Obituary for Nancy Anne White Mitchell

On Friday afternoon, May 11, 2018 at 3 pm, the final bell rang to let Nancy Anne White Mitchell’s First Grade Class at Stony Mill Elementary School know they could go home and enjoy a beautiful spring weekend. At the same time that final school bell rang, the Lord also called Anne to her heavenly home for all eternity while she was surrounded by her loving family at her earthly home at 2035 Powhatan Dr. Danville, Va.

Longtime mother, teacher and educator, and beloved member of Fairview United Methodist Church, Anne had been valiantly battling metastatic melanoma.

Anne was a devoted mother, educator and caregiver to all children, including those that she taught for 29 years in Danville City and Pittsylvania County schools. Many people knew her as a dedicated teacher and education advocate at Stony Mill Elementary School, Park Avenue Elementary, and Coates Elementary. Anne attended both Virginia Tech and Averett College where she received her B.S. in elementary education in 1986. Prior to college, Anne attended George Washington High School and was a part of the Marching Eagles Flag Corps. She graduated from George Washington in 1982.

In 1988, Anne married Ronnie D. Mitchell at Kentuck Baptist Church. They were blessed with a son, Blake David Mitchell, in 1999. Currently, Blake is a senior at Tunstall High School, graduating with honors, May 25, 2018 and will be attending James Madison University in the fall.

Many will remember her for her generous heart, warm smile, and love of family, friends, and students. Anne is survived by her son Blake, mother Nancy H. Tate, siblings Ralph O. White, Jr. and husband Jeffrey Morgan, Sharon White Cooper and husband Donald Cooper, and David L. White and husband Kojiro Doi – as well as two nieces, Stacey and Katherine Williams.

A memorial service honoring the life of Anne Mitchell will be held at Fairview United Methodist Church, Westover Dr., Danville on Tuesday, May 15, at 6:30 p.m. A visitation of friends will be held from 5 – 6:15, also at the church.



In lieu of flowers, and in carrying out the life mission of Anne, the family respectfully requests that memorial donations be made to Stony Mill Elementary School, 100 Stony Mill Circle, Danville, Va. All donations will be used to further the education and well-being of the children served by the school.

Norris Funeral Services, Inc. and Crematory, Mt. Hermon Chapel, 3995 Franklin Turnpike, Danville is serving the Mitchell family. Online condolences may be made at www.norrisfuneral.com.
