Isabel was born in San Rafael to Mary and Manuel Pimentel, a prominent pioneer dairy family of Marin County, but grew up in Novato on the dairy. On September 24, 1938 at Our Lady of Loretto Church in Novato, she married Thomas A. Nunes, who also came from a Marin County pioneer dairy family, and together they enjoyed over 50 years of marriage until his passing in 1991.
