Kim Mitchell

May 23, 1963 – October 27, 2020

Kim Micheale Mitchell, beloved daughter of Ronald Howard Mitchell and Marilyn Walker Mitchell, was born on May 29,1967 in Houston, Texas. She received her baptism (during early childhood years) at Augustana Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas. During Kim’s adult years, she recommitted her life through baptism at Pilgrim Congregational United Church of Christ, Houston, Texas.

Kim was educated in the Fort Bend Independent School District and was a graduate of Willowridge High School in 1985. She attended both Prairie View A&M University and Texas Southern University.

Kim’s work experience was grounded in retail and sales, where her successes led to the Oil and Gas Logistics industry. Gaining expertise in fuel distribution included service with ConocoPhillips, United Petroleum Transports, J.A.M. Distributing, and finally Phillips 66. This robust career with the energy sector spanned 15+ years, where she built strong relationships with colleagues that developed into lifelong friendships.

Kim had a love of both music and the water – excelling in competitive swimming over 4 years and becoming a certified lifeguard. She was an accomplished flautist and color guard member with the award winning Willowridge High School Marching and Symphonic Band program. After completing high school, she would return to her high school as a volunteer, sharing much time and counsel. Friends and family shall always remember Kim’s love of football, specifically the Dallas Cowboys, taking endless trips to Dallas to be with friends and family to witness “those Cowboys”.

Most important to Kim were her greatest joys…daughters Brittany (born in 1986) and Bri’Ann (born in 1991), grandsons Landon and Logan…and the love of her life, confidant, and best friend Rodney, with whom she shared a love like no other for the past 32 years.

Our own reliable “Google”, we relied on Kim to keep us connected and informed on family and friends. When asking her… “where is”…who is….what is”… she would consistently be able to answer or call to make sure we “knew”.

Kim leaves to celebrate her memory, her parents, Ronald and Marilyn Mitchell of Missouri City, Texas; fiancé, Rodney Smith of Richmond, Texas; daughters, Brittany Mitchell-Franklin ( Jonathan) of Houston, Texas; Bri’Ann Smith of Richmond; grandsons, Landon and Logan Franklin of Houston; sister, Yvette Mitchell of Missouri City; grandmother, Faye Walker of Farmers Branch, Texas; aunts, Sydna Paul and Sylvia Brooks of Houston; aunt, Sandra Walker of Dallas; uncle, Nathaniel Dayle Mitchell of Houston; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, family and friends.
