Carlie Isaacson 1931-2009 Carlie passed away on 9/4/09 at age 78. It was in the Lord’s timing, but for her family it was far too soon. Carlie held strong opinions and was a great woman of faith and devotion, which she expressed with vigor until the day she died. She welcomed people as family, loved her family deeply, laughed easily, and cried even easier. But Carlie has no cause for tears any longer: with her children at her bedside, she went to be with the Lord Jesus and her beloved husband. Carlie is preceded in death by her sister LaVonne, son Bart and husband Olie, and is survived and missed by her brother Greg (Nancy) Morris, children Mark (Kathy), Eric (Melodie), Sharon (Dave) Buss and Bryan, 13 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
