Elise Debra Mitchell of Provo, Utah was born February 14, 1977 to Dean and Lucille Zabriskie in San Bernardino, California. After her courageous 7 year battle with breast cancer she passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family on July 13, 2020.
Elise's life was a remarkable journey as one of 13 children growing up in Orem. She graduated from Mountain View High School in 1995 and attended UVU. She married Scott Mitchell in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple on June 1, 2001. They are the parents of 3 beautiful daughters, Loren Elise (18), Sarah Elizabeth (15) and Avery Lucille (9). Being their mother was her greatest joy.
Elise was a beautiful soul with a great capacity to love those around her. She had a gift for connecting with people that enabled her to make instant and lasting friendships. She loved to travel, see new places, and meet new people. Everyone who knew Elise loved her. She always made you feel like you were the most important person in the room. She loved her family more than anything. She had the greatest sense of humor and her home was filled with love and laughter. Even in her darkest moments, she wanted to make those around her feel comfortable in her presence. She fought her cancer with an unbelievable amount of faith, courage, and grace. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. We are grateful for our eternal ties and look forward to being with her again.
Elise is survived by her husband, Scott, daughters, Loren, Sarah, Avery, her parents Dean and Lucille Zabriskie, and her siblings: Valerie, Slade, Tara, Trevor, Rhome, Erica, Aaron, Ethan, Ryan, Jordan, Bryce, and Delane and many loving family and friends who will dearly miss her.
