Obituary of Irene Isaacson
Irene Joann Isaacson started her heavenly journey from this world to be with our Lord on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at 6:34 am in Weatherford, Texas, where she lived with her oldest daughter Carol and her husband Ed. Irene was born in Tiverton, Rhode Island on July 10, 1935, to the late Mary Julia Constance Blanchett Moniz and the late Albert Joseph Blanchett and the late Robert Francis Carr Jr.
She graduated the class of 1951 from Durfee High School in Fall River, Massachusetts. Irene was a great mother to her four children and was a tough homemaker. She loved to play games, especially bingo, and all kinds of card games. She was a voracious reader; she loved crossword puzzles and word searches. She liked to be challenged, so the harder the better for her. Irene was an electronically challenged internet warrior. She loved playing games on Pogo and was a high point warrior.
She was married to the late Earl Nelson Rivers who died very young in the Navy. She endured on with her two daughters until she found her way to the late Ernest E. Isaacson Jr. of Flint, Michigan. Irene is survived by her two daughters, Carol Ann Rivers Crane and husband Ed Crane of Weatherford, Texas and Doreen Marie Blosser and her husband Nicholas Blosser of Houston, Texas. She also had two sons the late Rick E. Isaccson of Flint, Michigan and Ernest Isaacson III of Prescott, Arizona and his wife Sue Isaacson. Irene’s family also consisted of 14 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren spanning over 9 different states.
She will be forever loved and missed.
