Glen Irvin Mitchell, aged 77 years of Moose Jaw, SK and formerly Mitchellton, SK, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019. Glen was born November 1st, 1941 in Moose Jaw, SK to Bill and June Mitchell and raised in the Mitchellton farming community. He was predeceased by his parents, and sister-in-law, Shirley Knelsen.
