It is with an extremely heavy heat that Isabelle passed away after a long battle with DIPG on July 9, 2022 surrounded by her mom, dad and sisters.
Isabelle was a bright person, full of energy, and enjoyed being active. She was the type of person who liked to keep busy and go on adventures. Isabelle loved riding with her father on his motorcycle and being out in nature. Just before her illness, Isabelle hiked a one-thousand-foot mountain, Mt. Willard, in New Hampshire. Isabelle also enjoyed training Martial Arts with her father.
Isabelle was a thrill seeker who loved all amusement park rides. Her family remembers Isabelle going on the Tower of Terror and laughing at how scared the teenagers were when she was only four. Those things didn’t scare Isabelle, she thrived on it. Isabelle, also, loved horror movies. She would analyze and critique them, always knowing what was going to happen and who did what. She always pointed out plot holes and predict the endings. Isabelle was a movie and television connoisseur. She and her parents would watch everything together. Her all-time favorite television show was “Stranger Things”. After her diagnosis, the Make-A-Wish Foundation made it possible for Isabelle to meet Millie Bobby Brown, who stars in “Stranger Things” as Eleven.
Through all the difficulties Isabelle experienced recently, she never lost her innate gifts of kindness, love, and selflessness. Isabelle was always making sure that others were happy and comfortable. She would often check on the wellbeing of her family members, buy gifts for loved ones and read to her little sisters.
Isabelle was a collector of many things, some of which included pop sockets, horror blankets, wrestling action figures, movies and FYE memorabilia. When home spending time with her family, Isabelle liked to journal, keep up with wrestling, and play with her pets, Freyja and Ragnar, as she adored all animals. Isabelle was described as an overall “kick-ass-kid”. She was sassy, direct, compassionate, strong, genuine, and passionate about life. The most important part of her life was to be with her mom, dad, and sisters. Isabelle’s life has left a lasting impression on all the lives she touched.
