She will be very missed. Fond memories of silly things like, stealing each others desert or a piece off each others plate.

The world is less bright now. I will miss her wonderful smile and sparkling eyes. We always looked forward to seeing Fran. Our thoughts are with her family at this time. We miss her.

The world is less bright today. I looked forward to seeing her sparkling eyes and her smile. When I first met Fran (only a few years ago), I said that I wanted to be like her when I grew up. She had an energy that lit up the room. We will miss her. Our thoughts go out to her family for their lose.

Community-focused and locally-inspired
Mitchell Funeral Home is committed to Huntsville Families

Few Muskoka businesses are as entrenched in the community as Mitchell Funeral Home. Ould Funeral Home was first established in the early 1900s, with Larry Mitchell’s family taking over in the 1930s. Larry is proud of this tradition and the fact that theirs is the only funeral home in Muskoka, from Sundridge down to Orillia, that is still family-owned and operated. “I think that’s what makes us so unique,” Larry explains. “You’re dealing directly with our family when you come to us and that creates a special kind of familiarity at a pivotal time.”
Supporting families through loss creates an immediate and often lasting intimacy with a funeral director. Over the years, the Mitchell family –Larry together with his wife Colleen and son Bill-have connected with countless local families through the generations, which is the continuation of a tradition that goes back decades. “Some local families are connected with us as far back as great and great-great grandparents.”
