Isabel lead a rich and rewarding life, she spoke with wisdom followed by acts of kindness. Her devotion to family and to her Catholic faith were the guiding light of her life. She was kind and generous with all who came to her door. She enriched the lives of so many. She was a true role model of caring, selflessness, and gentle humility. She knew who she was and where she was going.
This contributed to her peaceful demeanor quiet resolve and strength for which she will be remembered. Crocheting, cooking and baking delicious cookies were her favorite pastimes.
