Obituary for Isabelle Boothby
BOOTHBY, Lillian “Isabelle” (nee Archdekin) of Charlton, Ontario. Suddenly at home on November 18, 2017. Isabelle was born September 17, 1928 on the family farm in Chinguacousy Township, daughter of the late James Archdekin and Isabelle McClure. Beloved wife of the late Rhodes Boothby (2010).
Survived by Rhodes’ daughters Sharon, Lynda and Suzanne and their families. Predeceased by Janet. Isabelle will be missed by Corey and Skira and family. Predeceased by her siblings Harold, Jeanette, Margaret, McClure, Tom, Bill, Lorene and Stanley. Aunt Isabelle will be fondly remembered by the Archdekin nieces and nephews.
Isabelle loved all music and enjoyed her time with the Leslie Bell Singers, playing the church organ or sitting down at the piano to play a medley of songs. She never turned down a euchre game and looked forward to her Legion card playing days. The family wishes to thank her neighbours and friends for all their acts of kindness that enabled Isabelle to stay in her home to the end.
