Isabella M. Hird
Mrs. Isabella M. Hird, 87, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday evening, March 12, 2017 peacefully and in no pain after a lengthy illness. She was born Nov. 10, 1929 in Kirkcaldy, Scotland and came to the United States in the late 1950’s to be with the love of her life, Andrew L. Hird, whom she met in Kirkcaldy. They were married in the First Presbyterian Church of Ridgway on Nov. 24, 1958 and spent the next 58 years a loving couple. Isa loved all animals but especially her miniature Schnauzer, Schapsie.
She loved to play golf, traveling and being a gracious hostess to the countless cocktail and dinner parties she loved to throw. Isa loved spending her time up at the Elk County Country Club playing golf or enjoying the company of wonderful friends. She always loved company and sitting having a “splash” of wine with friends. She began her career in real estate sales in the late 70’s working for Strout Realty and eventually earning her broker’s license and starting her own real estate business, Isabella M. Bird Realty which she excelled at. She will forever be remembered for her kind, loving and gentle heart, a wonderful mother and a true angel here on earth.
In 1990 Isa and Andy moved to their dream home in Green Cove Springs, Florida at Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club where they met countless close friends from around the world. Isa will be terribly missed by many but she is finally at peace and in the arms of God. She was surrounded by her loving family constantly for the last month of her life and her only son, Gregory, was always with her, comforting her and taking care of her needs.
Mrs. Hird was preceded in death by her mother and father, Andrew and Mrs. Jesse Smart of Oswald Rod, Kirkcaldy and her loving brother and sister-in-law, Andy and Margaret Smart of Westwood Avenue, Kirkcaldy, Scotland. She is survived by her husband, Andy and son Greg.
A story she loved to tell was of seeing The Beatles in the now gone Carlton Theatre in Kirkcaldy in 1963, prior to them coming to America. A private Presbyterian Scottish wake will be held at a later date at her beloved home. Thre will be no visitation and in lieu of flowers donations can be made to Haven Hospice, 745 Blanding Blvd., Orange Park, Fla.
