Dear Cheryl and Bryan,
I am SO very sad to hear that your Mother passed away.
I just now found out, had not heard before. I always
enjoyed the times I spent with her, but had lost touch.
My parents always loved your Mom, as well.
Deepest condolences, your cousin Ronna

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.”
