Vennetta Ann Mitchell

January 27, 1956 — February 1, 2021

Our beloved sister, Vennetta Ann Mitchell departed this earth on, February 1, 2021, to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Vennetta was born to Mary L. (Taylor) Mitchell and Onnan(Togo) Mitchell on January 27, 1956. At the tender age of 19 months, her mother remarried and raised Vennetta and her older sister with Robert L. Miller, Sr. Robert and Mary added four sons and one daughter to their 60 years of marriage.

Vennetta graduated from Bosse High School where she excelled as a student. She worked in the school office as a clerk during those years and often typed and graded papers. She was one of the first girls of color to become a Bengie Babe.

At a very early age, Vennetta professed her belief in the Lord. She was baptized joining the Mt Olive Missionary Baptist Church and later the Zion Missionary Baptist Church where she grew up. At the time of her death, she was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church where she was employed as the Sr. Secretary. She developed a special friendship with Father R. Kuper and Ms. Ruth Miller while attending there.

Vennetta moved to Dallas, TX in 1982 and began working as the Office Manager at Brooks Brothers of New York for several years. In 1987, she relocated to North Elizabeth, NJ where she worked in the corporate office for Torcon Construction Broker as an Executive Assistant to the company President. She coordinated with Project Managers building skyscrapers, banks, hospitals, bridges, and corporate offices throughout New Jersey.

In 1996, she returned to Evansville to care for her elderly parents. Being true to her love of caring for others and concern for her neighborhood, Vennetta became very involved in the Tepe Park Neighborhood Association. She served as Treasurer and was very active in the association’s projects to do youth outreach, re-vitalization of the park, and planning holiday parties for the neighborhood.
