked very hard as a self-employed carpet installer for over 50 years.

He was preceded in death by his wife Josephine and daughter Janet. Ernie had 6 children: Ernie Mitchell Jr. (Elizabeth), Janet K. Andreano (Chuck), Mike Mitchell (Sheri), Jeanie Fry, Laurie Bensen, and Carol Mitchell. He was the best father and will be missed dearly.

Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 12:00PM at Merle Hay Funeral Home: 4400 Merle Hay Rd., Des Moines. A visitation will take place from 9AM-12PM prior to the service, also at the funeral home.
