We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned so as to live the life that is waiting for us …”

Surrounded by family and close friends, Isabella passed away peacefully in her home in Victoria, .B.C.

Isabella, a lifelong seeker and formidable teacher, profoundly touched the lives of those who knew and loved her. Born in Montreal, she was a longtime resident of Lasqueti Island, a resident of Parksville and most recently, Victoria.

Isabella is survived by her mother Claude Gauvin (New Brunswick), brother Simon Gauvin (Nova Scotia) and daughter Maya Gauvin (Victoria, BC).

Isabella’s inspirational spirit lives on in her beautiful and courageous daughter, Maya. Maya will continue to be guided by family and Isabella’s friends, with an intention that honours her authentic self.
