Mittie Bass was born May 8, 1962, in Demopolis, Alabama, to the late Moses and Hattie Bass. Her family relocated to Detroit, Michigan.
Mittie was then educated in the Detroit public school system. She also went to a carpentry trade school and received a certificate in carpentry.
Mittie confessed Christ at an early age. She attended New Zion Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late Pastor Jimmie Lee Burnett. She served faithfully on the usher board. After reaching adulthood, Mittie moved to Medina, Ohio.
In Medina, Mittie was a member of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor John R. Peterson. She faithfully served the Lord as an usher and became head of the usher board.
Mittie had many unique ways about her. She loved playing spades, video games, board games, and didn’t mind telling you a piece of her mind. She was one of the realist (as folks would say.) Two of her favorite sayings were, “Don’t call shaft cause shaft ain’t moving,” and “I sure thank the Lord for this meal, cause I sure didn’t know where it was come from.”
