Janet Ellen Wood Mitchell

    Janet Ellen Wood Mitchell lost her war with cancer 26 February 2016. She put a courageous effort forward to defeat her cancer, having won the first battle in 2005, but this time could not. Jan was very active in the St. Andrew Society of Colorado, and supportive of Gary as Chieftain, as SAMS, and as an avid reenactor and military historian. She had a special love of dogs, especially Springer Spaniels, and served with rescue groups around the region.

    A Memorial Service on 25 June was attended by Post 100, St. Andrews Society, Sons of Union Veterans, and Sons of the Confederacy, all forming an Honor Guard. Because Jan was fond of referring to Gary’s many uniforms as his “little outfits,” for the two months following her Memorial, Post 100 Uniform of the Day announcements were titled, “Our Little Outfits.”
