Obituary for Barbara Mitchell

Barbara Mitchell passed away peacefully on March 19, 2019. She was 102 years old.
Born in Spokane, Washington, Barbara went to Hawaii in the early 1940’s. She fell in love
with the islands and decided to make Hawaii her home for the rest of her life.

A high school teacher, she taught English and creative writing for years. She was an avid
reader and life-long learner. She loved the climate and would often play tennis, swim in the
ocean and take long walks around Honolulu. She regularly reported to her family that she was not inclined to return to the rainy Northwest.

Barbara married for the first and only time at the age of 76. She and her husband, Jack Mitchell,
enjoyed sixteen years together. They traveled all over the world and had many wonderful
adventures. Their beautiful wedding vows were a testament to the love and respect they had for each other.

Barbara is survived by several nieces and nephews. They all loved her sense of humor and sharp wit. She will be missed by all. Private services will be held in the mainland.
