Isabelle Brundage



Hi, my name is Isabelle Brundage.  I am 94 years young.  I was born and raised in Sabula, Iowa.  My father was killed in an automobile accident when Mom was left with 9 small children.  I had 4 brothers and 4 sisters.  I have one sister remaining.

I met my husband in Sabula,  He worked on a farm.  He joined the Army and after a few places, we settled in Sabula.  After his discharge (from the Army), he worked for the Milwaukee Rail Road.  We were the parents of seven children; four children are deceased; and I have three daughters remaining, Sandra and Kristi (Sabula), and Tanya (Fairfax).

In my later years, I worked at Lakeside Motel cleaning and at East Central School in the kitchen.  I loved to shop, camp, and being with my family.  I have 22 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren.
