With deep sadness we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend. She passed away peacefully in Jubilee Manor leaving us to join her beloved husband George. Born in Sullivan Lake, Alberta and schooled in Fleet, Alberta, Isabelle moved to Grand Forks in 1932 with her parents and three brothers.
Isabelle moved to Rossland and married George on September 12, 1937. In 1946, the family of five moved to the North Shore in Nelson where the (last but not least) two sons were born. Isabelle is survived by one sister-in-law Bernice Jensen; son Calvin (Mable) Kevin and Lana; Keith (Marianne) Kim and Jaime; Dawn (Bob) Aaron; Lewis (Wendy) Lori and Tammy; Monty (Judy) Jeremy; as well as ten great grandchildren and one great great grandchild and many nieces and nephews of the Jensen/Frederiksen Families. Isabelle managed the family farm and orchard and she was very active in the Fairview United Church and the former North Shore Community Hall. She served two terms on the Nelson School Board of Trustees in the 1950’s and in her spare time would billet summer bonspiel participants.
We are especially grateful to the staff at Jubilee Manor who cared for mom in the last five years of her life. She loved a good political discussion or joke and was a go-to person for family and friends.
A celebration of life will be held Monday, March 24, 2014 at 10:00 AM from the Chapel of Thompson Funeral Service with Rev. David Boyd officiating. As an expression of sympathy family and friends may make donations in Isabelle’s memory to the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation or to Jubilee Manor.
