Louann Isaacson, 57, of Thomson, died peacefully on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 with her loving husband and family at her side.
Louann, who was known as "Auntie Lou" or "Gramma Lou" to all who knew and loved her was born in Cloquet on Feb. 4, 1955 to Russell and Mary Alice (Miotke) McMillen.
She was a beautiful person inside and out. Louann was so full of spunk and wit, and she had a heart of gold. Louann married her best friend, John Isaacson on Nov. 9, 1974 and together they raised two wonderful children, Bobby and Jenny.
She was a member of the Carlton VFW Post 2962 Auxiliary and had various jobs throughout her life, with the most recent being at the Carlton VFW and Black Bear Casino. Louann loved reading romance novels, doing puzzles, and going to garage sales, but there was nothing she loved more than taking care of her family. Her grandkids meant the world to her.
Louann was preceded in death by her parents; one infant brother; her maternal grandparents, George and Marion (Winters) Miotke and her paternal grandparents, Frank and Theodora McMillen.
She is survived by her husband, John of 37 years; two children, Bobby (April Reynolds) Isaacson and Jenny (Terry) Fisher; seven grandchildren, Duane and Destiney Isaacson, Jackson and Bailey Reynolds, Olivia, John, and Eva Fisher; three sisters, Ann (Chris) Olson, Sue (Dan) O'Leary, Mary-Jo (Dan) McCorison; two brothers, Russell (Laura) McMillen and Michael (Dori) McMillen; sisters-in-law, Bonnie (George) Houle, Gloria (Glen) Olson; special aunt Donna (Pete) Koski, and three special cousins, Kimberly and Mandy Price, Elizabeth St. Germain and their families; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
