Irma E. (Kaplan) Isaacson, 87, formerly of Falmouth Heights and Framingham, died peacefully in her sleep Thursday, September 28th at Newbridge on the Charles in Dedham, MA, where she received wonderful care from the kind, competent and compassionate staff over the last six years. She was the devoted wife of the late George Howard Isaacson, and the daughter of the late Samuel M. Kaplan and the late Frances Seder Kahn, both of Worcester.
Born in Worcester, Irma settled in Framingham with George to raise their family.
