Death of alumni

February 13, 2018 by Janet Wood Roscher (Register to contact)

Vickie R. Mitchell, age 58, fell asleep in death on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. From her birth in Kansas City, MO, on August 25, 1959, until her death, she enriched the lives of those around her both in love and in faith. Born to Charles "Corky" and Joyce (Brown) Wood she would soon be the oldest of four children. From an early age, Vickie found joy and satisfaction in preaching the word of God to everyone she met. This devotion led her to symbolize her dedication to Jehovah God in baptism on June 10, 1973, as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. A 1977 graduate from Lawson, Missouri, Vickie, with her beautiful blue eyes and warm, inviting smile soon caught the attention of a special man. On March 5, 1978, Vickie wed her one and only true love, Ted Mitchell. As they embarked on their journey together, Vickie, achieved two of her ultimate goals. Firstly, that of serving as a full-time volunteer preacher of the Bible's good news. In 1988, she rejoiced in the privilege of attending the Pioneer Service School of Jehovah's Witnesses with her mom. Secondly, Vickie, with her beloved Ted, realized their dream of starting a family. Passing on their family values and teaching their daughter Joy about Jehovah was one of Vickie's greatest pleasures. Despite failing health over the last 13 years, Vickie never stopped preaching about Jehovah even at nursing homes and hospitals. All the while doing so with her contagious smile, few could resist. She is survived by her most devoted and loyal husband, Ted; dearest daughter, Joy (Amadeo) Mejia; dear mother, Joyce; beloved siblings, Janet Roscher, Matt (Becky) Wood, Mark (Sabrina) Wood; and many treasured nieces and nephews, as well as many friends that were like family, including ones who chose her to be their grandma. She is preceded in death by her father, Corky and daughter, Faith. All whose lives were touched by Vickie are invited to attend her memorial services at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 6033 E 137 ST, Grandview, MO, 64030 on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at 2 p.m. to reminisce, grieve, and support one another.
