Verna Jean Isaac, originally of Parkhill, passed away peacefully at Strathmere Lodge in Strathroy on Saturday, May 8, 2021, at the age of 99.
Jean is predeceased by her siblings, Greta McKewn, Maurice Isaac, Russell Isaac, Verda Isaac, Marion Mollard, Marguerite Thompson, Gladys Beierling, Dorothy Saunders, Gordon Isaac, and her parents William and Minnetta Isaac.
Jean really enjoyed her time with her extended family and will be missed by her many nieces and nephews both near and far. Family events and cottage visits with her sister Dorothy and family were among some of Jean's favourite past times. Jean was a talented musician who loved to play the piano, teaching herself to play by ear, with her preferred genre being country; and Jean loved singing along to the tunes, whether she knew the words or not.
A resident at the original Strathmere Lodge location, Jean enjoyed her time at Strathmere Lodge, spanning almost 50 years, getting to know staff, along with the residents on Parkview, who became her second family.
Due to the covid restrictions at this time, a private family graveside service will take place at the Arkona Cemetery. Rev. Mark Isaac will be officiating. Donations in memory of Jean are appreciated to the Strathrmere Lodge Recreation program, the Humane Society London & Middlesex, or a charity of your choice.
Arrangements are entrusted to M.Box & Son Funeral Home, 183 Broad Street in Parkhill 519-294-6382. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
