I remember Isabelle walking in our neighborhood and talking to all the kids. She knew all the presidents and knew all the neighborhood kids names. She was a sweet and loving soul. My father was her physician for many years and we lived up the street from Isabelle and her family. She taught our family alot and we thank her for those special gifts.
Love and prayers,
Julie Hess Lyons.
Isabelle was a faithful and hard worker at ODC, well read and a joy to know. I was so blessed to know her. She will be missed by many. Prayers for her family.
