Charles died as a search and rescue volunteer flying in a military twin otter in June 1986. Isobel worked at Woodwards from 1963 until 1988 making many long-time connections with coworkers and customers. Family and friends were always important. Mum celebrated the arrival of every one of her grandchildren and great grandchildren; always remembering everyone's birthdays. Isobel cherished every family gathering to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. Isobel loved playing bridge and helping out with the Heritage Seniors and the Royal Canadian Legion. She always said that if you want to have a healthy brain, play bridge. Isobel was a member of the St Andrew's Presbyterian Church congregation and loved the companionship on Sundays and special events. Mum loved to travel, whether it was cruises to Alaska and the Caribbean, tours of Scotland and England or even a Sunday drive in the country. She had a heart of gold and her blue eyes would light up when a family member or friend would appear at her door. Memorial donations may be made to the United Way. Isobel's life will be celebrated at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (703 Heritage Drive SW) on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at 2:30 pm,
