Channer, Marion 'Isabelle' (Andison)

September 15th, 2020

In peace on the morning of Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at Victoria campus of LHSC, in her 91st year. Isabelle was one of 14 children with 11 children of her own, so this might be a long read. Bear with me. Beloved wife of the late Beverly George Channer (1976). After 11 kids, you would think so! Much loved mother of the Channer Boys & Mary. In order from earliest to latest, Blaine (Sandy), Darcy (2004) (Marie), Peter (Trudy), Jeff, John (Marijo), Mark (Carol), Danny (Rose), Joel (1961), Mary (1999) (Paul Foster), Richard and Philip. Don’t feel bad about Mary, she always, always gave better than she got. 19 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. Whew! At 5 foot nothing and 95 pounds soaking wet, Isabelle was the strongest person, pound for pound, we’ve ever known. Dear sister of Ruby Dilts. Predeceased by her brothers William, Clinton, and Kenneth Andison, and her sisters Irene Greason, Gertie Agar, Alice Wilkinson, Helen Smith, Verna Thornton, Marjorie Taliana, Thelma Pleiter, Ruth Dutton, and Margaret Thornton. Isabelle was an aunt to over 60 nieces and nephews on both sides of her family. Cremation has taken place. There will be no funeral or memorial service, as per Isabelle’s wishes. A celebration of Isabelle’s life will be held whenever the current pandemic is over. We will see you all there! As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Ovarian Cancer Department at the London Regional Cancer Program, 747 Base Line Road East, London, ON, N6C 2R6, would be appreciated.

“Always in our hearts.”
