  Paula, Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I too relocated to a warm climate two years ago. I just bought a house so it looks like I am staying. I miss not being in the CC for events like this so I could talk to you in person, but I don't miss the winter & humidity in the summer. I hope you are fine. If you get a chance you can email me at I would love to hear from my old neighbor. God Bless. Paul

  Paula, I am so sorry to hear of Issie's passing. She was such a sweetheart. She worked with my Mom (Gene Suino) at Pennys' but I knew her best when I worked at Waarala Drug Store. I ran the cosmetic department there and we had so much fun picking out things as "stocking stuffers" for you for Christmas. She'd tell me how you two would make a morning of opening the gifts... what a lovely memory. She was a very dear Lady. I would have liked to have made it to the funeral home but I wasn't able. Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  Our sincere sympathy to Paula on the passing of her mom, Isabelle. She always brought a smile to our faces with her quick wit. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know and enjoy her company.

  I first met Isabelle when, after a long ride from Larium, she hopped of the bus in Milwaukee and hopped right into my heart. There she has stayed for over thirty years and I became one of her "adopted daughters". Through the many trials that life sent her way she was always accepting, never complaining, trusting that things happened for a reason and always certain that, if you had a spare Hail Mary to throw her way, things would be fine! A woman of faith, she lived what she believed and was a powerful example to those who knew her and loved her. She will be sorely missed by Paula and family and also by those of us who had the privilege and the joy of knowing her.

  Isabelle "adopted" me with open arms, and I will always remember her loving and tender ways. Our visits to the Lourdes Shrine in Litchfield were very special to me, and I'm grateful that I was able to share these times with her and Paula. My deepest condolences to the entire family.

  My deepest sympathies to Paula and the rest of the family. I will always remember going to Penneys to visit my mom who also worked there and seeing "Auntie Izzy". She always had a smile on her face. She was just a beautiful person inside and out and she will be missed.

  We will miss our Auntie Issie very much. She was a woman of great beauty, inside and out, personal integrity and the utmost caring. Our lives are richer for having her in them.

  I loved Mama Belle like she were my own. She stole a piece of my heart like she did most anyone she met. "Everybody loves Issie". I'll miss Mama Belle and all the laughs, the hugs, the chocolate and the fun we had... and boy we did have fun! May you all find comfort in knowing how many lives Issie touched and how very special she was. She was truly a Saint and will be missed by all.
Love, Carol
