Obituary of Isabelle MacWilliam

Lorraine Isabelle MacWilliam

December 26, 1942 - November 19, 2019


Isabelle is the daughter of the late Betty and Alex MacWilliam.  She is the beloved sister of Sandra McBride (David) and aunt of their sons Michael, Dwight (Yuka) and Niall (Evelyn).  She will be missed by her sister, Ann (Robert), their sons Stephen (Chantal) and Bryan.  Lorraine is the great-aunt of Isabella, Michael, Abigail, Henry and Wyatt.


Following a stimulating travel career as an airline stewardess in the USA, Isabelle embarked on a longer work life with both the Canadian federal and Ontario governments. Upon retirement from the Ontario Attorney General's Office in 1993, Isabelle built a beautiful, "state-of-the-art" home on Lake Ontario in Cobourg as a retirement project. After ten years she moved back to her beloved Toronto at Yorkville. With great sadness, her family and friends say goodbye to a "real lady" who embodied grace, courage and refinement!


A service will be held at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles – Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville) at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 24th.  A reception and visitation will follow.  In lieu of flowers, donations to Operation Smile, 375 University Ave., Suite 204, Toronto, M5G 2J5.  Condolences may be forwarded through
