Isabelle CHRISTIE

CHRISTIE, Isabelle Passed away peacefully on October 2, 2017 after a wonderful 96 years. She leaves behind Jim, her beloved husband of 68 years, her children Douglas Christie (Jane) of Calgary, Fiona Christie (Asoka) and Patricia Belvedere (the late Mario), grandchildren Jessica (Mark), Laura and Dan, her great grandchildren Keely and Raegan, and her sister Chris Moppett. She was predeceased by her siblings James, Richard, Georgina and Alice and her grandchildren Mark and Rachael. A celebration of her life will be held at McKersie-Kocher Funeral Home on Friday. Isabelle was born in Scotland, brought up in Canada and returned to Scotland before World War II. She trained as a pharmacist and worked as the only women in a nitroglycerine lab, where she met her husband Jimmy. After the war she and Jimmy returned to Canada and settled in Deep River, where they worked for Atomic Energy. Isabelle loved life; dancing, camping, adventurous travel, cards and entertaining were among her passions. We will miss her beautiful blue eyes, her ever-present smile and her positive spirit. Thank you to Kelso Lake Medical Centre, the wonderful staff at Martindale Gardens and CCAC who cared for Isabelle so well. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the United Way of Halton and Hamilton.
