Barbara Mitchell Obituary and Memorial

During these times of isolation, it is more difficult when we lose loved ones – the inability to hug and be with each other is disappointing. 

Barbara Louise Mitchell, a longtime member of Omaha Artists Inc. and a well-known artist, entered into the loving arms of her Savior on April 17, 2020. She was preceded in death by parents, Lydia & Daniel Meyer and husband Marion D Mitchell. She is survived by her children, Jim Mitchell, Dan (Kathie) Mitchell, Patricia (Roger) Kirkpatrick, Rob (Sara) Mitchell, nine grandchildren, and 22 great grandchildren. Aside from her family, Barbara’s great joys were her church family, her PEO sisters, Omaha Artists Inc friends, and Extension gals. A celebration of Barbara’s life will be held at a later date (to be announced) and she will be interred in her beloved mountains.
