Isabelle Carpenter (1926 - 2002)

Isabelle Carpenter Isabelle Carpenter passed away unexpectedly on October 14 and is lovingly remembered by the many far flung Carpenters who have come together on Magnetic Island in her memory over the past week. The following poem was written in memory of Isabelle by daughter-in-law Thalie Carpenter.

Isabelle

She woke up every morning
In the arms of her man
And the birds were singing
There was joy in her heart
With a lightness and warmth in her soul
She greeted the days

The laughter of children
The green-ness of trees
A clear blue ocean
Are life's remedies

Her spirit we're sharing
As we stand here today
Of her smile we're thinking
And the warmth we shared
She was so special and fine
We'll miss her so

The laughter of children
The green-ness of trees
A clear blue ocean
Are life's remedies

By Thalie

What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
