Barbara Anne Mitchell (Currie) passed away peacefully at the Brantford General Hospital March 6, 2020. Beloved wife to Steven Mitchell and loving mother to Christopher, Shawn, Stephanie (Eric) and Brittany Mitchell. Daughter of Teresa and the late Cyril Currie, sister to Cyril Jr. (Brenda), Mark (Wendy daughters Ashleigh and Amanda), Martin (Mimma).
Her smile lit up any room, her heart was so big and her kindness spread like wildfire.
A true Cape Bretoner, born and raised until moving to Brantford, ON with her family. She enjoyed the music of down East - even danced with the Rankin Family once. Her family was her everything and she worked hard always to give them everything - most importantly passing down her compassion, love and strength.
The one I married, together we became one. We’re nearly 39 years so happy as one. My heart is broken. You will be sadly missed, ‘til we meet again when we will walk together as one. The love you gave us caring for our family. I love you my loving wife Barbara. Wherever I go you will be by my side. Love always, Steven. I love you.
Mom, thank you for bringing us up to be the people we are today. You were the strongest, bravest person we know. You were our role model, anchor, supporter and motivator being there for us no matter what. You will forever be in our hearts and with us through our lives as our guardian angel. You’ve made a huge imprint on so many lives. Everyone will miss your smile and kind heartedness. We love you Mom.
A special thank you to Barbara’s beloved aunt and uncle Leona and Art Bushnik in Cape Breton for all the prayers, love and support during Barbara’s illness. Rest in peace our beautiful Barbara Anne. Love Mom and family.
Family and friends are welcome to attend the graveside service at St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery, 388 St Paul Ave, Brantford on Monday March 16th, 2020 at 2:00pm.
May God bless her and keep her.
