We are very sadden by the passing of Barb. I have fond memories of always being welcome to Tom and Barb's home in Brockville when I lived in Ottawa. Her warmth and friendliness was so enduring. We had recently re-connected on Facebook and I enjoyed her comments and interests tremendously. I will miss our "online" chats.

Sending our thoughts to the family in this difficult time. Barb was our neighbour for the past 14 years. She was a wonderful lady who will be greatly missed. Love always Carol and Elton Clark.

To the family of Barbara - I am truly saddened by the passing of Barbara. I did not know her very long but the few conversations we had let me know what a kind lady she was. Her sense of humor and wit were wonderful. I will miss her as my neighour .

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time. Aunt Barbara was always a special favourite Aunt to me. When I was young and my parents would travel, I was able to live at the Mitchell home and we all shared such a great time. Aunt Barbara always sewed me lovely clothes. Aunt Barbara was always such a kind, fun, lovely lady who we all enjoyed so much. I also share many memories of how my Dad and Aunt Barbara could dance together with such talent. Aunt Barbara will be missed by many. She is now out of pain and at peace.
Much Love and Condolences to all the Mitchell Family ❤️
