Isa E. Wallace England

Isa E. Wallace England, affectionately known as Ms. Isa, Ms. Wallace, Mrs. England, and Nene, passed away at the golden age of 94 on May 30, 2022, in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Isa was born Nov. 20, 1927, on the quaint island of St. Thomas to Martha Elizabeth “Fama” Barry and Alphonse Leopold Wallace. After graduating from Charlotte Amalie High School in 1947, Isa began her vocation in 1950 as a nurse’s aide for four years. As a result of legislation, the Virgin Islands established its first practical nurse’s program, to which she was among the first applicants. In the next few years of her nursing career, she worked in the tuberculosis ward, the medical surgical ward, and the Emergency Room before eventually settling into the neuro-psychiatric ward for the next 29 years. After spending 36-plus years working at all three hospitals: the Municipal Hospital, the Knud Hansen Memorial Hospital, and the St. Thomas Hospital, now Schneider Regional Medical Center, Isa finally retired in 1987.

In the years following the death of her beloved husband, Reuben Edwardo England, she spent more time loving and caring for her nieces and nephews.
