Isabel was an avid gardener; card player, quilt maker and excellent cook; who loved Nortena Music and dancing. She provided the strength and foundation for the family, bringing all of us together even under the most tragic and challenging times. Her home was the center of family gatherings and celebrations.

Isabelís unconditional love, wisdom and patience will be solely missed. Her beautiful soul and spirit will remain with us, helping us to live with the same joy, forgiveness and grace she shared.
