1936 – 2015


MitcfhellJusinesqOn Saturday October 10, 2015, Justina Mitchell went home to be with Jesus. She will be missed deeply by her family, which includes five children and their spouses and grandchildren: son, Doug Mitchell, son, Murray (Liz) and children, Tom (Yvette) and Trevor, daughter, Wendy and child Nicolas, daughter, Cindy (Tom Burns) and children, Jennifer, Melissa (Mitchel Pride), Tyler, daughter, Linda (Gary Hirt) and children, Shyla and Addison, great grandchildren, Riley, Seth and Austin, Emily, Zachary and Adalyn. 

Justina was born on October 20, 1936 in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. She was the oldest daughter and was predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth and Aron Dyck, brothers, Peter and Abe and sisters, Marge and Helena. Growing up, she lived in all the western provinces before settling in Manitoba in 1959. She travelled back and forth to Saskatchewan often by train to see family before her parents moved to Winnipeg. Justina worked in Winnipeg as a nurse’s aide before moving to the Kaleida area in 1967. In the early 80’s, she moved into Manitou where she worked as a private home care attendant for 20 + yrs. She also helped people with whatever they needed; cleaning houses, ironing, gardening, and all sorts of errands. Cleaning the Credit Union was also something she could never forget to do. She was active and made sure she walked up town every day; even on the coldest days you'd see Justina walking around Manitou. She belonged to the Manitou MB Church and many different associations, including: Christian Women's club, Pioneer Girls, and Ladies Fellowship, just to name a few. Her faith was strong and she always thought the best of everyone, making friends wherever she went. Family was always very important to her and she was very interested in traveling anywhere to see them and to meet new family, too. She tried to take a yearly trip to either Saskatchewan, Alberta or to see her brother's family in Belize. She will be missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews and brothers and sisters in-law as well. Justina would say:"I am truly thankful that God has been with me and helped me through many problems and has always been a true friend." 

Memorial service at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday October 15, 2015 at Manitou Mennonite Brethren Church with a private interment prior at the Manitou Cemetery. Because of the great care that was given to her in the Pembina Manitou Health Center and her devotion to the Lord, donations can be made in Justina’s memory to either the PMHC or the Manitou Mennonite Brethren Church.
