Lucille Catlin Mitchell

September 13, 1926 - November 22, 2015
Brunswick-Lucille Catlin Mitchell, age 89 of Brunswick died Sunday, November 22 at Hawthorne House in Freeport.  She was born September 13, 1926, the daughter of Louis and Mildred Catlin.  She attended Brunswick schools and graduated from Brunswick High School in 1944.

She married her favorite dancing partner, Fred Mitchell, on July 23, 1946, who predeceased her in 2004.  Lucille was a homemaker and mother.  She also worked for Brunswick City Schools as a  nurse’s assistant.

Lucille was an accomplished seamstress, enjoyed knitting and crocheting, and she loved to dance with Fred at any opportunity.  Her family will carry forever her dry sense of humor.

Also surviving are nine grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
