Isabel Elizabeth Ault, age 96, a longtime resident of Urbana, Ohio, passed away on July 17, 2017. She was born October 20, 1920, in Attica, OH, the daughter of Alvin and Marguerite Aichholz. Upon graduating from Attica High School, Isabel left the family farm and moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she and her sister, Mildred, opened a beauty salon on North High Street. In 1948, Isabel married optician, Dr. Robert "Doc" Ault. In 1950 they moved to Urbana, Ohio where they raised four children. In 2014 they moved into assisted living in Columbus, Ohio. Isabel was a loving wife, a caring mother and proud grandmother. As a gifted homemaker, she took on every imaginable chore from refinishing furniture to hanging wallpaper. She was accomplished at sewing, knitting, quilting and gardening. Isabel was a fabulous cook and baker who loved to entertain. Her family will cherish the wonderful memories of her famous holiday dinner rolls and her blue-ribbon pies. Isabel was also an enthusiastic bridge player who enjoyed both the mental challenge of the game and the time she shared with her close friends. Isabel was an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Urbana and will be especially remembered for the hand sewn Holiday quilts that she made every year for the annual church bazaar. Most importantly, Isabel will be remembered for her kind spirit and generosity. She worked hard for her family everyday, without complaint. She strived to live a Christian life, never judging and only seeing the good in people. Isabel was preceded in death by siblings Evelyn, Madonna, Mildred, Gilbert, and Eugene.
