CLAREMONT, Isobel  - Isobel Claremont passed away at home in Port Perry on Friday, June, 21 2019 at the age of 92.

She will be missed tremendously by her daughter Celine, and son in-law Dan, as well as extended family and friends.

Isobel was a special individual who made a positive impression on everyone who crossed her path.

She was a generous and giving person who seldom, if ever, complained.

She always had a good word for everyone, and was upbeat and pleasant, even when in excruciating pain. Isobel lost her husband of 64 years Roger, several years ago, and that left a huge void in her life.

But she always remained positive, spending countless hours watching TV with Celine or reading with her dog Sookie by her side.

Over the past three months, Isobel was bedridden, and her health declined rapidly. The doctor, nurses, and personal service workers came to the house and provided her with excellent care. During those visits one thing became abundantly clear, they recognized how special Isobel really was, and bonds of friendship were immediately established. 

When notified of her passing, many offered kind words, and described how this frail Scottish senior had touched their lives.  Isobel was a modest women, who went through life with a kind word and a smile. She was by no means financially wealthy, but it didn’t matter.

Her currency was her character, and the way she treated and loved people. Isobel always left everyone feeling good about themselves, friends and strangers alike.  She will be missed dearly. 

A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.

Donations in honour of Isobel may be made to the Scugog Humane Society or the Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham.
