Lila Mae Mitchell (Mull) June 16,1902-February 20,1978
My Mom was born on a farm just outside of Carson City, Michigan. She attended Carson City High School and moving to Lansing graduated from Lansing Central High School. She worked at the Fisher Body Plant at the Oldsmobile Plant location on Olds Avenue. Fisher Body later moved to the Old Durant Car Company building. She worked there through World War II as a seamstress sewing backs and cushions for Oldsmobile cars. In her later years she worked as a seamstress for two large companies in Lansing manufacturing window drapes and recovering furniture. I remember her as always having a smile on her face and her desire to help or do something for some one. I dearly miss her. She was a wonderful Mother.
