Obituary Image


To everything there is a season, A time to every purpose under the Heavens:


A time to be born,  Lenora was born on December 20, 1949, to the late Isabella Howard.


A time to depart home,  Lenora peacefully transitioned  to be with her Lord on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.


A time to be educated, Lenora attended Belleview Santos High School.


A time to love, Lenora was a devoted and loving wife to Lincoln C. Mitchell, Jr., for fifty-one years.  They were married on April 26, 1971.


A time to worship, Lenora was faithful in her Kingdom duties.  During her many years of military life she would always located and joined a local church to serve. Whatever her hands found to do, she did it with all her might! She was a member of Stanton MBC Weirsdale, Florida, City Light Church, Ocala, Florida, and New Hope MBC, Anthony Florida. Her ministry was not contained within the walls of the church building but was displayed within the many lives she touched.  She was a passionate coordinator and would rally family, friends, and acquaintances to come together in support of many worthy causes.  She was a humble servant and gave of herself and resources unselfishly. When it is all said and done, there are not many words that need to be said about Lenora, as in the song titled “May The Work I’ve Done Speak For Me”!

She was also preceded in death by her sister Annie Lou Banks and brother Darnell Howard.

She leaves to cherish her memories and continue her legacy, a loving husband, Lincoln C. Mitchell, Jr.; two children, Shana M. Mitchell, of Ocala, FL and Lincoln C. Mitchell, III (Debra) of Atlanta, GA; two stepdaughters: Tamara Simon (Ali) Munich, Germany and Delaney White, Anthony, FL.; ten grandchildren: Dr. Khiry Sutton, Trevor Bracey, Jr., Brianna Mitchell, Khali Mitchell, Sr., Sequoia Robinson, Leah Mitchell, Caleigh Mitchell, Lincoln C. Mitchell, IV, Alisha Simon and Malik Simon; four great-grandchildren: Khali Mitchell, Jr., N’yomi Quetant, Khabriel Mitchell, and Melek Simon; six sisters:  Connie Jenkins, Carrie Kellum, Ernestine Summers, Ada Suggs, Joyce Freeman, Brenda Hillman; six brothers: Johnell Howard, Theophlis Howard (Jackie), Edward Howard, Theodore Howard, Alonzo Cohen (Peggy); god-brother, Nathaniel Coney; one great-great aunt Lula Mae Keaton; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and sorrowing friends.
