Gail (Gordon) Mitchell, 49, of Mount Vernon, Illinois, passed from this life on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 2:22 P.M. at Barnes Jewish Hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri surrounded by her children. Gail worked for A.C.S. for 18 years as a Loan Processor. She later worked for Addus Healthcare in Southern Illinois. She was a longtime member and faithful supporter of Southtown Apostolic Church in Mount Vernon. Gail served on the Usher Board, Past Appreciation Committee, and Women’s Auxiliary of Church. She was also a member of the Jefferson County Parent Action Team. Gail enjoyed reading books and magazines and frequently traveled to Indianapolis to visit and spend time with her mother, children, sisters, grandchildren, and other family and friends. Gail will always and forever be truly missed by all who loved her. A limb has fallen from the family tree. I hear a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.” Remember the last times, the laughter, and the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. “MY MIND IS AT EASE, MY SOUL IS AT REST.” Remember all, how I was truly blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I will miss you all dearly, so keep your chin up until the day comes we’re together again.
