I had the privilege of working with Isabelle (and Bill) for many years. First through Girl Scouts and later when we worked together for the Union Area School District. She was a good friend and extremely brilliant and great at any undertaking. My sympathy to her family.

It was my privilege to meet Isabelle when the Secular Franciscans gathered at Villa Maria. Her daughter, Pat, would bring her at the end of our day's meeting to pray together at the celebration of Mass. Be assured of my prayers for Isabelle and you, her beloved family. May the Risen Lord embrace her and hold her close to His Sacred Heart.
