Isolde Reule, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, died October 30, 2021, having been recently diagnosed with a malignant pancreatic tumor. She was 84. Born in Cobadin, Romania, and having spent numerous years during WW II in Austria, Poland and Germany, Isolde immigrated to Portland, Oregon, with her parents and two sisters in 1955. She met her husband Bruno in 1956 at a mutual German immigrant friend’s home and they married on June 4, 1960.
Isolde was a caring, creative soul. She was most happy when she could entertain and offer her baked treats presented at a perfectly set table. Her other creative talents included sewing, gardening and flower arranging. She shared her gifts with family, and circle of friends that included her church, the Sportclub Germania and American Historical Society of Germans from Russia.
Isolde is survived by her husband Bruno; daughter Ramona; grandson Tristan Cooper; and sister Gudrun Hartfeil and her family. She was preceded in death by sister Treny Denton; niece Astrid Schlaps; and parents Ida and Emanuel Schlaps.
