Loving nurse had the touch of an angel
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
Catherine Kathleen ISAAC was a modern-day Florence Nightingale who not only treated patients but often attended to family members.
As a nurse, ISAAC believed that illness could be fought on several fronts, not just with medicine and surgery. A laugh, or smile or a good deed seemed to be a ready cure.
She had an angel's touch, especially with her family, and whether it was a cousin in a car accident or her ailing in-laws, she put everyone's interests before her own.
"We relied on her strength and her caring nature," said daughter Vera, who is also a nurse. "Her mother was like that."
In the end, ISAAC's own body failed her. She died in her sleep from a heart attack on October 22 at the age of 83.
Catherine KOZUB grew up in Thorold South, a town of about 250 people, with five siblings, and the spirit of giving was commonplace.
"Everybody cared for one another and there were no exceptions," Vera said.
ISAAC's mother was a nurse, and ISAAC wanted to follow in her footsteps.
She graduated from Hamilton General Hospital in 1946, beginning what would be a 40-year nursing career. She worked in various departments, such as labour and delivery, and in the operating room, in New York City, St. Catharines and Brampton.
In 1948, she married Charlie ISAAC. The owner of a Bolton car dealership, he died in 1998.
Daughter Jo-Anne COPELAND, another nurse, recalled how ISAAC was on hand when her sister Doris's 18-year-old son died in a car accident in St. Catharines in 1963. Her mother was with Doris and "gave great comfort" to her at a time of devastating loss.
When her brother Joe had a heart attack, she was there. When her in-laws needed 24-hour care, she was there. And she helped her own sisters when they were ill.
A distant relative, Esther USICK, 72, of St. Catharines, recalled the time, as a teenager, she had kidney surgery in Toronto. When she went home following the operation, she was weak.
It was Catherine ISAAC who came over to administer the Vitamin B12 shots that restored her to health.
"She always did something for everybody. Lots of kindness," USICK said.
ISAAC had a heart attack about seven years ago, but that didn't really slow her down.
But she also had spinal problems thatmeant she had to use a wheelchair.
"She was very fragile," Vera said of her mother.
ISAAC was too frail to attend the 60th reunion of her graduating nursing class held in September. Of 100 nurses, only six remain.
But she was fondly remembered there, Vera said.
"One of the members of that class saw the death notice and made her way down to St. Catharines to let us know how important Mom had been," she said.
Although ISAAC had been living in the King Gardens retirement home in Mississauga since 1999, she wasn't content to just sit back, her family said.
Only a few weeks before her death, she was instrumental in raising $2,000 for the Alzheimer's association through a fundraiser, making jams and knitting scarves and other items for the craft table.
At the home, she also organized movie nights and bingo nights and used her artistic talents to paint ceramics.
One of her greatest pleasures was to create ceramic angels because, as Vera said, "she felt she had angels all around her on the inner plane so she wanted to paint them on the outer plane."
ISAAC would give them away to people and "they were like guardian angels" for them.
She was also a prizewinning gardener and a prizewinning deep-sea fisherwoman.
Her favourite sun destination was Antigua, and she had been going there for more than 30 years. But on vacation, her caring nature didn't take a break.
One year, ISAAC met a woman who later became widowed with three children. When the woman came to Canada for medical attention, ISAAC volunteered to bring the children here and and care for them.
They became like a second family and they referred to her and her husband as "Auntie Kay" and "Uncle Charlie."
ISAAC leaves three children, Vera ISAAC of Vernon, British Columbia Jo-Anne COPELAND, of Oakville, and George ISAAC, of St. Catharines, and two grandchildren.
