Margueritte 'Mitzi' Barker

November 1, 1930 — February 2, 2024

Mitzi (Mylan) Barker

Mitzi Barker passed into the arms of her Lord February 2, 2024 in Spokane, Washington. She was born November 1, 1930, in Jamestown, North Dakota, to Paul and Virginia Mylan. Her official name was Margueritte Caroline, but everyone knew her as Mitzi. Her early years were spent growing up in Jamestown.
During World War II the Family moved to Vancouver, Washington for work in the shipyards there. Mitzi then graduated from Fort Vancouver High School.
On May 23, 1960 Mitzi married Bill Barker, who was her life partner for 42 years. Together they lived and worked in Seattle, Washington until retirement in 1972. Then life got very interesting as they traveled the West Coast and worked. Places included Three Rivers, California; Hemet, California; Oak Harbor, Washington; Yucca Valley, California; and even a summer at Teton National Park. They spent 15 years in Henderson, Nevada as Bill headed security at Hoover Dam and Mitzi managed a thrift store. In all these places Mitzi made close friends and got involved in her community. When widowed, Mitzi moved to Spokane, Washington, to be closer to family.
Mitzi was a creative, artistic person. But her real love in life was her family, most especially her children and grandchildren.
Mitzi is survived by her daughter, Cathy (Bruce) Shields and step-son Bill (Sis) Barker. She has five grandchildren: Julie (Kevin) Johnson, Gina (Steve) Lincoln, Lisa (Jason) Graham, Kristen (lan) Hinton, and Rob (Jillian) Shields. Mitzi was blessed with 11 great grandchildren.
