Isabelle Patenaude

- Carol Vulliamy

Isabelle Patenaude- 1881


A wonderful mother of seventeen she was

Isabelle was joyful and happy just because.

Children, grandchildren and friends agree

She had charisma that made her feel free.


Wild berries and vegetables she’d preserve

-Blood sausage; a valued part of her reserve.

Food and clothes was a big item for sure

Leather moccasins sewn from hides cured.


Seventeen children were a large labor pool

Gathering berries and fish was ever so cool-

Quilts and pillows stuffed with feathers we’d hug

Willow brooms beat dust from braided rugs.


A beautiful life; everybody valued they’d say

The Ten Commandments upheld they’d pray.

-Cooperation and hard work prevents disorder.

Team work kept family and community in order.
