Carrie Donnabelle Pierceall Obituary
Age 91, departed this world on January 20, 2018, but left behind memories in every slice of strawberry cream jello, bite of a chocolate- covered peanut butter ball and snuggle with one of her many crocheted blankets.
Born July 3, 1926 in Brownville, Neb. along the Missouri River, Donnabelle married schoolmate Charles "Walt" Pierceall in 1943 and waited as her husband, wounded in World War II, returned home. With a promise they would visit Nebraska at least once a year, the couple moved to California for drier air in 1950 where they raised four children in the Jurupa home Walt built. It was near that home where Donnabelle spent much of her 29 years working at Glen Avon Elementary School in the cafeteria, eventually managing the entire operation.
Donnabelle was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Charles "Walt" Pierceall; their son Leon and granddaughter Donna. She is survived by her sisters Carol and Shirley; brother Larry; children Beverly Gomez, Lyle Pierceall (Debbie) and Glenna Pierceall; seven grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and five great- great grandchildren.
A funeral mass will be held at St. Mel's Catholic Church at 4140 Corona Ave. in Norco at 10 a.m. Tuesday (Jan. 30) followed by an 11:30 a.m. graveside blessing and dove release at Pierce Bros. Crestlawn at 11500 Crestlawn Ave. in Riverside. A reception will be held at St. Mel's hall following the graveside service.
