AKWESASNE – Isabel Elizabeth McDonald, 85, of 165 Border Road, Snye, passed away early Friday morning, January 25, 2019 at Iakhihsohtha Lodge where she had been a resident since April 2015.

Isabel was born August 1, 1933 in St. Regis Village, the daughter of the late Joseph M. and Theresa (Smoke) Terrance. She first went to school in St. Regis before attending St. Regis Mohawk School. She continued on to Bombay and finished at grade 8. On April 7, 1956, she married Phillip McDonald at St. Regis Catholic Church. He predeceased her in February 1997.

As a young woman, she worked for a time picking spinach in Malone. After her marriage, she and her husband operated a farm. She was an active communicant of St. Regis Catholic Church, along with the Altar and Rosary Society, and the Kateri Circle, where she enjoyed traveling to various conferences. Isabel was also a member of the Akwesasne Homemakers Club and the Mohawk Trailblazers Ski-Doo Club. Isabel’s enjoyment came from cooking and baking and her hobbies included collect angels, quilting, gardening and canning the rewards from her garden. She had a very generous spirit and would be found assisting the Hogansburg Akwesasne Fire Department at various events, visiting residents at the Iakhihsohtha Lodge, or making a meal for a community member in need.

Isabel is survived by her sister, Mae T. Revette of Syracuse; her brother, Michael and Nancy Terrance of Syracuse; her sister-in-law, Lois Terrance of Akwesasne; her chosen son, godson, and caregiver, Sturge and Helen Lazore of Sugarbush Island; her additional godchildren, Dorothy Costello, Liz Nelson, Pat Chubb, Jr., Joanne King, Patricia White, Bridgette Terrance, and Delia Lazore-Terrance; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by a sister, Marlene Garrow; a brother, Leonard Terrance; and a godson, Dewayne Revette.

Friends may call at her home, 165 Border Road, Snye on Monday starting at 4:00PM until Wednesday 9:30 AM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday 10:30 AM at St. Regis Catholic Church with Rev. Jerome Pastores, celebrating. Burial will be held in the spring in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Iakhihsohtha Lodge Activities Fund.

I’m so sorry for the loss of this woman. My comdolences go out to the McDonald family. There’s a Scripture I’d love to share that always comforted me when I lost someone close to me in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which says: “And he [God] will wipe out every very tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise from God that he will end death forever in the future and that we will see our loved ones again!
