Jamesie Henderson Johnson
February 6, 1917 - March 3, 2004

Long-time Coronado resident Jamesie Johnson, 87, died in Philadelphia, Penn. March 3.

Jay was born in San Francisco as the eldest of the three daughters of Alva and Freda Henderson. She grew up in Coronado, graduating from Coronado High School in 1934. Jay attended Occidental College in Los Angeles, where she served as president of the Gamma Kappa Theta sorority and graduated with a degree in sociology in 1938. After graduation, Jay married Silas Johnson and they went to live in Liberia on the west coast of Africa.

Si and Jay returned to Pasadena in 1940, and after the war made their home there until 1967, when they retired and returned to Coronado. In Pasadena and later in nearby La Cañada, Jay was active in the Officers' Wives Club, the Thursday Club and Occidental's Gamma Kappa Theta sorority. She helped Si with his educational film business and assisted in Girl Scouts, Job's Daughters and the Band Mothers Group.

In Coronado, Jay served as president of the First Mates at the Coronado Yacht Club, was active in the Presbyterian Church and worked for many years as a volunteer at the Church's Thrift Cottage. Jay loved to garden, swim and to participate in Yacht Club cruises, whether at an evening raft-up in South Bay or spending much of August at Cherry Cove in Catalina. She enjoyed traveling and made a number of trips to Mexico, visited the Caribbean and spent many summers in New England.

Jay had lived in Philadelphia for the past 2 years. Her two daughters, Kathryn Johnson of Philadelphia and Pamela Ploeger of White River Junction, Vt., survive her. Si passed away in Coronado in 1998 and Jay's sisters Fran Bird and Betty Pittman also predeceased her.

A memorial service will be held at Point Loma Presbyterian Church on Saturday, May 22 at 2 pm.

Annabelle Amelia Talmadge

Annabelle Amelia Talmadge was born to Mr. and Mrs. Victor H. Rylander in Chicago, Ill., December 8, 1922.

Her father was transferred to Gary, Ind., where she started school. She loved academics and participating in athletic events. For one brief moment (during a telegraphic swimming meet) she was the Indiana State Backstroke Champion. She attended Valparaiso University, then in 1946 married Ensign Charles J. Talmadge, a Navy pilot. Thus began her life as a Navy wife and tours of many duty stations where she formed many life-long friendships. Her son Gene was born in Norfolk, Va. and her son Robert was born in Gary, Ind. She became involved in Little League Baseball and Cub Scouts with her two sons. She also worked for the Coronado Unified School District as secretary to the district psychologist. After Charles retired from the Navy in 1965, the family stayed on in their home in Coronado. Together, Charles and Annabelle enjoyed bridge, golf, reading and traveling to some fifty countries. She was very active in several church organizations.

She leaves behind her beloved ones, her husband Charles; sons Gene and Rob; daughters-in-law Janet and Susan; grandchildren Danika, Erik, and Madeya; and brother and sister-in-law, Ed and Lucille Rylander of San Diego.

Marvel A. Davis
October 14, 1923 - March 28, 2004

Marvel Anderson Davis, age 80, died March 28 at the San Diego Hospice Inpatient Care Center.

She was born in Ogden, Utah, where she graduated from Ogden High School, attended Weber College and married Army Captain Robert J. Davis Dec. 11, 1942. As an Army wife throughout Robert's 22-year military career, Marvel made homes for their family in settings that included a Quonset hut on Okinawa; a riverfront apartment in Verona, Italy; a duplex, complete with visiting moose, in Fort Richardson, Alaska; and more conventional homes in Arlington, Va., Columbus, Ohio, and Coronado, where she and Robert retired from the Army in 1962.

Marvel's family fondly remembers her unique brand of humor and her unwavering support of the Chargers and the Padres. She also had a keen interest in fashion, which was expressed throughout her life by her impeccable dress and appearance. From the late 1960s through the mid- 1970s, Marvel put her eye for women's fashion to good use as a part-time sales associate at Coury's in Coronado.

Marvel Davis is survived by her husband of 61 years, Robert; daughter Martha (Phillip) Marsden of Coronado; son Robert Jr. (Cecile) of Vienna, Va., and Coronado; sisters Lucille Earls of Medford, Ore., and Sharon Anderson of Escondido; grandchildren Scott and David Marsden and Maren, Robert III and Paige Davis; and several nieces and nephews.

Private family services will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to San Diego Hospice, 4311 Third Avenue, San Diego 92103.

Harriette Hubbard Newell
Harriette was born in Allentown, Pa. She and her brother were just barely in school when they moved to Westchester County, where they lived while their father taught music at the Julliard School of Music in New York, N.Y.

She started her lifelong practice of caring for others in junior high school when her mother became an invalid and Harriette bore the burden for the whole family, taking care of her home.

When her minister saw her burdens at home he gave her the opportunity to work as the church secretary, brightening her life and giving her a chance to blossom into the beautiful woman we have all come to love. He became a lifelong friend.

In high school she met Fred Newell. When Fred returned from World War II, they married and Harriette joined Fred at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn.,

With a couple of stops along the way, they soon settled in Fairfield, Conn. with three wonderful additions to the family; Nancy, Terry and Kay. In addition to taking on the full-time job of raising three children and an Irish Setter (and taking care of Fred), it was in Fairfield that Harriette made many of her lifelong friends and began her career as a dedicated volunteer. Her contributions to the community are too numerous to list, but to name a few, she started the first blood bank in Fairfield, was director of volunteers for the Junior League, and served on the board of the Woodfield Home for Unwed Mothers. She also threw great parties in her home and at the beach, which became "must attend" events.

Fred's career led them to a lovely golf course setting below Mount Diablo in Northern California. In Alamo, she was deeply involved in supporting Fred's career, supporting her growing children and active in her church community.

When the last offspring was out of the house, they wanted to get out of that miserable cold and fog of Northern California, and found the most beautiful part of Southern California - Coronado Island - in 1977. Harriette jumped right into the Coronado community and became an active volunteer and leader. A few of her accomplishments include: President of Soroptimist International of Coronado, president of the Coronado Republican Women, Patron of F.O.C.U.S., and being active in the Coronado Women's Club, Coronado Cays Yacht Club C-Gulls, the Coronets and the Star of India Auxiliary. Through these activities, she made many wonderful and deep friendships.

Her interests included fine art and the fine art of conversation, music, stuffed animals (123 bears and one lovable dog), and of course, her husband, her children, her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Harriette was the consummate letter writer and "networker," never failing to keep in touch with new and old friends and family. Throughout her life and even until the end, she was the connection for family and friends, with her letter writing, phone calls and visits.

When asked about her greatest accomplishments, she could easily list them: Fred, Nancy, Terry, Kay (and their spouses), 8 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Frederick B. Newell, Jr.; her children, Nancy Lurty, Frederick B. Newell, III and Kay Lemon; and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
