Isobel was a career teacher with the Winnipeg School Board. For manyyears she was the supervisor of Home Economics education. My wife Joycerecalls that it was a significant event when Miss Robson came to visitthem in Home Ec. class. When Joyce and I were married in Winnipeg itwas Isobel who held the post rehearsal reception at her apartment inDevon Court on Broadway Avenue. She had a keen interest in familyhistory. She was very proud to own a gateleg table made by John S.Laidlaw of Vancouver. She had spent I think several hundred dollars tohave it restored, prior to 1955.
When I first moved to Winnipeg in 1953, I was entertained to dinner at anice restaurant by Isobel and her first cousin Bessie Black.
When Isobel gave up her apartment, Bessie looked after the table andsubsequently when Bessie gave up her apartment,( both went to live in thenursing home on Poseidon in Winnipeg, but at diffenrent times) thenBessie passed the table on to me, as the one in the family who seemed tohave the most interest in family history. I became the proud owner ofthe table in September 1986.
At the age of about 50 Isobel had problems with rheumatoid arthritis.At this time steroid therapy was introduced, but of course there are sideeffects which greatly bothered her.
In here later years she was essentially bed-ridden, and much of this timein hospital, she died in her 89th year.
Her favorite nephew was Paul, and he was fo course in the public eye asgeneral manager of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at that time.
