Shirley Isaac

Shirley Sandbach Isaac passed away peacefully, while holding her husband’s hand and with family by her side on Friday, July 13th, 2018. She was born March 6th, 1938 in Louisville, Kentucky to Alvin and Ruth Sandbach, then life took her to North Carolina and onto the Sunshine state that she loved so much, Florida. Being the beautiful lady that she was, inside and out, she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. 

Shirley dedicated her life being faithful to Christ as a Eucharistic Minister, bringing hope and comfort to the sick and homebound through Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  She was a long standing member of the Legion of Mary and held offices such as President and Secretary. If you ever wanted to see her big, bright smile, just mention “Church”. She loved attending and being involved in everything she could at Sacred Heart, including CRHP, where she enjoyed the fellowship of great friends. 

Shirley is survived by her husband, Woody, her daughters Debbie (Pat), Kathy (Danny), Kim and Wendy (Chuck), 11 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, 5 great, great grandchildren, her brother, Bill Sandbach (Ruth) and beloved dog, Cristol Belle.  She was predeceased by her daughter, Leisha I. Lyles.

Shirley’s family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at Northside Hospital and Suncoast, (Woodside) Hospice for the compassion and loving care they provided. It is greatly appreciated.
