Not sure this is who are you looking for but in the 1930 census for McKeesport, there is a Rachel Mitchell (husband Abraham). One of her sons was Michael.

According to Michael's obit, his mother's maiden name was Abboud.

"Mitchell
Michael “Matt” Mitchell, 91, formerly of McKeesport, died Dec. 2, 2003. Born in Grand Rapids, Mich., he was the son of Abraham and Rachel (Abboud) Mitchell."

There is a family tree on Ancestry that has her birthplace as Tartus, Syrian Arab Republic; however, there is no documentation attached to support that. That same family tree has her death as May 5 1979 but the Social Security death index has it as February 1, 1979 and the obituary in the Pittsburgh Press supports the February date.
