Jane Kellogg Baggott Obituary
November 6, 1926 - March 31, 2016 Jane Kellogg Baggott, a.k.a. Desdy Kellogg, left this world on March 31, 2016 at her home in La Cañada, CA with her daughter, Jane Kellogg, by her side after a long and hard battle with cancer. Desdy was born November 6, 1926 in La Jolla, CA to William and Helen Jackson and married William Crowe Kellogg in 1950. Desdy and Will lived most of their married life in Altadena, CA where they raised a family of four children: Bill, Bob, Fred and Jane. Desdy was an accomplished horsewoman and developed a lifelong passion for art. She was well-known in the community as a sculptress and painter. She held frequent art shows in Altadena, supported the arts in many ways and promoted the works of Elena Scripps Kellogg. Elena, an accomplished horsewoman herself, acquired the Altadena Stables and eventually gifted the stables to Desdy and Will, who made many improvements. Today, the Altadena Stables is a gem tucked away on the side of the Arroyo Seco. Desdy added Danny's School to the property, a school dedicated to teaching autistic kids. After Will passed away in 1989 Desdy remarried. Her marriage to Charles Baggott brought her to La Cañada, where they resided for the rest of her life. Desdy was a member of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, Valley Hunt Club, the Altadena Town & Country Club, the Athenaeum, the Flintridge Riding Club, the California Art Club, and the American Saddlebred Breeder's Association among many others. She was always a "force to be reckoned with," a compassionate and caring person who made a huge positive difference in many peoples' lives, and a person who lived life to the fullest. She is survived by her husband, Charles Baggott, her brother, Robert Jackson, her four children, William J. Kellogg, Robert P. Kellogg, Frederick C. Kellogg and Jane J. Kellogg, twelve grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Services will be held at the Mountain View Cemetery Chapel, 2400 Fair Oaks Avenue, Altadena, CA 91011 at 11:00am on Wednesday, April 6, 2016.
