Isabelle Ruth McDonald Cowdell, 93, passed away peacefully, surrounded by loving family, on August 16, 2014. She was born to David and Jenny Rock McDonald on September 26, 1920, and raised in Midvale, Utah. She attended Jordan High School, where she participated as a Charlonian, and where she met and fell in love with Albert "Ab" Cowdell. She and Ab loved dancing. After high school, she attended BYU. She later married Ab, and they had four children together: Connie (Tim) Maddox, Bruce (Nancy) Cowdell, Scott (Betty) Cowdell, and Brad Cowdell. Ab and Iszy later divorced, but remained good friends. Following Ab's death, Iszy was sealed to him in the LDS temple, for time and eternity. Iszy was a faithful member of the LDS Church.
Isabelle was the second employee hired at Cottonwood Hospital. She worked there full and part-time for 27 years before retiring.
She is preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, and two sisters. She is survived by her four children, fourteen grandchildren, forty-three great-grandchildren (another on the way), and thirteen great-great grandchildren, all of whom she loved, adored, and boasted about.
