  • Notes 
    • Midge “was the 11th of 12 children and the first one born in a hospital. She was named after two nuns/nurses. Midge was a Mead High School graduate. She worked for Mutual of Omaha for many years retiring in 1992. She married Marvin Smith and had five children. Then she met and married Robert Barsness. They shared 36 happy years celebrating life to the fullest. She enjoyed traveling, especially to Montana to visit family. Her time at Loon Lake with family was special to her. She was a true inspiration to her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed the simple things in life like listening to Elvis, gardening, Mexican food, chocolate and watching the Seahawks, Mariners, Cougs and Zags and most of all, laughter.” [1]
