  1. I haven't seen the Theroux's in many years, but have heard from them through my father Al Tager, as emails of news have been passed on. It was always nice to hear about Mr. & Mrs. and the girls we grew up with next door. The picture of Mrs. Theroux is as I have always remembered her, and always will. She was such a nice woman, along with the entire family. My thoughts and prayers are with the Theroux family. Ms. Theroux is probably once again right next door to Al and Evie Tager, talking about old times, and watching over their families from afar. Take care all, and please do keep in touch. Lee Tager (

    Was so sad to read of Isabelle's passing. What a great lady - and I have such good memories of growing up together on Ellsworth Drive. Good friends, good neighbors - too many memories to detail here.

    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
