Virginia ‘Dale’ Mitchell

You can never be too overdressed! That’s how Virginia lived her life. Always dressed to the nines even if it was a simple trip to the grocery store. Even in her final hours she took time to apply lipstick and dress up before the ambulance arrived.

Virginia “Dale” Mitchell was born June 12, 1929, to Leonard and Ruby Stegriy and sadly passed away January 30, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. After the loss of her brother Dalton, Virginia went to live with her Aunt Hazel and Uncle Harry who raised her like their own.

In 1949, Virginia met and married the love of her live Richard (Dick) Mitchell in Bainsville Minnesota. They ended up moving to Laurel in 1955 where they raised their four children; Dennis, Terri, Cheryl, and Rick.

Virginia was a beautician by trade for over 50 years and even owned her own salon called Chat and Curl. If Virginia wasn’t doing hair she was usually out shopping or out to lunch with family or friends. Even at the young age of 86 Virginia was still driving to go to lunch or on a shopping trip. She was always taking care of her peers whether it be her friends at South Forty or at St. John’s Lutheran Home. If you needed a ride, a home cooked meal or a shoulder to lean on Virginia was always there.

Virginia is survived by her son Dennis (Sharon) Mitchell and her two daughters Terri Miller and Cheryl Tryan. She is also survived by her nine grandchildren and numerous great and great great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents Leonard and Ruby Stegriy, son, Rick, brother Dalton, son-in-law Mike Miller and the love of her life Dick Mitchell.

Services will be held February 8, 2018 at St. Anthony’s Church in Laurel at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, Virginia requested memorials be made to the Humane Society. The family would also like to thank the loving staff at St. John’s Lutheran Home for taking such good care of our loved one.
