Beloved wife of Joseph Clifford McIsaac (2006), Marie was a loving mother of Cathy (Jacques) Messier of Terra Cotta, Ont., Alex (Maureen) McIsaac, Mona (Lyle) Goodman both of Saskatoon, Chris (Carolyn) McIsaac of Calgary, Mark (Suzanne) McIsaac and Margie McIsaac (D'Arcy McGuire) both of Ottawa.

Marie was devoted to the Lord and never lost sight of her faith as she dealt with many life challenges. She was always ready to sit and listen to those who came to her door - usually with a cigarette and the occasional glass of wine. Her laugh and infectious smile made her the life of the party. Marie loved going to mass, saying the rosary, blessing her children, gardening, playing cards (especially beating Dad in crib), and having family dinners. She was the wind beneath Dad's wings. Marie graduated from the School of Nursing at St. Michael's Hospital of Toronto in 1950. She worked in obstetrics at the Guelph General Hospital, married Clifford in 1953, and in 1955, they moved to Unity, Saskatchewan to start a veterinary practice. She went on to raise six children while supporting her husband in veterinary practice and then political life in Regina and Ottawa.
A celebration of Marie's life will take place at St. Martin's Catholic Church in Cumberland, Prince Edward Island, Saturday July 16, 2016 at 2 p.m.
The family would like to thank the staff at Luther Special Care Home, Dr. J. Hosain and Dr. M. McKague for the care they gave to Mom.
