After a very long illness, God sent for his heavenly Angel.  Iranthia McNeil Isles was born on June 16, 1928 and she went to her heavenly home on June 30, 2019.  Iranthia was born in Ellaree, South Carolina where she grew up with her siblings and her parents Jessie Crosby McNeil and Wille B. McNeil (Red) in Belmont, North Carolina.


Iranthia received her education at Reid High School and graduated in 1945.  She went on to become an Educational Provider.  In 1949, she attended Johnson C. Smith University and in 1950 she attended North Carolina Central University.  For a period of 35 years, she divided her teaching career between Reid High School and Hunter Huss High School in Gaston County and Clear Creek Elementary School of Mecklenburg County. 


Mrs. Isles was a long-time faithful member of Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Belmont, North Carolina.  Before her illness and home confinement, she served diligently and gracefully in everything she could do for her church.  She was kind to all and would never turn you away.

Isles (who went home to   Glory 7 years ago.)  They reared 3 sons and 1 daughter:  James Deric Isles (Pamela), Jeffrey Keith Isles (Gloria), Anthony McNeil Glenn (Sharon), Princess Renee Patterson (Kenny) and a “sisterly” niece; Helen Marie Leach all surviving with children and grandchildren.
