She was born November 12, 1927 in Michigan, and graduated with a teaching degree from Michigan State University. She was married to Jack Garner in 1948 and together they enjoyed 67 years of marriage.

She was predeceased by her husband Jack Garner in 2016.
Residing in St. Augustine for over 25 years after moving from Jeffersonville, IN, Isabel continued to substitute teach in St. Johns County schools and was a longtime member of Grace United Methodist Church. She had many friends and was actively involved in many local groups including the St. Gerard House; the Red Hat Society; and the Garden Club. Throughout her life she enjoyed entertaining, playing cards with friends, was a wonderful cook and an accomplished writer. She was a terrific storyteller and was especially loved for her clever and witty poems - especially her Listen to Your Granny and Christmas poems - that she penned for family, friends and all her knew her.
Isabel was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and dear friend to many and will forever be remembered for her quick wit, kind heart and sincere generosity.
