Isabell Koertge, age 85, of Edwardsville, IL, passed away on Monday, June 4, 2018 at Rosewood Care Center, Edwardsville, IL. Isabell was born on August 8, 1932 in Roswell, NM, a daughter of the late Jake Davis and Kathryn “Kate” (Melson) Brown.

On November 18, 1950, Isabell Davis married Glen Dale Koertge, the love of her life and Glen passed away on April 5, 2003. After marrying Glen she threw her energies into raising their six children. Issy enjoyed reading, crocheting and traveling the world. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, especially with her grandchildren, whom she adored. There was nothing Issy liked better than a cup of coffee and an interesting conversation. She will be forever missed but not forgotten by all who loved her.

In addition to her parents and husband, Isabell is now reunited with her beautiful sons, Jim, Kenny, Clifford, David and Marty Koertge.

She is survived by her loving daughter and son-in-law, Lori and Mark Capps of Pace, FL; dear daughters-in-law, Patti Koertge of Edwardsville, IL, Kathy Koertge of Edwardsville, IL and Angela Koertge of Troy, IL. She was a proud grandmother to eleven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many extended family members and friends.

A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.
