Isabel Engley, affectionately known as Nanabelle, died on Dec. 7 in the Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, surrounded by her loving family. She was 83.

She was the beloved wife of Earle P. Engley.

Born in Providence, R.I., she was the daughter of the late Alexander and Isabella (Nelson) Miller. Isabel was a lifelong resident of Cumberland, R.I.

She enjoyed making jewelry in her spare time along with doing arts and crafts, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family especially her grandchildren on Martha’s Vineyard. She was an avid fan of Jimmy Buffett, and also enjoyed watching and reading about the Royal Family.

She was a weight watcher instructor for more than 35 years throughout southern New England. Isabel was one of the leading lecturers in the area.

Along with her husband she is survived by her children: Scott Caldwell of Cumberland and Glen Caldwell of Martha’s Vineyard; step-children Susan Engley-Jansen of Illinois, Mark S. Engley of Milton, Fla., and Mary-Kaye Sugurman of Wisconsin; three grandchildren, and many step-grandchildren and step great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by a daughter, Allison Caldwell.
