Fort Lauderdale, FL/Wenham – Isabel Louise Palmquist, 78, wife of Roy Palmquist, passed away at her home in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday April 27, 2022. She was the beloved and only child of Richard and Grace Ann Lincoln.
Raised in Zanesville, Ohio, as a child Isabel enjoyed spending time with her grandmother and namesake and riding horses at her grandfather’s farm. In the spring of 1965 her sorority sister Josie invited her to spend the summer in Rockport, MA. Isabel had one condition – that Josie find her a boyfriend. Josie fulfilled her obligation and that summer, Isabel met her lifelong love Roy Palmquist. The two were married in the fall of 1966. After moving around some, they settled in Wenham, MA where they raised their three daughters Kristen, Diana and Sonja. Later in life Isabel and Roy divided their time between Fort Lauderdale and Jackson, NH. Her family was Isabel’s primary passion. She also enjoyed tending to her plants and was a voracious reader. Isabel and Roy traveled extensively, chartering boats in the Caribbean and Greek Isles with her cousins were some of Isabel’s fondest memories.
In addition to her husband and daughters Isabel leaves behind her sons-in-law Doug Silke of Palm Bay, FL, Steven Somers of Ipswich, MA and Jeffrey Vincola of Rowley, MA as well as grandsons Alexander and Maximilion Somers and Nicholas and Samuel Vincola.
