Heather Mitchell



Heather Janel Sands Mitchell, 42, of Sylva, was granted her angel wings on May 2, 2020.

In her final days she shared many laughs with friends and family.

She was born Jan. 4, 1978.

At her request, no service will be held. There will be a celebration of life at a later date.

If you needed something fixed whether it be electronic or a flat tire, Heather was just a phone call away. We hope God doesn’t allow her to get control of lightning or she will have just way too much fun!

Heather was preceded in death by her beloved grandparents, Eugene and Lula Tuthill; along with her sister, Josette Sands.

Heather is survived by her mother, Linda Lu Tuthill-Tutolo; stepdad, Rocco Tutolo; children, Jasmine and Jose Marcano-Sands; siblings, Michael Sands, Matthew Sands and Tammi Sands; stepsiblings Rocco Tutolo and Clinton Tutolo; an uncle, Eugene Tuthill; as well as nieces and nephews and many cousins.
