David and Helen Mitchell Obituary

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the tragic passing of David L. and Helen H. Mitchell on March 12, 2024.  While their family is mourning this great loss, we are rejoicing in the knowledge that they are now in heaven with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

David (89) and Helen (87) were married for 63 years, creating a wonderful example of faithfulness and love.  They were partners in life, business, and faith. Together the couple founded the company, Tri-State Plastics, Inc., where David served as president, and Helen was the financial administrator.  They have attended Sewickley Presbyterian Church for over 30 years, where they were involved in many groups and committees. Helen took great joy in being a part of the Koinonia Women’s group, and David was a loyal member of the Journeymen Men’s group. Prior to joining Sewickley Presbyterian, they were members at Sharon Community Presbyterian Church for 30 years as well.

In addition to a strong commitment to their business and church, David and Helen were highly involved in their local community, where together they helped lead the Crescent-Shousetown Area Historical Association. David served on the local Water and Sewer Authority board and in 2021 was recognized by the state of Pennsylvania for more than 40 years of service.

David and Helen shared a deep love for their family, and took great pride in their children, grandchildren, and great-grandson.  They are survived by their loving children and their spouses: Mark (Anna Marie), Ann (Cort), James (Liz), and Paul (Missy).  By their grandchildren: Mitchell, Brenton  (Justine), Ava, and Emma.  Their great-grandson, Grant, also brought them much joy and happiness. Additionally, they are survived by David’s siblings: Robert, Douglas (Tedi), Bruce (Lenore), Eleanor (Robert), Karen (Frank), and Stuart.

David and Helen’s life was exemplified in their love for their family, church, and community.  Together they leave behind a legacy of leadership, generosity and kindness that will continue to shine brightly and impact all who had the privilege of knowing them.

A joint Celebration of Life for David and Helen will be held at Sewickley Presbyterian Church, on April 20th, at 1:00 pm, In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Crescent Township Volunteer Fire Department, in honor of David and Helen’s legacy of civic responsibility and love for the community.
