Trubie Mitchell's family suggests that memorial gifts be made to the following three recipients.
The Martha Washington Inn in Abingdon, formerly Martha Washington College, attended by Trubie's wife Mary prior to her enrollment at Emory & Henry.
To donate to the Wiley Henry Scholarship Fund, go to Emory & Henry's online gift form, specify the “Wiley Henry Fund,” and list the gift as in memory of Trubie Mitchell.
Trubie and Mary Mitchell supported the Wiley Henry Scholarship Fund, established to honor the “Martha Girls” who came to Emory, and the relationship between E&H and Martha Washington College. Mary attended “Martha” prior to its closing during the Great Depression, at which point she transferred to Emory & Henry, and was graduated in 1933. Trubie was graduated from Emory & Henry in 1934.
The scholarship is named for Mr. Wiley Henry, long-time employee of Martha Washington College and the Martha Washington Inn.
