Remembrance garden opens in memory of music teacher

A REMEMBRANCE garden has opened in honour of a former music teacher from Crosby.

The garden, in memory of Isabel Morison, has opened at Sacred Heart Catholic College’s Lower Site in Crosby.

Work started earlier this year on the garden which was designed to be a lasting memorial to Isabel, who sadly died in May last year following a year-long battle with an incurable brain cancer.

Staff, her friends and family helped design and work on the area, as well as donating items of garden furniture, to create a peaceful space to take time out to relax in.

Headteacher, John Pye is delighted with the results and believes it is something that Isabel would have enjoyed.

He said: “The remembrance garden is a fitting tribute to someone who was a wonderful person and will always be sadly missed. A lot of thought and love has gone into creating this garden and it will ensure that Isabel will never be forgotten by her Sacred Heart family.”

Mum-of-two Isabel, 40, died on Sunday, May 26 at home alongside her family – 14 months after she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called grade four primary glioblastoma.

Her fight against the illness touched the hearts of many in the Crosby community and a number of local events helped raise more than £80,000 as part of a fundraising drive to try and get £200,000 to pay for pioneering immunotherapy treatment.
