Isabel was a very sweet and generous person and I think most of the flowers in our yard came from her. I will always think of her when the Snowdrops come up in Feb.

I will always remember the love we shared as friend/daughter. Even thought I moved away from Indiana, I have thought of you often and enjoyed our visits whenever I was home. You are one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. I believe I got my love of flowers from you. Thank you so much for that. I will continue think of you often with smiles. Love, Weese (Louise Crider-Ferry

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Isabel. She was an amazing lady, and will be very missed. I, Kelsey, remember going to her house and visiting her with my grandma, Bette. I called her beautiful garden the secret garden, and loved taking a boutique home with me. My grandma Bette enjoyed Isabel's company, and always looked up to her. She loved sending her cards, and will miss her very much. We will be thinking about her and her family, and praying that her beautiful memory comforts everybody who knew her.

As I read the many memories of "Izzy" from her family and friends, I realize how lucky I was to have known her. Many years ago (36) when my first daughter was born I was fortunate to have received a plaque that Izzy made. On it was the poem "What Little Girls are Made of" with lots of flower petals from her garden.
I was blessed with 3 daughters, so that plaque hung many years in my home along with the

She was such a sweet lady. Sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss just doesn't seem adequate in this case. Our friend "Izzy" was a very special lady to all of us at Trinity. Her very presence lit up a room. She always had a hug and a kind word and helping hand to lend. Her beautiful smile and twinkling blue eyes are now taking in all the wonders of heaven. We will miss her, but are grateful for the example she set for us of how to

She was a great person. She loved everyone. I would change nothing about my experiences with her. She loved everyone with all her heart. I will miss all of her hugs and kisses. And the thing I miss the most are all of her smiles. Again she was a great women. I will miss all of the sad, happy, scary, and funny moments we had together.

As I slowly close my eyes, in wait of sleep, my mind wanders, into the deep. My heart explodes with rabid sorrow, as I dread what waits, tomorrow. I am not strong, as you always told me, I am a baby boy, who yearns for you to hold me. One more hug, wouldn't be enough, but at least we could try, and then say goodbye. The time has come, for me to stand alone, to live life without you, and

You have made so many lives brighter through your loving nature and warm heart. You had a way of making me feel special when I was around you, a smile, a hug or just something nice to say. I so enjoyed the time spent with you. You will truly be missed by me and so many others.
With love, Ken

Grandma I will always miss the frozen candy bars. I will never forget the time when Eli, Dom, Jake, and I hit the jackpot of clay by the wood bench. Another thing I will never forget is when you and I had our own little talk walking back to your house after walking in your garden. I know that it is not just me but I will miss every moment that we spent together and every sad, happy, or funny story that I was told. I will miss you grandma.
