Isabel was a 50 year resident of Manteca and attended Lathrop Christian Center. She enjoyed a day out shopping looking for the best deals around town or relaxing watching dramatic scenes from her Novella’s. She had a joyful heart when listening to Christian music. Isabel was a collector of many things but her most favorites were her angels and wind chimes. Among Isabel’s enjoyments, her true delight in life was her grandchildren. She truly cherished the time she spent with them, as she loved each of them unconditionally. She will be remembered as a loving mother, an amazing grandmother and a wonderful sister. Her devotion to God and her family will never be forgotten. She will be deeply missed.
