Dedicated and determined–just two of
the descriptions of Claremont's Judith
Campbell Wright, a true icon of the community
if there ever was one.
Ms. Wright, who died early on January
7, 2012 at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical
Center as a result of cardiac arrest,
was a giant pillar of the community in a
number of areas–from volunteer to activist
to civic leader and author.
Former Claremont resident William
Dale died on January 1, 2012 at Pomona
Valley Hospital after a long illness. Age
78, Mr. Dale was surrounded by family at
the time of his death.
Mr. Dale was born August 29, 1933 on
the island of Guam to Joe W. Dale, a career
naval medic, and his wife, the former
Sara Middleton of Pomona. With his family,
Mr. Dale came back to the US in
1935, settling in San Diego.
