Mittie is survived by her son, Mahlon Exum and wife, Linda, of Missouri; grandchildren, Jordan and Oteria; great-granddaughter, Brynn Monet; and sister-in-law, Mamie Exum.

She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, many close friends and extended family, including the children and grandchildren of the late Richard and Gladys Gray.

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Bizzell was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Bizzell, and her two brothers, George Exum and Paul Exum Jr.

We would like to give a very special thank you to the wonderful staff at Life Care in Rocky Mount for the love and care it provided for Mittie during her final days. Simple words cannot express our gratitude.

Also a thank you to the caregivers at Goldsboro Assisted Living and Wayne Memorial Hospital who cared for Mittie over these past years.
