Predeceased by husband Carl Granter; parents Thomas and Florrie Badcock; brothers Elmer (Trixie), Jesse (Mary), Gordon, Hubert and sister Ina Stratton (Bill).
A true matriarch, Isabel drew strength, inspiration and happiness by giving so selflessly of herself and championing the successes of her family from the sidelines. A sharp and acerbic wit, Isabel could size up a room in thirty seconds and whatever views or reflections she had, let’s just say she would never leave you guessing. These little peccadillos underscored a fiercely proud mother and grandmother who lived life on her own terms, with strong moral values and asked nothing in return. Simply stated, Isabel lived life, “Nanny’s Way” and she will live forever through her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The family expresses its sincere gratitude to all of the healthcare providers at Tiffany Village who were so compassionate and caring with Mom, Thank you! Due to COVID-19, there will be no visitation. In accordance with Mom’s wishes, a cremation has taken place. The Family will gather at a later date to celebrate her life.
