She was very happily married to the love of her life Clyde Tilman Isbell Sr. for over 55 years. Mom and Dad were members of the Austin Roadriders Motorcycle Club for over 20 years and traveled the United States like easy riders on two wheels.

One of her favorite sayings when she saw motorcycles with a smile on her face was, “That should be me and dad.”

She was a member of the Eastside Baptist Church in Gonzales. She loved her Lord and church family. They loved seeing her walk in with her beautiful smile, hands raise in praise and worship. Her smile and sense of humor will be greatly missed.
