Welcome to Smith Miner

Rosella Marie Bujold/Isenberg, 95, of Iron Mountain Michigan, passed away surrounded in love, with family by her side on Wednesday, August

5th, 2020 at the Stratford Pines Nursing Home in Midland, Michigan.

Rosella was born on May 16, 1925 at the family farm in North Freedom Wisconsin to the late Emma (Gall) and John William Davidson. Rosella attended a one room school house and graduated from Baraboo High School. She became a beautician in Madison, Wisconsin and then was hired at Mr. Smith’s salon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it was in Milwaukee, that she met Robert Bujold at a dance. They were married on June 24,1950 after he graduated from Marquette law school. They moved up north (God’s country) to Iron Mountain in the mid-1950’s where Bob

worked for Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company as an insurance salesman.

Rosella was a devoted wife and mother and she insisted that all five of her children attend college and take piano lessons from Mrs. Hanna. She had always wanted to become a home economics teacher, but instead used those skills as a 4-H leader who taught sewing and knitting skills to many young girls in the community. Her interests included cooking delicious meals and desserts, raviolis and pasties were some of her favorites. She was a master knitter, seamstress, and she loved playing the card game “Bridge”. She and Bob were faithful members of Saint Mary and Saint

Joseph Parish since the mid 1950‘s and of the Pine Grove country club and had many life long friendships in both. They enjoyed traveling together and spent their winters in North Carolina. They also traveled abroad to Europe. Ten years after Bob passed away on April 15th, 1994, she reconnected with her high school sweetheart Paul Isenberg (widower) at their 60th class reunion in 2003. They were married on July 10th, 2004.

Our family wishes to express our sincere appreciation to the staff at Victorian Pines Estates in Iron Mountain and Stratford Pines Nursing Home for the excellent care that she received as a resident.
