Sandra Harris Mitchell died peacefully at her home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on December 29, 2020, at the age of 81.

She was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Harris of Warrenton and attended The Calvert School, graduated from Warrenton High School, Penn State University and The Ecole hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland. Her life was spent serving as a teacher and administrator. She was the headmistress of Highland School for several years and taught at Wakefield School.
