Elizabeth (Beth) Mitchell
On a beautiful sunny Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, a party marking the 90th birthday of Elizabeth (Beth) Mitchell was held at the residence she shares with her husband, Larry. There were more than 100 guests present who enjoyed a champagne toast, a delicious picnic dinner prepared by Mark Haddad’s DDAD’S To Go Catering, of Liverpool Township, and recorded music for dancing. The Mitchells, who are amateur ballroom dancers, performed a waltz for their guests.
The party was staged by her daughter, Alison, son-in-law, Eric, three close friend families and her husband. The highlight of the party was the surprise appearance of her brother, Corley, and sister-in-law, Linda, who traveled from Salt Lake City, Utah, in secret to surprise her.
There was a large tent for the sit-down meal and half of their 2,800 square foot pole barn was cleared for dancing. The guest of honor was dressed in navy blue pants and a stunning flowered yellow top.
