ISABELLE COUGHLIN

The Coughlin and Livingstone families are deeply saddened to announce the passing Isabelle Marguerite (Livingstone) Coughlin who died peacefully, while holding the hand of her son Brian, early in the morning on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, in Grace Hospital, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Isabelle was predeceased by her devoted husband Patrick Coughlin and loved son Gerald, her parents, Annabell (McDowell) and John (Jack) Livingstone, her sisters, Ivy Kennington (Walter), Elizabeth Dorothy Curtis (George) and brothers, Mel (Irene), Allan (Vera) and Bruce Livingstone (Lorraine), brothers-in-law Ed Coughlin and Gordon Horan, nephews, Michael Horan and George Curtis, and niece Gilda Selmerson.
Cherished mother and mother-in-law of Bridget and Havoc Franklin, Tim and Shirley (LeSage), Kevin, Brian and Dee (Butler) Coughlin. Adored grandmother of Vanessa (Demaine) and Ilyse Hoffer, and Harris Franklin, Carly (Jeff), Austin (Emily), Jayden and Shea Coughlin, Connor Coughlin (Kelly), and great-grandson, Ozias Nelson. Dear sister-in-law of Sheila Horan and Mary Coughlin. Proud Aunt of Dr. Rodney Livingstone, Walter Kennington (Donna), Adrianne Florentino, Vicki Hockley (Terry), Tracy Savageaux (Michael), Mary-Lynne, Darcia and Christopher (Laura) Curtis, John Livingstone (Sylvanna), Kelly, Larry (Jo-Ann), Richard, Dennis, Tracy, Patrick (Lori-Ann), and Jeff Horan (Jill), and Catherine Thiessen (Bobby), Christy Bangen (Leroy), Cory Humble (Dave), Patti, Elizabeth (Doug) and Amy (Dave) Coughlin. She will be fondly remembered by Carmen and Gerald Butler, and Elsa Franklin.
Isabelle was born in Winnipeg, on February 26, 1931 and recently celebrated her 90th birthday. She was the youngest amongst six children. Her father Jack nicknamed her 'Buddy', and she was a sincere and loyal friend throughout her life. Isabelle attended General Wolfe Junior High School and Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. Afterwards, Isabelle joined the book department at the exciting and fast paced Eaton's store in the heart of Winnipeg. From that time, she had an everlasting love of good books, writers, celebrities, theatre, song, and dance.
Isabelle met her true love, a speckled capped cattleman, Patrick Coughlin at a dance in Selkirk Manitoba. They were married in 1956 and together raised and deeply loved their 'fabulous five kids' and 'eight miracle grandkids'. Each of her grandchildren brought endless joy and pride and in turn Grandma had a tremendously positive impact on their lives.
Isabelle took great pleasure in having parties and events for family and friends, travelling, spending summers at Grand Marais and poolside on Country Club Road. Most of all, she loved her one-on-one time and countless fun, unique adventures with her grandchildren. She was an active volunteer and fundraiser for St. Amant in appreciation for the care and support of son, Gerald. Her sense of community and belonging to Holy Rosary Parish was foundational for her faith and spirituality.
Isabelle was a sparkling bright light with a zest for life. Conversations with Isabelle always included a big smile, a laugh, and a good story. She had an amazing outlook and was an 'always up for anything' friend, sister, aunt, mom, and grandma. Isabelle's friends know what they meant to her by her devotion and kindness. Isabelle was engaging and warm, a remarkable quality which made everyone feel like they were family.
The Coughlin family offers a special thank you to Father Sam Argenziano, and Grace Hospital doctors, nurses, and medical team on Second Floor South for their extraordinary care. Also, to her lifelong friends, her close friends, neighbours, relatives, and special friends who helped as travel companions, drivers, and chefs. She was devoted to you all and your support made a difference in her life.
Isabelle, Mom, Grandma and Aunt you will be missed dearly by your entire family and many friends. Amazingly, we take great comfort in knowing that you joined your husband Patrick whom you missed so deeply on your 65th wedding anniversary, April 14, 1956, just in time to enjoy your first dance all over again.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated privately by family on Thursday, April 22 at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Avenue. Rev. Fr. Sam Argenziano celebrating. Interment to follow at Assumption Cemetery. Due to Covid restrictions, all others are invited to join us via livestream at: https://youtu.be/dk-3IsZR3W8. A celebration of Isabelle's life will, hopefully, take place later this year.

  • Auntie Buddy was a very dear lady.She always had a positive attitude. Whenever we met her she had a big smile, a hug and lots of stories to tell!

  • So sad to hear this news. I will never forget being 'taken to the tickle factory' by Aunt Buddy. She was always awesome to us kids and it left an impact on me for the rest of life. Anytime you heard you were going to see Aunty Buddy and Uncle Pat it brought a smile to your face. Condolences to the family. - Posted by: Les J David (Family friend) on: Apr 17, 2021

  • My heartfelt condolences to the Coughlin family on Isabelle’s passing. I have very fond memories of Isabelle and the Coughlin family who lived over the back fence from us. My Mom and Isabelle were close friends. Her smile lit up the room... Rest In Peace dear lady. - Posted by: Susan Brennand (McEwen) (Former neighbour) on: Apr 17, 2021

  • She was always the Aunt of my heart. I remember Sunday evenings when she would come for her weekly cup of Postum. Mom and Auntie Isabelle would talk and talk for hours. So many stories were told and then re-told. I spoke to Aunt just a few weeks ago and she always sounded happy and full of life. Just can't believe she would ever pass. She was so strong and lively. Well Auntie Isabell, you Aunt Emily and Mom can have a cup of coffee and a good old chin wag. Condolences to the family, Love Cathy - Posted by: Cathy (Andronick) Costello (Aunt of my heart) on: Apr 17, 2021
