Isabel Lillian (Demont) Dwyer, age 89, of Maccan, NS passed away at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on June 1, 2022.

Born in Midgic, NB, on May 12, 1933 she was the loving daughter of the late Herman and Fanny Demont.

Isabel‘s first job was working at Sifto Salt Mines and though she only stayed for a couple of years she did develop lifelong friendships, as was a common occurrence for her. 

By this time Isabel was a busy mother and was able to find employment at the Paramont Theatre, where she continued to work for 38 years. During this time she worked five nights a week and was able to care for her growing family during the day. Many would consider that to be a full plate but not Isabel. In addition she was a door to door sales person for Avon. Many people we believe ordered Avon so they could have a regular visit with Isabel. 

Finally she was Maccan’s local hairstylist, her cuts were great and her prices even better. So you would think all this provided her with enough to do but oh no, in the summers she would drag us out to the blueberry fields to rake blueberries. Every year when she finished blueberry season there was a room in the house that needed renovating. Isabel also had a passion for renovations and a knack for decorating. The word lazy was never spoken in a sentence when talking about her. 

In addition to all the above she raise six children and adopted,  through love, a seventh. Isabel should have been named Mum at birth as that was her true passion and it extended to family and friends.

Isabel is survived by daughters Vicky McLeod of Maccan, Eileen Hopper (Paul) of Amherst, Lisa Gould (Randy) of Truro; sons Raymond (Bonnie) St.Peter of Amherst, Steven Dwyer (Mary Lou) of Brookdale, Barry Dwyer of River Hebert and Albert Dwyer (Karen)of Maccan. In addition she survived by her loving grandchildren Kate Campbell, Pam Bezena, Stephanie Smith, Jared Dwyer, Michael Dwyer, Morgan Richard, Nicole O’Donnell, Robyn McLeod, Brandy McLeod, Tyler McLeod, Bradley Hopper, Christopher Dwyer-Perkins, 18 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren.

Besides her parents, Isabel is predeceased by her loving husband Albert Dwyer Sr, sister Kathleen Simms, daughter in law Gloria Dwyer, granddaughter Sheri Lei and many other aunts, uncles relatives and friends.

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church Street, Amherst (902-667-8777) where visitation will take place Thursday June 9th, 2022 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm with a funeral service immediately after at 3:30pm. Burial will take place in the Amherst Cemetery.
