Stacy Kristine Phelps

Albert A. Hugon


Chester resident Stacy Kristine Phelps peacefully passed from this life with her husband at her side Monday afternoon, Nov. 19, 2012, at Seneca Healthcare District’s hospital in Chester. With unparalleled grace and dignity Stacy accepted her terminal diagnosis of cancer.

  Born April 26, 1976, to Mark and Carol (Clemens) Jacobs in Mount Shasta, Stacy was raised and educated in the Dunsmuir area of northeastern California. She moved to Chester in 2005 from Kansas. Here, while attending a Chester Elementary PTA Carnival, she met a handsome young gentleman named Brian Phelps who stole her heart when he not only asked her out to dinner but also accepted her three children and their friends on their first date. The couple was united in marriage in July 2008, a union that combined two sons and two daughters.

  Although Stacy worked for both Gary Whitmire and for Bailey Creek for brief periods of time, her passion in life was caring for her family. She was a member of the Chester PTA as well as the Boosters and was an active volunteer for anything her children were involved in.

  In passing Stacy leaves her loving husband, Brian, of Chester; her children Kevin Washington, Dominic Jacobs, Cheyenne Washington and Danica Phelps, all of Chester; parents Mark Jacobs and LaVon Clemens, both of Chester; grandparents Carol Jacobs, of Foresthill, and Jerry and Carol Clemens, of Dunsmuir; brothers Michael Jacobs and wife Candice, of Chester, Isaac Jacobs, of Kansas, and Christopher Roe, of Redding; sisters Gabrilla Jacobs, of Anderson, and Rachel Lind, of Medford, Ore.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

  A celebration of Stacy’s life will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Almanor Recreation Center.

  An opportunity to express condolences to the family and sign the memorial guest register is available online at fehrmanmortuary.com.

  The family asks that any remembrances in Stacy’s memory be made to Brian Phelps, c/o Fehrman Mortuary and Crematory, P.O. Box 803, Greenville, CA 95947, to help defray final expenses. The family is sincerely appreciative of all the community has provided through their time of need.


  Retired California Highway Patrol officer Albert A. “Al” Hugon passed from this life early Wednesday morning, Nov. 21, 2012, at the Seneca Healthcare District hospital at the age of 93.

  Al was a native of Villar Pellice, Italy, born Oct. 6, 1919, to Prosper and Virginia Hugon. The family immigrated to the United States when Al was a young child. The family settled in Monterey, where Al graduated from Monterey High School. He joined the United States Navy shortly following graduation from high school and served his country honorably as an aviation radioman during World War II.

  Following his discharge, Al returned home to continue his education at an art college in San Francisco. Unable to find employment as an artist, Al entered the CHP Academy and upon completion served as a motorcycle patrolman in the Los Angeles Basin for five years before moving to the northeastern California community of Chester in 1956 where he was the resident patrolman until retiring in 1976.

  Following the passing of his first wife, Mary, he reacquainted himself with Ruth, a longtime friend. The couple was later married in the Chester Community United Methodist Church — a marriage that lasted until April of this year when Ruth passed from this life.

  Al was an accomplished artist who enjoyed painting seascapes in watercolors, as well as working with stained glass alongside his wife. He enjoyed the outdoors through hunting and fishing and was a longtime member of the Chester American Legion Post as well as the California State Retirees Association.

  In passing Al leaves his stepdaughter, Carol Lee Barenchi and her husband Rick, of Chester; step-granddaughters Teresa, Tracy and Angela; and nephews Albert and Deno Hugon.

  He joins his loving wife, Ruth, stepson Steven Hunt and brother Skip in their eternal home.

  Military honors will take place at the graveside in the Chester District Cemetery on Wednesday, Nov. 28.
