Isabella Russell "Izzie" Patterson Armour
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 6, 1888
Montreal-Ouest
Montreal Region
Quebec, Canada
Death: Jan. 10, 1985
Calgary
Calgary Census Division
Alberta, Canada

Isabella was born in Montréal, the daughter of John Patterson from Donegal, Ireland, and his second wife, Marion Reid Russell, from Glasgow.

Her father unexpectedly died when Izzie was just eight years old, leaving her mother to raise the seven children.

In 1912 Izzie married stockbroker John Armour. Sadly the marriage ended in divorce during the 1920s - a huge shock to their families at the time. But the couple remained the best of friends until John's death, often travelling together to Europe.

Isabella had a good head on her shoulders, and did quite well in the stock market. During the 1960s she moved to Calgary, Alberta, where she was visited by her great-nephew David Walsh and his family in 1984 who found her in great health at age 86.
