Christine Sanders Mitchell, age 87, of Pittsboro, died peacefully on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at her home. Her daughter and beloved cat Patches were by her side.

Christine was born June 15, 1932 in Chatham County, NC to the late Laura Annie and Clen Sanders. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Lewis ‘Sidney’ Mitchell.

Surviving relatives include her daughter Linda Thomas of Pittsboro; her son Ralph Sanders (Debbie) of Pittsboro; five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

A graveside service was held Friday, March 27, 2020 at 1 p.m. at Bynum United Methodist Cemetery with Rev. Jerry Sanders presiding.

Christine was a homemaker and also worked at Chatham Mill for many years. She had a love for gardening and planting beautiful flowers.

Christine enjoyed cooking for her family and friends. Knowing her means that you have a memory of cooking with her or eating something she’d poured her heart into. That famous ‘ho cake’ or egg custard pie... or if you’re a grandchild, you’ll remember those ‘doughboys’ she’d make with you out of those leftover biscuit scraps!! The love she had for her family was always evident in all she did - her family was her heart and soul! If you learned anything from her example, it should be to always treat others the way you want to be treated, be kind, and always do good for others.
