Jan Peebles

Jan Peebles passed away suddenly of a broken heart on March 25, 2022, one day before her son’s memorial. She was loved by many and missed by all. Jan was born on June 27, 1943 in Berkeley, CA, and lived her formative years in Long Beach, CA. She graduated with a teaching credential from Cal State Long Beach in 1963 and moved to El Segundo with her first husband, Tom Pickard, and two children, Kelly and Don, in 1967. After the children entered school, Jan began her teaching career at Center Street School in El Segundo in 1971 and continued with the district for over 30 years. In addition to being a teacher, many knew Jan (or later found out) that she was Mrs. Claus in the El Segundo Christmas parade. Jan loved to decorate her home and entertain, especially during Christmas. She was generous in spirit and bought thoughtful gifts for everyone. Her legacy is her family, as well as the hundreds of children that she taught in El Segundo. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Thelma Smith and James Heaton; her second husband of 22 years, Daniel David Peebles; and her son, Don Curtis Pickard. She is survived by her sister, Jimmie Inkman and her husband Ed; son Kelly and his wife Kimberly; three granddaughters, Hannah Pickard, Laura Pickard, and Leona Pickard; two grandsons, Benny Pickard and Tom Pickard; as well as children and grandchildren from her second marriage. Services are planned at Douglass Mortuary in El Segundo on Saturday, May 7 at 2:30 pm. The family thanks the community for their love and support. Mask are appreciated during the memorial service.

Christopher Ramiscal

It is with the deepest of sorrows, Christopher Kalani Ramiscal (Cree), age 47 beloved son, brother, and uncle, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 while at home in El Segundo, CA. Chris was born in Merced, California at Castle AFB to Reuben and Tihn Ramiscal on December 11, 1973. After his father’s military service was completed, Chris’s family moved to Southern California where he attended Venture School in Culver City for High School studies and college prep. He eventually earned his high school diploma and attended DeVry University for Business Management and Accounting. He also strived for accomplishments in many other fields by constantly working hard toward his goals in life. In all his endeavors, it was important to Chris that he remain close to his family. Chris was a very talented videographer and photographer who absolutely loved the art of creating videos and taking pictures of people he loved and people who fascinated him. He was an avid car enthusiast, loved ocean fishing, always made plans to go on camping trips, and was very passionate about the welfare of animals.  He planned to buy an RV to travel around the U S with an orange cat and a dog.  He was a foodie and loved grabbing Korean breakfasts on the weekends with his father and loved exploring new restaurants in Los Angeles.  Chris was greatly beloved by all who knew him, he had an infectious smile that always seemed to brighten your day. He could always be counted on to raise the spirits of those around him with his quick wit and boisterous laughter. For Chris, family was most important in his life, and he always took the opportunity to make sure they knew he loved and cared about them. Those who have had an opportunity to meet Chris would always describe him as a guy that can make anyone laugh. He is survived by his father, Reuben, and siblings, Dianna, and Jacquie.  Chris will truly be missed and will always be loved by all the friends and families he touched. The memorial and life celebration will be held at a private family gathering and because of Chris’s love of the ocean and fishing, his ashes will be spread in the Pacific Ocean.
