It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Isabel Marina Dublin (nee Martin), who peacefully departed this life on Feb. 19 in Atlanta, Ga., after a lengthy illness.
She was born on Oct. 7, 1936, in English Harbor, Antiqua. She was a practical nurse at Knud Hansen Memorial Hospital during the 1960s. Later, she worked over 30 years as a school professional, an attendance counselor, at Wayne Aspinall Junior High School, which was later renamed Addelita Cancryn Junior High School, at which she continued in the same duties.
Isabel was preceded in death by her husband, Gloster Dublin; and her parents: Ephraim W.L. Martin and Agnes Maude Martin.
She is survived by her son, Colonel Gerard A. Dublin, United States Air Force Reserves (Retired); daughter, Ann Marie M. Dublin; daughter-in-law, Vicki Dublin; grandsons: Ryan Dublin and Colin Dublin; great-granddaughters: Kayse Dublin and Zoe Dublin; sisters: Clovis E. Emmanuel, Melida E. Martin, Lucia A. Thomas, Anna C. Martin-Jerald and Edith A. Martin; brother, Michael E. Martin; and many nieces and nephews too numerous to mention.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a funeral Mass on Thursday, March 10. There will be a prelude of singing hymns from 9:30-10 a.m. followed by a funeral service at 10 a.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church. Interment will be at Eastern Cemetery in Smith Bay.
The family requests festive colors to be worn.
