Donna Lee Holcombe was a remarkable woman. She was creative and lent her artistic touch to everything she did. She was beautiful, talented, and very stylish, and was fun-loving and had a great sense of humor, delighting all who knew her. She was born May 18, 1938, in Youngstown, Ohio, and spent her early childhood in Metamora, Indiana, a town her relatives founded in the early 1800's. Her family moved to California, where Donna attended San Dieguito High School. She was a cheerleader and it is where she met the love of her life, Robert Holcombe. They were married for 53 years. She is survived by her husband; two sons, Jeffrey and Timothy; daughters in law, Katie and Cheryl; grandchildren, Rachel, Nathan, Christine and Kimberly; great-grandchildren, Noah, Caleb, Leah and Riley; and brothers, Nick Laytart and Ben Laytart.

Her sons have carried on the design and construction business that Donna and Bob are renowned for. Donna loved to paint and she loved books. At one time she owned a bookstore in Rancho Santa Fe. She was a great cook and was known for her wonderful parties. She loved nature and the outdoors, and she and her family went on many camping trips, often with friends, to Baja Mexico and the Arizona desert. She was an avid gardener and a member of the RSF Garden Club, and for years was in charge of the Art Dept. of the Garden Club Annual Rummage Sale. Donna was very loving and compassionate towards animals and helped to place many pets into forever homes with her friends. She loved to play cards with her friends and had several groups she played with for over 50 years. Her memorial service was held at Meadowlark Church in San Marcos, and a party celebrating her life was hosted by Carole Warren and Shawn Primer at their home in Rancho Santa Fe, fittingly in the garden Donna designed several years before. Her son, Tim, a musician, performed beautiful gospel hymns that Donna loved with Peter Pupping assisting at the memorial service. She will be dearly missed but is in our hearts forever.

Talbot, Jack - La Jolla  
Jack Talbot died from pneumonia and congestive heart failure on March 13, 2015. Up until a week before his death, he was his old self walking the hills of La Jolla and doing his route downtown every day. He had an enthusiasm for life right up to the end. Jack was born in Washington, D.C., on September 4, 1921, to Mildred Watson Talbot and Leland Crowell Talbot. Leland Talbot was secretary to Congressman Allen Treadway. When the stint was up the family moved back to their home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. As a youth, Jack was an active Boy Scout, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout as a teen. During his time as a scout, he helped clear the slopes for what was to become Bousquets Ski Area. Jack was an active young man playing tennis, golf, skiing and playing hockey. He later was a member of the semi-pro hockey team, The Highlawn Jerseys, and taught hockey at Darrow School which he himself had attended. One of his students was future astronaut, Pete Conrad! Jack graduated from Williams College, majoring in geology, and was on the Williams College hockey team. He was tickled several weeks ago when, at age 93, the college asked him if he would like to be on the team for this year's alumni game. Jack served in World War II as Captain of the LCS (L) (3) 13 boat in the Pacific. The members of his crew were honored in 1995 for the assistance they offered to the USS Braine - DD630 destroyer which had been attacked by enemy fighters. After the war, Jack became a life and health insurance agent for the Berkshire Life Insurance Company. He was general agent of the Berkshire Life Insurance Agency in Pittsfield as well as a Chartered Life Underwriter, Registered Health Underwriter and Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow. He was top producer for many years. Jack was an active member of the Berkshire community, serving on the boards of Darrow School, The Country Club of Pittsfield, The Richmond Congregational Church, and the Pittsfield Kiwanis Club. He won the golf tournament at the Pittsfield Country Club in his 20s and went on to win the PCC tennis tournament several times. He loved to organize hockey games with the members at the Pittsfield Country Club in the winter. In 1975, he and his wife, Angela, packed up and moved to La Jolla, CA, where Angela had lived during high school and where much of her family lived. At age 55, Jack started the first agency of the Berkshire Life Insurance Company west of the Mississippi in San Diego and later became an independent broker. He kept his license active until his death. Jack was just as active in La Jolla and San Diego as he had been in western Massachusetts. He joined the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla, serving on the board and as President, and as a delivery person for Meals on Wheels until two weeks ago. He was an active and beloved member of the Congregational Church of La Jolla. As a member of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, Jack competed in many tennis tournaments. It was his goal to play in the over 80s tournament, but macular degeneration kept him from achieving that goal. He and his family loved to roller blade on Mission Bay and to snorkel in the ocean on a regular basis. At many La Jolla Christmas Parades, Jack and his friends and family could be seen roller blading for Meals on Wheels. Two books were written by Mr. Talbot, Marketing Insurance in Six Decades , published in 1991 and, Angela , about the life of his wife, in 2009. Jack was preceded in death by his sister, Carolyn in 1959; son, Michael in 1966; and his wife, Angela in 2008. He leaves behind his son, John "Jake" (Sondra) Talbot; daughter, Mary Talbot; granddaughter, Diana Talbot; and grandson, Maurice Taylor Roy. Services will be held at the Congregational Church of La Jolla on March 30, 2015, at 4pm and at the Richmond Congregational Church in Massachusetts sometime next fall. Donations may be given in his name to the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla.
