Annabel Hopkins Mitchell, a homemaker, died Thursday after surgery at Anne Arundel Medical Center. The Severna Park resident was 88.
Annabel Hopkins was born in Baltimore and graduated from Bel Air High School. She attended the former Alabama College in Montevallo, Ala., and graduated in 1938 from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va.
After graduating, she worked as a librarian at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
She married R. Lee Mitchell Jr. in 1940. He died in February, just after the couple celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.
"She was very active in the auxiliary for Harford Memorial Hospital," said her son Wylie Hopkins Mitchell of Severna Park. She was a past president of that organization.
Mrs. Mitchell also invested a lot of time in the alumni organization for her college sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, and she was a founding member of the Harford County chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Havre de Grace Presbyterian Church, 551 Franklin St., with burial in Grove Presbyterian Cemetery.
In addition to her son, Mrs. Mitchell is survived by another son, Ryland Lee Mitchell III of Silver Spring; two brothers, William Wylie Hopkins and Harry L.W. Hopkins, both of Bel Air; two grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
