Mary Beth Hartill

February 10, 1968 — April 12, 2023


Mary Beth passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, at Andy's House, Hospice Muskoka in Port Carling after a brief battle with cancer. She was 55. Mary Beth was born in North Bay to Carol and the late Jim Hartill (2020) on February 10, 1968. Dearly loved sister to Stephanie and special aunt to Cameron and Paige Ballard. As a reporter to Metroland for 15 years, she was well-known for her integrity, compassionate nature and for being a strong advocate for her community. She spent her spare time close to nature and could be found enjoying the outdoors sleeping in her tent in the forest by the river, paddling her kayak with her dog, Duncan in his lifejacket keeping watch up front, or enjoying the company of her friends at a cottage or park, or taking a road trip with Cameron and Paige.

A celebration of Life Service will be held at Reynolds Funeral Home, 1 Mary St, Bracebridge, on Friday April 21st, at 11:00am, followed by a reception to share our stories of Mary Beth. Memorial donations may be made to Andy's House, Hospice Muskoka or All Heart Pet Rescue, Powassan.

We encourage you to share photos, personal condolences and memories here.
