DeKALB Isabel S. Cash, 94, of DeKalb, Ill., passed away in the early morning hours of Feb. 19, 2013 at her home at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center, DeKalb, after a brief illness. She was born May 20, 1918, in Joliet, to Richard and Mary Stoops.
Isabel had a beloved older sister, Mary Margaret, and brother, Marshall. The family later moved to Jacksonville, where she graduated from Jacksonville High School in 1936 and MacMurray College in 1940. She then obtained a master's degree in educational counseling at Columbia in New York City. She began her career as a freshman English teacher in 1941, at Glenbard High School in Glen Ellyn.

She remembered her years at NIU fondly.
In 1952, Isabel married Francis Cash, who was a World War II veteran and local attorney. They resided in DeKalb and had two children: Mary Cash (Lewis) and John Cash.
Isabel was a member of the First Congregational Church for 63 years. She was devoted to her grandchildren, Mark Haigh, David Haigh (Tania), Michael Haigh, Kimberly Cash, Daniel Cash, and Jeffrey Cash. She recently became a proud great-grandmother to Vivian Maria Haigh.
