George Mitchell
1929-2019
With heavy
hearts, we announce the passing of George Mitchell on Friday, August
23, 2019. His illness was sudden and he passed peacefully at the South
Shore Regional Hospital. George was predeceased by his wife Eleanor
(Goulden) and he was the proud father of Kathryn (John), Patrice, and
Anne Marie (Robert). Grandchildren Kyle, Kim (Justin), Ryan, Elyse,
Kelly, and Alexander loved him dearly. Little Jacob was his first
great-grandchild.
Born in
Chester, NS on December 19, 1929, George was the son of the late Ian
and Madge (Harnish) Mitchell. George grew up in Chester and is
survived by sister Shirley (Gummer) and brother David (Anita), all
residing in Ottawa, as well as many nieces and
nephews.
Once finishing
high school, George joined the Royal Bank and worked with them for 39
years. He held, among other positions, the titles of Loans Manager and
Assistant Manager at various Branch Offices, District Offices and Head
Office, in over 14 different locations in Canada and the
USA.
Retiring from
RBC at the young age of 55 and returning to Bridgewater allowed George
to spend his time playing golf, curling, enjoying time with family and
friends, and doing much volunteer work. For 4 years he was Treasurer
of the Hospital Foundation, Treasurer of the Foundation Campaign, and
for 2 years was Treasurer of the South Shore Regional Hospital Board.
He was also Treasurer of the Bridgewater Kiwanis Club for a number of
years and was instrumental in the start of Senior Wheels. He became
Finance Chairman of the New Parish Hall Planning Committee Holy
Trinity Church soon after.
George looked
forward to spending time with his family every summer at White Point
and many times brought home the family cribbage tournament trophy. He
was always hungry for lobster and prepared many a feast to share.
Losing his dear friend Sally in June was quite a blow. He so enjoyed
their chats and special dinners out. Apparently George was quite a
character known by many around town with his wood-carved
walkingstick.Devoted Boston Red Sox and Montreal Canadiens fan he was!
He took great pride in his home and loved to garden and putter around
his yard. He was generous to a fault. Fairness and honesty were traits
he strongly believed in and upheld. Now there is a huge void in our
family and « Georgie » will be missed by all of us who loved
him so much.
Funeral
arrangements are under the care and direction of the
R.A Corkum Funeral Home, 2719 Hwy 325 in Wileville where
visitation will be held on Thursday, September 12 from 4-6 pm. Funeral
