Canmore says goodbye to mom killed by grizzly:

Isabelle Dube will be fondly remember in Canmore and across Canada as an enthusiastic and positive individual who lived life to its fullest.

Before Isabelle moved to Canmore 8 years ago, she was a member of the Pierre Harvey National Team Training Centre in Quebec. Isabelle represented Quebec on a national level for many years. Since moving to Canmore, Isabelle became well-recognized locally as a superb mountain biker and a dedicated outdoors enthusiast. She has touched the lives of people from many walks of life and will be sorely missed by all. She is survived by her 5-year-old daugher, Lea, and husband, Heath McCroy.

A memorial service honoring Dube is being held from 12.30 to 1.30 pm on Friday, June 10 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre in Canmore. The graveside service is set from 1.30 to 2.15 pm at the Canmore Cemetry. A reception will follow the graveside service from 2.30 to 5 pm at the Radisson. It will include a slideshow on Dube's life, followed by open mic comments. The celebration of her life will continue later at the Drake Inn.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a trust fund for Dube's daughter will be gratefully accepted. Donations will be accepted at the service or at Canmore Legal Services “in trust for Isabelle Dube” Suite 200, 1350 Railway Avenue, Canmore, AB.
