In addition, to raising her children, Isabelle was an active member of the St. Joseph’s of the Palisades parish in West New York, NJ and the Cub Scouts as a Den mother. When the family moved to Caldwell NJ, Isabelle became active member of Caldwell Peace and other peace related groups. Isabelle explored many philosophies and religions on her journey through this life. Her thirst for knowledge and serenity was only rivaled by her willingness to be of service to others. Isabelle continued to seek ways to help people by becoming a Nurse (LPN) She worked with the elderly at St. Catherine of Siena Healthcare Center on the campus of Caldwell College and later helping clients at Turning Point, a Drug and Alcohol rehab facility in Cedar Grove, NJ. She retired but continued to acquire knowledge and learn. One of her favorite places was the Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center in Washington, NJ. A voracious reader, she could often retell a novel with gripping accuracy well into her 80s.
