Isabelle C. (Gillis) Damaris, 90, of Brockton, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2018 at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton.  Born in East Boston, daughter of the late John and Anastasia (MacKinnon) Gillis, Isabelle spent most of her childhood in Randolph, graduating from Stetson High School in 1945, later receiving a secretarial certificate from Bryant and Stratton. She was employed as a teacher's aide in Brockton Public Schools and later retired from Catholic Charities in 2003. Her family and friends were the focal point of her life. She took pleasure in hosting family gatherings.
