YATES, ISOBEL VIRGINIA
It is with great sadness that the family of Isobel Virginia Yates (Dickison) announces her passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital on Tuesday, December 30, 2008 at the age of 77. Surrounded by her loving family, her fight for life to the very end was a true testament to the way in which she lived her life; voracious and with grace and dignity. Isobel was the daughter of the late Charles Daniel Dickison and Vivian (Gore) Dickison. She was a past member of the United Church Women of Canada and a member of Saint James and Saint John United Church in Miramichi. She was a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Phi and had recently received her 50 year pin. She was a past member of both the Miramichi Curling Club and the Miramichi Golf and Country Club. Isobel had a real zest for life - she was always found in the midst of people - laughing and talking about things of interest. She loved good conversation, good food and good coffee, no matter where she was. A friend to many, she touched and enriched the lives of all who had the pleasure of getting to know her. From a game of bridge, to going out to breakfast with her family, the joys in her life were simple, yet so thoroughly satisfying. Isobel leaves behind a very loving family, John (Cindy) of Rothesay, NB, Carolyn (Doug) Mullin of South Nelson, NB, Andrew of Quispamsis, NB; her four grandchildren, Nathan, Garrett, Lucas and Maggie; and several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Robert (Bobby) Dickison, and earlier this year by her husband of 49 years, Jack. When it came to the joys in her life, the grandchildren were definitely her focus. Nathan, Garrett, Lucas and Maggie were all loved and cherished by her and provided much enjoyment. Isobel will certainly be missed by her family and her friends, of which there were many. Thanks on behalf of Isobel are extended to those who graciously attended to her in her final days, including Dr. Gordon Hollway and the very special medical staff of 4CN and 5CN at the Saint John Regional Hospital. At Isobel's request, there will be no visitation at the Funeral Home. The funeral service will take place at the Saint James and Saint John's United Church in Miramichi on Friday, January 2, 2009 at 1 pm. In Isobel's memory, donations may be made to the Canadian Alzheimer's Society or a charity of one's choice. Arrangements are being made under the care of Bell's Funeral Home, 651 King George Hwy, Miramichi, NB, (506) 622-3600.
