Laura Jean Robinson

Laura passed away suddenly on June 20, 2018 in a tragic vehicle accident at the age of 44.

Loving mother of Morgan and Matthew Sallmen. She also leaves behind her parents John and Marjorie Robinson of Huntsville and one brother Michael and family from Libertyville,Illinois.

Laura worked in the x-ray department of the Huntsville Hospital for the past twenty years, where there will be a flower garden constructed in her memory.

At Laura’s request she was cremated and there will be a private family gathering on July 12th, which would’ve been her 45th birthday. She was an avid swimmer and had planned to swim across Fairy Lake on this day, in hope to beat her old record time. Her love of adventure and passion for activity, guided her throughout her life.

She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and coworkers.

My Dear Daughter Laura Jean:
Your never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you
A million times I've cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go a lone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home

Sincere sympathies to Laura's family. At this sad and trying time, keep God's sure promises in your hearts and minds. God’s Word says, "There will be a resurrection." Acts 24:15. Wishing you comfort and happy memories in the weeks and months ahead.

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.”
