Mitchell moved to Chicago in 1919 at the age of 7, with her mother and her sister. Shortly after, she witnessed the Chicago race riot of 1919, which happened during the Red Summer. When it began, she was staying on the South Side with her uncle.

Mitchell had at least two children (including Mary Muse (aged 68 in December 2021)). She drove until age 96.
