From The North Midland Times newspaper, Friday 9 February 1945:
Obituary - Late Mrs. Christina Mitchell
"The death occurred with tragic suddenness at the North Midlands District Hospital on Thursday evening of last week of Mrs. Christina Logan Mitchell wife of Mr. William Scott ("Billy") Mitchell, of Waddy Forest. The deceased lady, who was aged 46 years was an inmate of the hospital for only a few hours before the Grim Reaper claimed her. A native of Scotland, the late Christina Mitchell was twice married, her former husband being Mr. Kerr. Three children, Jim, Robin and Maisie (Mrs. D. Martin), resulted from this union. Every sympathy is felt for them and the bereaved husband and their three sons - William, Charles and Ian, who are left to face their irretrievable loss. The funeral took place at the Winchester Cemetery on Saturday and was largely attended by residents of the district, who gathered to pay their last respects to one who had always been popular amongst them. The last rites were performed by Mr. Tom Morcombe."
