ISBISTER, Hazel Odava (Kroeber) Isbister, Obituary | Print |

ISBISTER, Hazel Odava (Kroeber) -

(1916 - 2015)

Appropriately on Valentine's Day (February 14, 2015) Mom slipped gently away just a little shy of her 100-year goal. Who can but celebrate 98+ years lived by a woman who said she was never bored a day in her life!

Mom was born blessed with physical beauty and became a person of great inner beauty as well. Raised in Ottawa, she moved to Toronto as a young woman where she had a brief but successful career as a model and fashion designer. There, she met and married the love of her life, Bob Isbister.

After the war (spent in Halifax as Bob was in the Navy) they settled in Hamilton and raised three daughters, Betty and 'the twins', Susan and Janet. They gave us an incredible up bringing, the Cleavers had nothing on us! We were the very definition of a happy family and only later did we realize that not everyone was as lucky as we were.

Mom involved herself in the community and kept busy with volunteer work at the Red Cross, Junior League and St. Paul's Church Auxiliary. When we were in high school, she started to "make mud pies" (Dad's joke) in the basement and attended Mohawk College to study ceramics, eventually becoming a founding member of the Hamilton and Region Potters Guild where she discovered a whole new world and enjoyed a wide circle of new friends.

In 1971, her beloved Bob died of cancer at only 56. Despite her deep sorrow, she recovered her enthusiasm for life and began a new chapter as one of the first to move into St. Elizabeth Village. She lived there for over 25 years cultivating even more friends. During this time she also travelled widely throughout North America and Europe.

Mom was always full of fun and in her later years many of her pals joined the "Hazel Nut Club" whose only mandate was to live life with a great sense of humour.

She always loved "going to the cottage" - whether her parents' place in Quebec or Algonquin with Bob and the girls or, more recently, Muskoka... she even made it briefly to Muskoka last summer in her wheelchair! For the past seven years she was living in Toronto near Betty and Susan at Wellesley Central Place. Here, the wonderful staff became her final circle of friends.

In accordance with Hazel's wishes, there will be no service. The family will celebrate her life at a later date but friends are encouraged to raise a glass and toast her life well lived. She lived her life with sparkle - full of mischief, adventure, kindness and generosity. Remembering Hazel will always bring a smile to the many who knew and loved her.

Hazel was predeceased by her brother Paul, sister Joan, husband Bob, son-in-law Bob Preston, and, very recently, her daughter Janet (Jim) MacKenzie. She leaves behind daughters Betty and Susan, grandchildren Kristi (Andrew) Riding, Kari (Tim) LaPensee, Rob and Meg MacKenzie and great grandchildren Katie, Kyra and Eric Riding and Sarah and Nicole LaPensee.

Because of her love of animals, a donation in her memory to your local Humane Society would be appropriate for anyone who wishes to do so.
