Isobel Ethel Elizabeth Fenton (nee Allan) of Bottrel, AB, passed away at the Didsbury Long-term Care Facility on December 11, 2008 at the age of 92 years.
She was predeceased by her loving husband Elmer in 1996 after 62 years of marriage, her father in 1938, her mother in 1953, her brother Alvy in 1977 and seventeen brothers and sisters-in-law. Isobel will be forever loved and missed by her family; Sons, Buster, Jim (Joanne), John (Joanne), Alan (Debbie); Daughters, Janette (Dave) Whittle, Donna (Gary) Smith, Marlene (Bob) Phillips; nineteen Grandchildren, fifteen Great-grandchildren and sister-in-law Louella Beadle.
Isobel was the daughter of Alberta and Malcolm Allan, pioneers of the Bottrel District. Isobel attended Old Westbrook School and took high school in Cochrane. In 1934 she married Elmer Fenton and they settled near her parents homestead in the Bottrel area. Isobel was a woman to whom family meant everything. She had boundless energy and worked beside Elmer to raise their family and run the farm. Her cooking and baking skills were only surpassed by the enjoyment they brought to those lucky enough to sit down at her table. Isobel was a homemaker in the truest sense.
The family expresses its sincere appreciation to the staff of Cochrane Big Hill Lodge and the Didsbury Long-term Care Unit 4 for the excellent care given to our mother in the past three years.
