Alexandra Mudry

Alexandra Mudry

Funeral Director

Allie came to Reynolds Funeral Home in September of 2019. Her career in funeral service began at the age of 17 when she started working first as a co-op student and then becoming a part-time funeral director’s assistant at a funeral home in Oakville, Ontario. Her love for the industry carried her through to Humber College and she became a licensed funeral director in July 2012. Allie lived for some time in Hamilton, Ontario with her husband Ben and it was the anticipated arrival of their first child, their son Raeden, that sparked an ever-growing energy to one day raise their family in a small-town community. After many years of vacationing in beautiful Muskoka, they knew that there could be no better place to start their new life’s adventure than here. They excitedly purchased their first home in November 2019 in Huntsville, Ontario.

Allie considers it an honour and privilege to once again work alongside a team of professionals who share in her passion for the industry.  A team of directors and staff who go above and beyond to meet families needs; and to work with a group of individuals who genuinely care for the families upon which they serve.  She very much looks forward to growing within the Bracebridge and surrounding communities of Muskoka.

During her time off from work, Allie enjoys working on home projects around the house; be it gardening, or just cutting the lawn she loves to be outside in the summer and very much enjoys a good thunderstorm once in a while. During the winter months, Allie enjoys crafting; making dream catchers is a specialty of hers as well as various other homemade goods for the house. Most of all, she simply enjoys spending time with her family.


David Bond

David Bond

Funeral Director

David grew up in Woodstock alongside his two sisters with their parents who were high school teachers.  David remembers always being under the watchful eye of many teachers throughout his formative years. Every summer David looked forward to travelling with his family to spend time with Nana Bond in Nova Scotia, at the family cottage. Many treasured memories were spent around camp fires, card games at the neighbour’s cottage and water fun including boating.

When David was in high school, his dad died of leukaemia and his encounter of grief began. Then lost his first wife to cancer in 2010 and in March 2019 his mom died. David found his present wife Marsha who also lost a spouse early in life. In 2012, David and Marsha were married and each felt they needed to do something together. David’s daughters are both living independently abroad, both of whom he is very proud of.

David worked as a funeral assistant while living in Southern Ontario and wanted to become a funeral director.  After attending Humber College’s open house, both David and Marsha became Team Bond and began attending Humber College as students in September 2015.  Together they arrived in Muskoka, the Spring of 2016, to complete their internships. David became a licensed funeral director, during the summer of 2017, after passing his licencing exams.

Hospitality is very important to Team Bond and they enjoy helping others, connecting with friends, attending the Bracebridge Salvation Army Community church and giving back to grieving families in Muskoka.



Marsha Bond

Marsha Bond

Funeral Director

Growing up on a family dairy farm in Haldimand County, Marsha enjoyed working with the holstein cows but also the summer chores alongside her father and uncle.  To this day, the smell of freshly cut hay, the sound of a tractor or the sights of cows grazing in a field takes her back to fond memories on the farm.

 

Marsha has had many loved ones who she has cared for and said goodbye to. She watched her mother, father, and first husband each fight battles with cancer. Throughout her own grief journey she has needed the help of local funeral directors, professional counsellors and the support from her family, friends and community.

 

Before becoming a funeral director, Marsha was an elementary school teacher for fifteen years with Grand Erie District School Board after realizing that life experiences were leading her to the funeral industry. Together, with her husband David, they decided to each make a career change and become licensed funeral directors. As Team Bond, they attended Humber College the Fall of 2015, then arrived in Muskoka as interns during the year of May 2016 to May 2017 and by the Summer 2017, Marsha became a licensed funeral director.

 

Hospitality is very important to Team Bond and they enjoy helping others, connecting with friends, attending the Bracebridge Salvation Army Community church and giving back to grieving families in Muskoka.
