Isabel Jeffrey was born and raised in Sudbury. She began her long career in the health field working with the Grey Nuns at St. Joseph’s Hospital. As Distribution Supervisor, she transferred and opened her department in the newly built Laurentian Hospital. She received many accolades when she reached 50 years of service. Her enthusiasm, work ethic, and dedication to helping others continued until her later retirement at age 69. She then filled her days with volunteering at the hospital, various duties in her apartment complex, travelling, and listening to her favourite music. She had many talents which included baking, sewing, gardening, and keeping up with the Royals. A real fashionista, she was always dressed impeccably. Above all, Isabel was happiest spending time with family and friends. Her final years were spent at St. Joseph’s Villa where staff loved her like family. She continued her strong faith at the chapel, and participated in sing-a-longs and activities. Her wisdom, smile, laughter, and tender heart will be sadly missed but never forgotten. Special gratitude to the health care workers and staff at St. Joseph’s Villa.
