Bartie Bartlett Mumford

Born: 6/18/1935, Baltimore, Maryland
Death: 5/25/2018, Moab, Utah
Service: Pending

Bartie Mumford, 82, passed away at Canyonlands Care Center on May 25,. 2018 with her loving daughter and son-in-law by her side.

Bartie was the daughter of Helen Wehr Bartlett and Charles Martin Bartlett. With Eastern Shore roots going back to before the American Revolution, she was born in Baltimore, Maryland June 18, 1935 and grew up on the Chesapeake Bay where she was an avid and competitive sailor. She attended Bennington College in Vermont, but left it to follow her heart as a model, skier and equestrienne. She married Anthony Mumford of the Royal Air Force in Trinity Cathedral, Easton in 1959. As the wife of a fighter pilot, she lived throughout the British Empire. She later lived in France for 16 years before joining her daughter, Lowrey, and son-in-law, Matthew Sienkiewicz in Colorado and later, here in Moab.

Elegant yet vibrant, passionate and kind, she lived and died with dignity and determination. Loyal and dedicated, she lived by the words of her favorite poet, Robert Frost: “But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep.” The world is a dimmer place without her, but there is one more star in the sky. When she could no longer live in her home, she was fortunate to live at the Canyonlands Care Center for her last three years. Sharp as a tack to the end, she had close relationships with many of the staff, and knew she was fortunate to have their compassion and love. Her family feel so fortunate to have had access to such an exceptional facility.

At Bartie’s request cremation has taken place and there will be an informal celebration of her life; please contact Lowrey for information at

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to The Grand County Hospice or The Working Clumber Spaniel Society


Although we didn’t get to know you in person, we came to know you in spirit over the last decade through Lowrey & Matt. Your life appears to have been as amazing as your daughter has become. We thank you for giving us Lowrey!

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
