It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our precious little sweetheart, Isabelle (Issy) Margaret Roulston, beloved daughter of Jonathan Roulston and Courtney Bennett, little sissy to Elizabeth (Lizzie) Roulston, on Nov. 2, 2019.

Born on May 29, 2018 in Fort Frances, Ont., Isabelle had a smile that could melt any heart and an easy spirit that would brighten the darkest of days.

Isabelle spent her short time on this earth teaching those around her about love, through laughter, twinkling eyes, and plenty of smiles. Isabelle brought endless joy and happiness to everyone she touched. Her joyous “HI” would be the highlight to your day.

Always with an adorably messy face, and in constant awe of her big sister, Isabelle showed us how to slow down and just be in the moment. Isabelle was always sneaking her favourite foods—Cheezies and mac and cheese—to her puppies, Jake and Bill. Isabelle also loved to cuddle up and watch Paw Patrol.

Dancing was her most favorite activity to do with her sister or anyone who would join in. Dance among the stars now, little one.

Along with her loving parents and big sissy, Isabelle is survived by her great-grandmother, Wendy Judson; grandparents, George and Sharon Roulston, Joanne and Bruce Bursey (Glama and Pops), Harlene Bennett (Nan), and Tom and Tammy Bennett (Papa and Gammy); aunties and uncles, Heidi and John Holmstrom (Ammy and Papa), “Uncles" JT and Kevin Holmstrom, Hayley Bennett, "Auntie” Max Moraze, Travis and Tyler Roulston, Crystal and Todd Smith, Teare Arnould, Hope Riding; and cousins, Liam and Henry Smith.

Isabelle is also survived by numerous extended family members and friends.

The family would like to extend thanks to all who have been supportive during this very difficult time.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Green Funeral Home in Fort Frances on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019 at 1 p.m.

A gathering will follow at La Place Rende-Vous in Fort Frances.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a charitable donation be made to the Children's Hospital Foundation.
