Joan Allyson Chappell Obituary
Longtime San Pedro resident, Joan Allyson Chappell passed away in the loving arms of her son on August 1, 2010 after a valiant nine-year battle with breast cancer. Born at San Pedro Community Hospital on December 14, 1946, she was the daughter of Bill and Betty Clarke. She graduated from Inglewood High in 1964 and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design from UC Davis in 1969. She was an administrative assistant at Harbor College for the past 20 years. Among her artistic endeavors were sewing, baking, quilting and calligraphy. She was a loving daughter and mother who will be missed deeply by everyone whose life she touched. She was a living example of her favorite saying, "Create a life you love." She is survived by her mother Betty Clarke of San Pedro; her son, Hunter (Jennifer) of Alameda; her brother, Keith (JaDene) of Provo, Utah; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. There will be a viewing from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Green Hills Mortuary in Rancho Palos Verdes. Services will be at 3 p.m. Friday at Green Hills Memorial Park with graveside service to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center in Joan's name. http://www.cancer.ucla.edu or (310) 206-0675.
