LCHS loses long-time supporter Milton Mitchell

We are sorry to report that  one  of our long-time historical society members,  Milton Mitchell,  died earlier this week (7/21/14) in Rapid City. He was 84 years old.  

A native of Lawrence County, Milton continued a family tradition of ranching in our county.  He was named "Outstanding Young Farmer" in 1959. 

He is survived by his wife, Jacke Mitchell; children Len (Darcy) Mitchell, Le Anna (Dave) Nielsen, Toby Harley and Roxanne Harley; eight grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; two sisters:  Cheri Miller and Rev. Bee (Quentin) Neufeld and numerous nieces and nephews.  

Milton's wife, Jacke, has been the long-time Treasurer for the Lawrence County Historical Society.  He was on hand at our LCHS Spring Meeting in late March when Jacke was presented with an award for her long service to LCHS.

Funeral services for Milton were held Thursday, July 24, at the St. Onge United Church of Christ.  Our condolences go out to Jacke and all members of the Mitchell family.

A memorial has been established with the United Church of Christ in St. Onge.
