November 5, 1937 ~ July 21, 2017 (age 79)

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to mom, Isobel Clara HARTL.

Mom was an adventurous soul who lived life to the fullest.  She loved her whole family.

Mom was born November 5, 1937 to Harold Reuben and Clara Francis Maude Hamilton, in Dunville Ontario.  Mom was predeceased by her parents, brothers Basil, William, Herbert and her daughter Sheila.

She is survived by; her daughters Susan (Kevin) Gates, and families: Jonathon, (Dĕsirea) with Lillian, Ava & Leilani; Eduard, (Amanda) with Hailey & Joshua; Anthony, (Ashley) with Andrew,  daughter Donna (Wayne) Relke and families: Lisa, (Dan) with Samuel & Sophia; Cathy,(Neil) with Sawyer and daughter Cheryl, (Doug) Erickson and families: Jason, (Jessica), with Alexa, Marissa & Trevor; Jeremy, (Kelsey) with, Kori; Jess (Eli) with Xander & Mia.

When Isobel’s 8 grandchildren arrived she was the best grandma, then when the 13 great grandchildren arrived her heart grew bigger and she became the proudest and the best grandma ever.

Mom’s life adventures took her everywhere from walking the Great Wall of China to the tearing down of the Berlin Wall.  She was involved in countless groups and organizations. She always saw the good in everyone  - no matter what!

A big part of moms life was her Church Family, strong in her belief to the end.

Mom will always be with us.  We loved our mom, grandma and great grandma.
