Chappel Jr., Rev. Donald Mauruce  
Dec. 22, 1919-Dec. 15, 2014 Rev. Donald Maurice Chappel Jr. of Woodland, CA., formally of Trinidad, CA., passed away December 15th, 2014, one week before his 95th birthday. He was born December 22, 1919 to the Rev. Donald Maurice Chappel and Rose (Jacobson) Chappel. His life truly started when he proposed "Grow old with me, the best is yet to be. (Robert Browning)" to Frances Mendenhall. They married in January 1943. Sadly war kept them apart most of their early marriage. Lt Donald M. Chappel served our country in the 82nd Airborne from 1941 to 1947 including several months as a German POW in Poland. But life brightened for the couple after his return. They were blessed with twins girls Ruth and Irene, a son Gregory and yet another daughter Elaine. Irene was lost to a medical condition when she was young. Reverend Chappel served a plethora of Methodist Churches including Bayville, New Egypt, Cookstown and West Belmar all in New Jersey and then in California, Christ's Church in Sacramento and Churches in Tranquility, San Joaquin, Klamath and Farmersville. Among other things, Papa Don loved to camp and deep sea fish. He loved to go for drives and just "see new things." His grandchildren treasured the opportunities to go with him on his outings. All of them have their own special stories about "when Papa Don did " He wouldn't sit still and he wouldn't let anyone around him sit still either. To paraphrase the quote from Secondhand Lions "This man, He really lived?", "Yeah, he REALLY lived." Reverend Chappel was preceded in death by his sisters Alice (who died as a child), Virginia and Carol, his daughter Irene and his beloved wife Frances. He is survived by 3 of his children, Ruth's husband and beloved son-in-law, Ed Roper whom he went flying with every chance he got, 8 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Psalms 127: "Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;" Services will be on December 29th at 11 a.m. at the Woodland United Methodist Church, 212 Second St. Woodland, CA. There will be a graveside service at 3:30 at Sierra Hills Memorial Park and East Lawn Mortuary, 5757 Greenback Lane, Sacramento, CA 95841. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Woodland United Methodist Church, the Arcata United Methodist Church or Yolo Hospice.

Dutton, George Raymond  
Dec. 18, 1950-Dec. 22, 2014 George died peacefully at home after a brave, long battle with cancer. He loved his family and adored his grandchildren. He was happily married for 29 years and was a devoted husband and father. He served his country in Viet Nam and worked for San Quentin for 15 years, retiring as a Correctional Sergeant. He was also a slot technician and repairman. George and his wife enjoyed many travels, and especially their recent trips to Maui and Alaska. He had a Fatboy HD and he and Ida enjoyed many rides together along the Sacramento Old River Road. He loved boating on Folsom Lake with his wife and kids on long, hot summer days. He loved photography and was never seen at family functions without his video camera or Nikon. He was a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan, and never missed watching a game. In fact, the last TV show he watched was their most recent game, and the Cowboys won it for him. We managed to celebrate his birthday and Christmas a little early and we're so glad that he was able to enjoy his grandchildren opening the presents that he so carefully picked out for them. George lived life to the fullest and had no regrets. He will be forever remembered for his saying, "It's all good." A very special thank you to Drs. Yee and Reichert at Woodland Healthcare. George is survived by his loving wife, Ida; daughters, Katherine and Margie Dutton; Gina Bearquiver; Tia Sam, and Danielle Overfield; brothers Gene Toste and Bobby Peek, sister Jenny Garrett, 5 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. He was preceded in death by his parents George Washington and Katherine Ellen Dutton, and brother Ron. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 31 at 9:00 a.m. at McNary's Chapel, 458 College St. in Woodland. Burial will follow at 11:00 a.m. at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Rd. in Dixon. Contributions in George's memory can be made to the Cancer Society of Northern California.
