It is with great sadness that the family announces that Isabel Edwina (MacMaster) Grotterød, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Born in Maxville, Ontario on January 7, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Donald and Isabella (Ardley) MacMaster and wife of the late Knut Grotterød.
It was in the late 1940’s while studying to be a registered nurse at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Quebec, that she met her husband, Knut. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Isabel always had a listening ear and a helping hand to anybody in need.
Isabel is survived by her children, Ingrid Grotterød Cyr (Thomas), Christopher Grotterød (Debbra), and Karen Grotterød Milczarek (John), grandmother to Erik (Sandra), Karl, Stefan, Kristian, Nina and Grant and great grandmother to Karma, Kaia and Lokki.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at St. Anne’s Court and the Wellness Connections as well as the DECH Palliative Care Team for the great care and attention they gave Isabel.
There will be no visitation by request of the family. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church on Friday, November 24, 2017 at 2 pm. A reception will follow the service in the church hall.
If desired, donations in Isabel’s memory may be made to Canadian Cancer Society or any charitable organization of your choice.
