Isabelle Amy Ulmer (nee Lavigne) passed away peacefully on Saturday June 27, 2020 at Abbotsford at the age of 86.

She is sadly missed by daughter Lana Deruyter (Jim, Brandon, and Emily) and stepsons Chuck Ulmer (Rande, Jesse, Kylie) and Bill Ulmer (Susan) along with siblings Roy (Margaret), Marianne (Vic), and Orville (Susan). Also missed by her Brother in laws George, John and Norman, Bill’s sisters Clare and Linda (Don) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by Husband Bill, Parents Maurice and Grace, sisters Evelyn, Irene and Frances and brother in laws Arno and Ernie.

Born in Melita, MB, Mom moved to Nanaimo in her teens. She spent her early adult years throughout BC teaching. After meeting Dad at a bowling banquet, Mom left for Europe. When she returned, they settled in Nanaimo and then moved to Burnaby where Lana was born.

After spending many years travelling to Lana's home in Chilliwack, they finally retired there in 2010. Dad passed in 2016 but Mom remained in Chilliwack, first in her home, then in the Birchwood and finally after a brief stay at Tabor Home, where she peacefully took her last breath and was free from her dementia.

A Celebration of Life will be held once we can gather in large groups again. A small gathering of family and friends will be held at Vedder View Cemetery.

Special thanks to the staff at the Birchwood, CGH and at the Tabor Home.

Donations may be made in her memory to the Alzheimer Society of BC.
