Beulah “Rae” Mitchell


A beautiful and loving Christian.

She was a true reflection of our Lord’s commandment to love one another. We will truly miss her.

A Remarkable Christian Individual

Blessings and prayers extended to the Mitchell family. May their sadness be an encouragement to the life that the couple lived and embodied in Christian spirit-hood. The couple was an inspiration to our family (the Norwood’s) as they were always so welcoming and friendly to ALL who came to church. Be it they were a long-time member or a first-time guest, the Mitchell’s always displayed an open and loving feeling to ALL they encountered. They WILL CERTAINLY BE MISSED; here’s to knowing that they ARE WELCOMING TO ALL IN HEAVEN as they were on Earth. Prayers and blessings.

Rae and Maurice, now together in Glory

They were a lovely Christian couple who bestowed lasting blessings upon all who knew them. I especially remember Rae’s spiritual strength and welcoming presence in IUMC and UMW. When I once brought my daughter’s African American friend and her mother to a UMW mother’s day luncheon, Rae was the only person who came to our table, introduced herself, welcomed my guests to IUMC, and invited them back. I will never forget this. So happy for you to be with Our Lord and Maurice, Rae, but your compassion, sweet spirituality, and genuine servanthood live on with us forever. Love in Christ, Barbara Martin

A Truly Christian Woman

Rae devoted her energy to Christian education at Immanuel UMC and also our Covington District. She was a spiritual mother to countless children. She was a mentor to our young women who followed her in service. Betty Minor

Special Servant

Rae taught our children in Sunday School, was a devoted church member, and sweet friend. A favorite memory is when United Methodist Women had a style show of wedding dresses and she modeled her wedding dress. She absolutely glowed! We’re thankful to have known her and Maurice.
Ray Nell and Dave Blettner

Forever Love

We enjoyed getting to know Rae & Maurice in our earliest days at IUMC. They were lovely people & we are now joyful that they are together once again, this time with God our Father, for eternity.
Love, Bruce & Judy Yoakum

One of a kind.

Rae was one of the first to we lcome our family at Immanuel. So devoted to Christ’s church and God’s children.

So sorry for your loss

Rae and Maurice were a wonderful couple I truly loved and admired. Rae always had a sweet greeting for me when I saw her and thanked me for looking after Maurice. I’ll miss them both. Liz Woolford Listerman


Much love and appreciation to Rae for her steadfast beliefs, strong moral values and kind hearted spirit toward all of God’s children. She taught my children in Sunday school and has always asked about them as they grew up. Rest in peace dear saint …we love you!

Hug for family of Rae Mitchell

She came every year on Memorial day to visit her Andrews relatives in Ohio. It was important for her to remember those passed on so she would visit several local cemeteries and place flowers. Our children called her ” the chewing gum lady” because she always brought them a pack of their own to enjoy. Don remembers a time that Rae took him and his parents to the greater Cincinnati airport and he actually got to board an empty plane on the airfield. Quite a thrill for a six year old boy. I loved to talk about flowers with her .

Good and Faithful Servant

Rae and Maurice were two of the first people to welcome us to Immanuel in 1985. From her years of Sunday School service she showed me the ropes when I became involved in Children’s ministry . She also was kind to my 3 sons during her ministry. I loved hearing the story of how she and Maurice met and began dating .

My deepest condolences

I will always remember Rae for her kind smile and sweet spirit.
Doris Daugherty

So grateful to have known Rae

What a wonderful soul and disciple of Jesus. Rae and Maurice were my Sunday School teachers some 30+/- years ago and I am so grateful for all that they taught me, and so many others at IUMC. Love and prayers to all who were fortunate enough to have her in their lives.

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing. Proverbs 10:7

I cherish many memories of Rae. I hope to follow her example of faithfulness to her faith and church; her example of perseverance in and through all things. I find comfort in thinking of Rae in heaven at peace with her husband. With love, Mary Beth McClendon

Remembering you

Rae Mitchell seemed to be part of the fabric of Erlanger during most of my life. She was a part of many organizations and always seen at community gatherings. She was ready to help any good cause. She and Maurice even volunteered to help Lloyd’s Academic Boosters at one of the fundraising dinner theaters the group sponsored. I’ve missed seeing her during the last years of her life, but I was always glad to know that she was still with us. I’ll miss her.

Deepest Sympathy

Please accept our deep and sincere condolences. Rae and Maurice were beloved by all at Immanuel. Both of our children had them as Sunday School teachers years ago. Our children, like us, loved them. They were a joyful pair in our Happy Loafers meetings. Love, Bill and Patty Young.

In Sympathy

I first met Rae and Maurice when my husband, Jerry, and I joined Erlanger United Methodist Church in 1960. They were a a Christian couple who worked for the Lord whenever they were asked. We remained friends when they started attending Immanuel UM Church. When I would see them in the community at various places, they always asked how my family was and we had a nice conversation. Since I too loved sports, I would usually see them at Lloyd’s basketball and football games. They were two great cheerleaders. I’m thankful that Rae and Mitch (this is what I called him) were my friends along Life’s road. Ann Abney

In Sympathy

Dear Terry and Sandi,
I am so sorry to learn of your loss. May warm memories sustain you.

With sympathy,
Minda Thompson

Deepest sympathy

Deepest sympathy to all of Rae’s family and extended family from the Collins family – Randy and Kathy, Marc and Lisa. We all have cherished memories of her and her kindness to all of us. We were blessed to have known her!

RIP, Rae

A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. A very special lady. Condolences to her family.

My beloved Mrs Mitchell

Mrs Mitchell was such a lovely woman. One year she drove a carload of rambunctious kiddos (me included) to Aldersgate church camp and that cemented my love for her. She always had a smile and a hug for me, and I adored her. I’m so grateful that she’s part of my history. ❤️

I Will Never Forget You

Rae was a resident at Magnolia Springs Florence before going to Florence Park Care. I was her housekeeper at both places and loved how she would always tell me that Terry was her little brother. I remember her coming to Magnolia when she was 95 and was still doing back stretches on the floor. Now that was amazing at that age. My mom shared a birthday with her same year as well. You rest now and enjoy your wings.
