God needed another angel. Isabel G. Saunderson entered into heaven on Aug. 26, 2014. She lived in Manteca but her impact was felt in Stockton. Her eldest son, Gregory Morales who passed away several years ago, was involved with the local theatre scene including Executive Director at Stockton Civic Theatre (SCT). At SCT, Isabel donated many, many hours providing food, encouragement, painting, sewing, office assistance, and so many of the tasks that make a production work.
She was involved in helping her son Steve Morales with Mayaco Marketing & Internet. She loved answering the phones and anything that a mother could do to help when she stopped by to say hello. So quickly made friends with those she came in contact with via the business; some she even considered her "extended family and children." While she didn't always remember the names, she would often ask about business associates that she met over the years and had a genuine concern for them and their families.
She was surrounded by her family and was at peace. She left her precious children; her pride and joy. She will join her parents and son Gregory Morales in Heaven. Surviving children are Bernadette, Teresa and Steve and Michael Morales, Albert, granddaughter Sophia Payan and so many close friend who were family to her. Also surviving, her brothers and sisters: Carmel, Helen, Joe Jr., Dorothy, Judy, Duane, Karen, Shirley and Linda and her special phone buddies. She loved God so much. She worked at Doctor's Hospital as a caring nurse. She loved people, laughing and playing jokes on others. After retiring, she helped with a variety of community groups like Hospice, loved painting bird boxes, helping people and talking for hours on the phone and being positive. She loved to dance and will be dancing in Heaven. Please hug someone today in memory or our mom. Funeral services will be held on Sept. 13, 2014, 10:30am at Journey Church, 444 Argonaut St., Manteca.
