On April 25, 2012 Angels came to take our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother to her heavenly home and reunite her with the love of her life, her late husband, Edward.
Isabell, age 93, was born June 28, 1918 in Portage County. She was the daughter of the late George and Pauline (Modrzewski) Betro. Isabell was the last living member of her family.
She married Edward Herek on November 4, 1936 at St. Mary’s of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Fancher. After their marriage, the couple settled in the Town of Stockton. Her husband preceded her in death on October 10, 1995.
Isabell was a devoted Catholic and prayed the rosary daily. She was a lifetime member of the St. Mary’s Rosary Society.
She enjoyed gardening and flowers, doing arts and crafts, picture puzzles and playing cards. Her most precious time was visitng with her family and friends.
