Charlotte Irene Jacobs

July 8th, 1930 - January 19th, 2023

Charlotte Irene Jacobs died peacefully at home of natural causes on January 19 at the age of 92. Born in Pomona and raised in Chino by her parents Ted and Muriel Dunn, Charlotte was a proud graduate of Chino High School and the University of Redlands.  Charlotte put her music major from Redlands to good use, first as a music teacher at Vina Danks Junior High School for two years, then as a self-employed private piano teacher in her home for well over thirty years.

  In addition, she also found the time to direct children’s choirs at Upland and Ontario Methodist Churches, as well as being music teacher for preschoolers at Ontario Methodist Church.

An avid traveler, she visited countries all over the world on nearly every continent.  She especially thrived on vacation time with the family, particularly the annual stays on the beachfront at Newport Beach.

Charlotte took great pride in all of her family’s accomplishments in life, and watching her sons, grandkids, and great grandkids participate and excel in sports and dance was a favorite pastime which brought her great joy and pride.

Charlotte is survived by her sons Steven and Brian Jacobs, their wives Carol and Mary Ann, four grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.  She is also survived by her sister Pat Williams.  She is predeceased by her husband of fifty-six years Charles Jacobs.

Her remains will be placed in a crypt with Charles, where they will be together again for eternity.  The interment at Bellevue Mausoleum in Ontario will be a private family affair.

Peter Mow 
March 3rd, 1923 - January 16th, 2023

Peter W.T. Mow of Upland, passed away on January 16, 2023, less than two months before his
100 th birthday. He is survived by his children Ronald Mow (Joyce), Angeline Mow Vogl
(Harry), Michael Mow (JoAnn), Jeffrey Mow (Amy), as well as eight grandchildren and nine
Born in Shanghai, China, Peter was the youngest of five children, whose American-educated
father was a physician in the city’s International Settlement. During WWII, he was a
photographer for the Chinese government, a pursuit he continued after the war, working in India
for the China National Aviation Corporation. He married Tsupin Mow in 1944, when they were
both stationed in India (she worked for the RAF). Following the war, the couple emigrated to
the United States -- Peter in 1948, to enroll at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, and Pin the
following year. Following graduation, Peter worked as a cameraman for different enterprises but
finally settled at Prudential Insurance Company’s Western Home Office on Wilshire Boulevard,
where he rose to the position of director of group contracts; he retired after more than 30 years
with Prudential.
Living in North Hollywood and later in Upland, Peter and Pin were active members of the
Episcopal Church and other organizations, such as Meals on Wheels and the Foothill Family
Shelter in Upland. Peter’s interests included golf, photography, and classical music. He and Pin
were also avid world travelers (Las Vegas was a frequent destination) and accomplished cooks
who loved sharing their love of Chinese cooking with others (their hot pot dinners were
legendary and Peter’s steamed fish recipe was published in Bon App├ętit magazine). Perhaps he
drew his greatest joy from his family; he delighted in sharing the accomplishments of his
children and grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held at St. Marks Episcopal Church on Saturday, March 11, at 10:30
am. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Foothill Family Shelter, 1501 W 9th St D,

Charles Russel West 

July 3, 1934-December 29, 2022

Charles "Chuck" West was born in Indianapolis, Indiana to Cecil & Elma (Ethel) West.

He was the only surviving boy in a house full of women... 4 sisters! He attended

Washington High School and escaped the draft by being the only male in the family.

One of his first jobs was as an airplane fueler at the local airport, and one of his loves

was flying airplanes. This profession was not to be, however, because he soon met the

love of his life. Ruth Ann Richardson was carhopping at the local drive in- “Joby’s” and

Chuck said to his cousin Duane: "I’m going to marry that girl..."

That he did, on December 24, 1953. Soon to come were 3 boys: Lenny, Kenny, and

Chuck, all within 3 years. The young couple settled in Lakewood, CA. where he worked

as a machinist. Billy came 14 years later, and around the same time Chuck and

Ruth took on their niece, Rhonda, and she immediately became their only daughter.

Chuck and Ruth decided to take an abrupt turn in their lives in 1971 and opened a local

service business in Mission Viejo, Ca., West Pool Supply. Eighteen years in the pool

business served them well, with some of the boys following in their footsteps.

In 1989 Ruth and Chuck sold the business and “retired” in Morgan, Utah, on the same

street as all their best friends. "Pop" picked up his original craft and opened a machine

shop. He made blades for snowmobiles, airplane parts, and even computer


He enjoyed snowmobiling, golf, hunting, and bowling. He was an exceptional bowler,

with a common score of 298. The "retirement" in Utah lasted until 2006, when they

briefly moved back to CA, and then ultimately settled in Bullhead City, AZ.

Pop enjoyed boating on the river and playing at the casinos in Laughlin NV, but he just

couldn't handle not working. So, he drove a taxi for a while, but his favorite job became

driving a bus full of kids to and from the local high school. He loved the kids on the

bus almost as much as he loved his own.

He worked until he couldn't work anymore, not for lack of effort, but due to the


Chuck and Ruth were married for 69 years on Christmas Eve.

Chuck was an athlete - the "O.G. West." He was a patriot, a patriarch, and a fighter

until the very end. He didn't ask for much, only his sweetheart sitting constantly by his

side. His Faith in God was always evident, and we are confident that he has met his

creator, and is cracking jokes with his best friend Jerry.

He is survived by the love of his life, his 4 boys, his daughter, 3 daughters in law, son in

law, 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, and three sisters: Karol Weiman of

Ramona, Ca., Marilyn Doyle of Ramona, Ca., Vicki Laursen of Sioux Falls, SD..

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Sun & Sail Club Lake Forest, Ca. on Feb 5,

2023 at 1pm. 24752 Toledo Ln. Lake Forest, Ca. 92630

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, a small donation be made to Wounded

Warriors in his honor.

When Lillian was five years old she immigrated to the US with her mother on July 31, 1959 and was then raised in Santa Barbara Ca.

Lillian enjoyed all the jobs she ever had. In her younger years she was a legal secretary and drove a huge motorcycle back and forth to work each day. This was when women rarely rode motorcycles. Lillian didn't care what anybody thought of her. If Lillian enjoyed something she would just do it. Later on in life Lillian became a long haul truck driver and had to deal with some flack from male truck drivers but she loved to drive and would take their comments in stride. She was so good spirited. After her truck driving days and after her husband Chet retired Lillian would drive cross country in a motorhome for enjoyment.

Lillian was a self taught professional photographer and would photograph horse shows. Lillian loved horses and had several throughout her lifetime. She fell in love with Purvian Paso horses and had one Purvian Paso name Despo that gave her so much love and joy. Lillian had so much joy when she would talk about being around the horse community around Riverside County. The horse community meant so much to her.

Lillian is survived by her husband Chester Thurston III, her brother Ted Hotchkiss and her sister Jean Hotchkiss

           PASSED AUGUST 23, 2022 MURRIETA, CA 



Robert (Bob) Yeager, 80, of Rialto, passed away Tuesday, August 9th of a broken heart. 

Born in Oklahoma, he moved to Kansas as a teen with his family.  Being tall, smart and humorous he had no shortage of girlfriends (once going "steady" with girls from different towns at the same time...until it turned out they were best friends and he got caught!).  That all changed when he met a small-town girl and the love of his life, Mary Donham, and he was smitten, telling his mother he had just met the girl he was going to marry. 

The two were soon married and the high school valedictorian turned college basketball and baseball (also playing semi-pro) jock turned his sights to a career.  He loved the thought of flying but discovered he was too tall to become a miliary pilot. But with his love of science and flair for math, he instead pursued aerospace engineering.  Shortly after marriage he and his wife moved to Alabama where they both worked for NASA via Boeing and he worked on the Saturn V moon shot rocket, one of his proudest accomplishments. He went on in his 40+ year career to work on the space shuttle, the stealth fighter jet and other miliary aircraft.  

Bob loved science, history, comedians and video games (even teaching his grandkids a thing or two). He was quick with a joke..."Watch out! There are garments on your back.  And I bet you have ancestors too!".  And he always brought up funny stories of family adventures every time he talked to someone, family member or not. 

Bob and Mary had three children, Theresa, Brian and Eric, who he taught to love and respect nature, how to fish and how to think for themselves. Predeceased by Mary, his wife and best friend, he is survived by his three children, his daughters-in-law, Rachel and Gena and his six grandchildren, Brandon, Jason, Ashley, Ezekiel, Abigail and step-grandson Jacob. 

The funeral service for Bob will be held at the chapel at the Hermosa Gardens Cemetery in Colton on Friday, Sept 2nd at 10 am.

Jody Ann Collins

 On August 12th heaven literally received a praying angel.   Perhaps her prayers in heaven were now needed more than on earth.  

Jody Ann Collins 81 of Murrieta, California died on Friday, August 12, 2022 of natural causes.

Jody was born November 9, 1940 .  She majored in Music at Wichita State University then moved to California at the age of 23.  

She was also a homemaker and also enjoyed teaching piano for many years.

She was known by many as the prayer warrior!  People were important to her.    A stranger quickly turned into a forever friend and would be placed on her prayer list the day she would meet them.   

She was a beloved mom, grandmother and friend.  She leaves behind her two daughters - Maria Tieu; Lori Phan Lofaro ; and her grandchildren Olivia Tieu; Nicholas Tieu; and Luke Lofaro

My brother/sister in faith,  I entrust you to God Who created you.

May you return to the One Who formed you from the dust of this earth.

May Mary, the angels, and all the saints come to meet you as you go forth from this life.

May Christ Who was crucified for you bring you freedom and peace.

May Christ, the Son of God, Who died for you take you into His kingdom.

May Christ, the Good Shepherd, give you a place within His flock.

May He forgive your sins and keep you among His people.

May you see your Redeemer face to face and bask in the light of God forever.
