Isabelle M. Heldenbrand



Cameron, Missouri- Isabelle “Charlie” Marie Heldenbrand, 89, Cameron, formerly of Winston, passed away May 20, 2020.

She was born in Starkville, Colorado on November 2, 1930.

She was the last surviving child of twelve children of Jose Bicente and Francisquita Auerlia (Sevada) Fernandez.


Charlie’s life work has been in caring for others.  She began her nursing career in Trinidad, Colorado in 1950. She retired from the Cameron Community Hospital with over 40 years of service.  She worked in all areas of the hospital; the floor, maternity, ER, surgery…..Her long nursing career has brought her full circle- happiness of birth to the sadness of death, and everything in between. Once a nurse, always a nurse.


Her relationship with Jesus Christ was the foundation which made her a wonderful, Christian woman.  The instilling of honesty, knowing right from wrong, the teaching of morals and values, the unconditional giving, all of this is because of her faith in God.  Love was at the center of all she did for her family, patients, and community.


She is preceded in death by her life-long husband, A.C. Heldenbrand. They met while he was stationed in Colorado. They married on February 17, 1956 in Trinidad, Colorado. Her parents; 2 sons- in- law, John Yeager and Carl Hullinger; 1 great-grandson and 2 great-granddaughters also precede her. 


Survivors: 3 daughters, Theresa Yeager, Columbia, MO, Pam (Allen) Jones, Cameron, MO and Renee Hullinger, Winston, MO; 3 sons, Andy Heldenbrand, Patterson, LA, Marty Heldenbrand, St. Joseph, MO and Brian (Tammy) Heldenbrand, Rolla, MO; 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchild
