It is with broken hearts and deepest sorrow that we the family announce the passing of our wonderful mother and Nana, Isabel Burte on Wednesday, October 21, 2020. Born November 29, 1931 in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of the late Alfred and Maisie Morrison Butt. She was predeceased by her loving husband James F. Burte, beloved granddaughter Danielle Gillis and grandson Brandon Plichie. Also, she was predeceased by brothers Kenneth, Gerald and Eric Butt and sister Eileen (Al)Tanner. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Mom was a proud nurse who made many friends during her long career. She was a member of the Glace Bay Hospital Nursing Alumni Association. Isabel is survived by her loving family and friends. In her day she was an avid bowler and enjoyed cross stitching, a good mystery novel, playing sudoku and learning new vocabulary. In more recent years she was a strong advocate for the rights of residents living in nursing homes. There is so much more we can say about our Mother but we really want her to know how much she was loved by her family. Those who knew her were well aware of her wit, wisdom and wry sense of humour. She will be sadly missed by her children, Vina (Robert) Johnson, Coxheath, Gerri (Tyrone) Plichie, Glace Bay, Eileen (Albert) Vaters, Main A Dieu, Alison (Steve) Gillis, Glace Bay, Charlene (Steve) Nearing, Grand Prairie AB and Jim Burte (Olga) Glace Bay.

Aunt Isabel was a sweet lady but was not shy to voice her opinion. We had a nice visit last year and she was so glad to see us and meet our granddaughter Kaylee. She loved her family and was always talking about them. She was so proud of them. Condolences to all of her family. Phil, Linda and Joe Bates.

My deepest sympathy to Isabel's friends and family upon learning of her passing. She was a wonderful friend of my sister Margie's during their nursing days in Glace Bay General Hospital's School of Nursing, and I got to meet her when Margie brought friends home for lunch and Mum's home baking. I enjoyed her sense of humour and dry wit. Take care and carry on.
