GEORGIA (JO) ISAACS, Age 77, passed away peacefully on April 29, 2006 with her family at her side. She was born March 5, 1929 in Lost Creek, West Virginia where she was raised with her sister Ruth by their beloved grandparents Hattie and David Mc Kinney. She later moved to Baltimore, MD where she met her husband Ivan (Bud) Isaacs. They were married November 3, 1962. They drove out west on their honeymoon and settled in Los Angeles and later Santa Monica, CA where they raised their family and shared many happy years. Jo enjoyed her work as a bookkeeper and accountant and Bud built a successful and respected career as a textile salesman. Jo was blessed to have shared 42 years with her best friend and love, Bud, until his passing in 2004. Through all the hard times and good, there were never two more devoted and loving partners. They especially enjoyed their trips to Las Vegas, going to the horse races and sharing their love of sports together. Family was especially important and Jo was an amazingly loving and devoted mother to Michael and Felicia, who will miss her immeasurably. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Bud; her parents Mack and Martha Mc Kinney; her grandparents David and Hattie Mc Kinney and a sister Ruth Wilt. Jo is survived by her daughter Felicia Isaacs of Bellevue, WA; son Michael Gordon of Los Angeles, CA; nephews David, Mark and Greg Wilt; sisters-in-law Irene (Frank) Friedland and Hortense Goodovitch; nieces Joni (Howard) Blum and Karen (Bob) Rosenthal; nephews Paul (Pattie) Goodovitch and Ronald Gaskel and their families; and her extended family in Washington, Chris Erickson and the Erickson family. Jo was an incredibly loving, giving and warm hearted angel who touched everyone she met and will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her. A memorial service was held at Sunset Hills Memorial Park at 1:00 P.M. Saturday, May 20, 2006. A reception will follow at her home in Bellevue, WA.
