Carol L. Taunton–Oct. 23, 1940 to May 1, 2002

Long-time Scripps Ranch resident Carol Taunton died at home on May 1, having spent her last days surrounded by those who loved her. Carol was an intelligent, principled woman who touched many lives with her kindness and wit. She cared deeply about justice and fairness for all.

She loved cleanliness, organization, beautiful things, and tools of every kind. She was a wonderful cook. Dinner at her house was never on time, but always worth waiting for. She felt her greatest achievement was raising her granddaughter, Brittany, who is beautiful, talented, and has always made her proud. Carol is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Denise and David Ouellette, and Lesa Danielle and Michael Henderson, and her grandchildren Brittany, Josh, Mick, Jake, Travis, and Kinsey.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: San Diego Hospice, 4311 Third Ave., San Diego, CA 92103. The family wishes to thank the wonderful friends and neighbors who gave so much these past weeks. They also want people to know how much San Diego Hospice meant to them and what wonderful work the people there do.

Roger Raymond Dumont

Beloved Scripps Ranch resident Roger Raymond Dumont, 48, died of leukemia on May 17. A native of Augusta, Maine, Roger was a registered optician who managed several optical stores. Roger loved fly-fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, and photography. He was a supportive father of a girl scout, with a garage full of thousands of cookies to be distributed to troop members every winter. He and his family lived in Scripps Ranch for nine years.

Roger is survived by his wife of 20 years, Pauline (Polly) Thibault Dumont, their daughter, Lena Rose, 15, a freshman at Scripps Ranch High School, and two sisters, Jeanne Dumont and Ann St. Amand, both of Augusta, Maine.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested donations be made to: San Diego Hospice, 4311 Third Ave., San Diego, CA 92103. San Diego Hospice assisted in Roger’s journey to heaven.
