Isabel Edna Glenna French


Isabel Edna Glenna French

The passing of Isabel Edna Glenna (MacDonald) French, wife of the late Clarence Douglas French, formerly of St. George NB, occurred at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB on September 21, 2023. Born in Doaktown NB on August 9, 1940, she was a daughter of the late Allen and Stella (Holmes) MacDonald.

A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister, Isabel is survived by her two children: Peggy (Lance) Matheson of St. Stephen NB and Douglas (Deb) French of Calgary AB; her grandchildren: Scott, Kristyn, Michael, Ryan, Erica, Brayden and Shaun; great-grandchildren: Rylee, Piper, Michaela, Ian and Hunter; one brother: Dale MacDonald of Sudbury ON; daughter-in-law: Gwen French of the Philippines; her sisters-in-law: Jacqueline French of St. George NB and Pearl French of St. Stephen NB; several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents and husband, Isabel was predeceased by one son: Dale French; and by brothers: Hartford, Louis and Manford.

Prior to retirement, Isabel worked for Connors Brothers in Back Bay for many years. A longtime member of the Sea View Full Gospel Church in Back Bay, where she was an active member of the Seniors Group, and also a member of the St. Croix Christian Centre in St. Stephen, Isabel truly loved all her church family and serving the Lord. She and Clarence loved to travel and spent many hours on the road. They ventured everywhere from across Canada, to Hawaii, and even to the Philippines where they assisted their son, Dale, in Missions. Isabel had a giving heart and a friendly smile, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
