Good-bye to a dear Lakeside neighbor, Isobel Steele

Isobel C. Steele, age 99, of Wickliffe, passed away March 2, 2017. She was born in Cleveland, on July 19, 1917, to the late Dan and Mayme McKay. She was a proud and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was a long time member and served faithfully at Wickliffe Presbyterian Church. Isobel found great joy with her family when they gathered at a family cottage at Lakeside. Isobel is survived by her children, Bonnie (Bob) Schilling, Scott (Carol) Steele; grandchildren, Neil Schilling, Lori Schilling, Julie Steele, Eric Steele, Jennifer (David) Eberly and Brian Steele; great grandchildren, McKenzie, Madison, Alex, Hunter, Isobel, Ian and Taylor. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 64 years, Clyde Steele; sister, Jean Johnson; nephew, Jeff Johnson. (Legacy)

We bought our Lakeside home in the fall of 1988 and although the season was over, we met Clyde and Isobel and enjoyed them through the years along with their son Scott and wife Carol who are there most of the summer and their daughter Bonnie who comes each summer for a visit.  And over the years we watched the grandchildren grow up and have children of their own now enjoying the Lakeside community and the 19th century Steele cottage.

A blog I wrote about Clyde with a photo of Isobel and Clyde raking leaves in the fall.

I am sorry for the loss of your friend. May God bless her and keep as He takes her into His loving embrace, and may He comfort all of those who knew and loved her in their grief.
