Dogged by Health Problems

Isabel Granada had been having health problems for about a decade, since the mid-2000s. Granada underwent oophorectomy of her right ovary after the development of a cyst in 2006 and had to undergo the procedure again after two cysts were discovered on her left ovary. She was also treated for the removal of a benign tumor in her uterus in 2008.

Granada was visiting Qatar with Cowley on a business trip, when on October 25, 2017, she fell into a coma after suffering six cardiac arrests. She was rushed to the hospital in Doha where doctors immediately attended to her. However, it was too late, as she was declared brain dead.

After Granada’s death, a relative named Joseph Rivera wrote in a Facebook post, “It is with great sadness and grief that my cousin Isabel Granada peacefully joined our creator at 18:00 today with the comfort of the family.”

Cowley also posted a statement on his Facebook account where he mourned the tragic death of his wife.

Oh how I wish that I can hold you around my arms again. Oh how I wish that I can have another day with you. Part of me…
