13 Aug 2006

Bonnie Lou Pritchett Isaacs of Dover died, after a courageous battle with lupus and cancer, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2006, in Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, Dover, surrounded by her loving family. She was 50. Ms. Isaacs was born May 30, 1956, in Wilmington, daughter of David and Alice M. Conley.

She graduated from Bethel High School in Hampton, Va., in 1974. The last 10 years of her life were spent in Mount Holly, N.J., with her son and twin sister. In New Jersey, she worked as a pastry chef and enjoyed cooking both professionally and personally for family and friends. Ms. Isaacs enjoyed finding shopping bargains, and those close to her would call her "their own personal shopper." She had a special relationship with everyone she met. Generously and effortlessly, she was always there for those she loved. There is nothing she wouldn't do for her children or grandchildren. She enjoyed NASCAR and watching every race. Jeff Gordon was her favorite driver, and she always cheered him on. She collected dragonflies, and they are symbolic of the flight she will now take to be with other loved ones in Heaven.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Frances Wilson and Harry N. Morgan Sr. She is survived by her parents, Alice M. and David W. Conley of Dover; twin sister, Connie Pritchett West of Mount Holly; two daughters and two sons-in-law, Kelly and Robert Worthington of Felton, Sarah and Carlos Paradizo of Great Mills, Md., and Meghan Trimmer of Hartly; two sons, Justin Trimmer of La Plata, Md., and Daniel Trimmer of Mount Holly; four grandchildren, Makenzie Derrickson of Hartly, Zachary Worthington of Felton, and Senora Shriner and Jordan Paradizo, both of Great Mills; a grandmother, Henrietta Morgan of Dover; two aunts and two uncles, Myrtle and Walter Coker, and Harry Morgan, all of Dover, and Harriett Everett of Magnolia; a cousin who was a lifelong best friend and shared a special sisterhood relationship with her, Lisa Quillen of Felton; a niece and a nephew, Meredith West and Andrew West, both of Mount Holly; her beloved miniature schnauzer, Graycie; and many additional cousins and friends who loved her dearly.

Services will be 1 p.m. Tuesday in Torbert Funeral Chapel South, 1145 E. Lebanon Road (Del. 10), Dover, where friends may call two hours earlier. Burial will be in Sharon Hills Memorial Park, Dover. Instead of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Delaware Hospice, 911 S. Du Pont Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
