Barbara was born in 1930 to Frank and Lois Davey, and grew up in the town of Vankleek Hill, Ontario. She spent her childhood summers at her grandmother’s cottage on Trout Lake (North Bay) which she loved dearly. She attended Branksome Hall girls school in Toronto for her Grade 12 year and then went on to get her nursing diploma at Toronto General Hospital.
Barb enjoyed travelling and after graduating she took the opportunity to spend a year nursing in Bermuda, after which she went on to work in London and travelled throughout Europe. Upon returning home Barbara landed a job with Alcan Aluminum in Montreal as a company nurse and it was there that she met the love of her life and future husband, Jim Mutchmor. They raised three children together in Montreal with summers spent near Perth Ontario, and enjoyed twenty happy years of retirement in Seeley’s Bay Ontario.
Barb loved going for long walks, spending time with her family, reading mystery novels, and of course a good cup of tea! She was a sweet and gracious lady who was always kind and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the doctors and nurses at the North Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for taking care of Barbara and especially to the crew in C1 who cared for Barb to the end.
