Biography: Barbara Ann Mort, age 72 of Littlestown, PA entered into her eternal rest Saturday evening, May 21, 2022 after a 2 month bout with Pancreatic Cancer.  She was surrounded by her loving family and closest friends.  Barbara was born December 24, 1949 in Gettysburg Pennsylvania to the late John Moose and Mildred Patterson.  For 53 of her 72 years, she was the high school sweetheart and soul mate of her husband Edward Mort and for 48 years Mom to Jason Mort (Rachel) of York PA and Jodi Lamer (Jason) of Uniontown PA.  In 1996 she was upgraded to Gammie to Alexia Mort (Kirby) followed by Jaron Lamer (Anna), Jalyn Mitchel (Eli) Jordyn Lamer, Landon Mort and Nathan Mort.  For 2 of those years, she even served as a Great Gammie to Kirby (Kaj) Beccio.  In addition to immediate family, Barb is survived by her brother Gary Arter of  South Carolina, Helen Arter of Littlestown PA who is her sister through marriage, nephews Barry Arter (Celena) of Littlestown PA & Gary Arter of Littlestown and many close friends.
Barbara was a true and loyal wife, mother, and friend.  Her life was defined by giving gifts of time, thought and encouragement.  Her closest friends were those she met at work and with whom she had the privilege of spending extra time.  After marrying her high school sweetheart, she spent time working as a waitress, bank teller and Community Aid member.  Barb was the proverbial social butterfly that knew no stranger.  So much so that even strangers heard how proud she was of her family. 
Barb was preceded in death by her special in laws, Harold & Catherine Mort.  There will be a Memorial Service on Thursday, May 26 @ 7pm at Bethel Assembly in Littlestown with a time of fellowship and remembrance to follow.  Online condolences may be shared on
