So sorry to read Isobel's death noice in today's Press in Christchurch. We first met Isobel and John through the Sumner School for Deaf as it was called back in the 60s/70s then later while working at Hammersley Park School, eventually as Principal after John retired. Our love and thoughts go out to you all at this sad time. Ian and Stephanie.

Prayers and thoughts with family and friends. I enjoyed Isobel's friendship during her long association with Holy Family Church.

We remember Isobel/Aunty Isobel with fondness as a gracious lady with a great love for her family, a lovely sense of humour and a delightful laugh. Thinking of you all at this sad time.
