Valiant Woman of the Scriptures is a model for Isola Gardemal Jaubert, who
was as near a member of the Knights of Columbus as a lady can become. The
wife and chief mainstay of Charles C. Jaubert, she shared her husband's
enthusiasm for our Order, and was his constant companion in his many
travels on behalf of the Fourth Degree.

after her husband's death she maintained an active interest in assembly
affairs, and participated in as many of the assembly's social activities
as was possible for her.

of the Catholic Daughters longer than any other Louisiana member, for 60
years. She was also a 60-year member of the Altar Society in the
above-named three parishes, was a leader of the
John Vianney Club for 40 years, and was active in the Sacred Heart
-League, the Lake Charles Deanery Human Relations Council and the Apostle-
