Dorothy was born on Aug. 11, 1927; daughter of Andy & Hazel (Whitney) Schlenz in Sidney, MT. Dorothy married Calvin Mitchell on May 28, 1945, and to this union three sons were born. They lived in Glendive until they moved to Utah in 1974; returning to Glendive in 1978 when Calvin started welding in the Sidney oil field.

Dorothy was for the most part a housewife and mother who enjoyed gardening, riding her Dixon mower, mowing her five acres of lawn, fishing, hunting, square dancing, bowling, and snowmobiling, especially in Yellowstone National Park, until rheumatoid arthritis started crippling her.

She is survived by three sisters Joyce Hernandez, Sidney, Betty Lamphier, Eastern Montana Veteran's Home, Glendive; Della Baker, Missoula, MT; sons Clyde (Sharon), Glendive; Duane (Sherry), Sidney; Allen (Linda), Baker, MT; eight grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
