Jane Kellogg Baggott (1926 – 2016)

Jane Kellogg Baggott November 6, 1926 – March 31, 2016 LA JOLLA, CA – Jane Kellogg Baggott, a.k.a. Desdy Kellogg, left this world on March 31, 2016 at her home in La Canada, CA with her daughter, Jane Kellogg, by her side. She fought a long and hard battle with cancer, extending her life for more than two and half years beyond the initial pronouncement of three months. During those two and a half years, she made the most of her extra time on earth and accomplished more in that time than many people accomplish in a lifetime. This was a testament to the amazing and talented woman she was. Desdy was born in La Jolla, CA to William and Helen Jackson. Her maiden name was Jane Catherine Jackson. As she put it herself, “I was born there so long ago that the most controversial issue in town was whether or not to remove the horse watering trough from the center of Girard Avenue”. This would have been an important issue for her because one of her lifelong passions was horses. Her first riding lessons were at the Del Charro Woods stables in La Jolla Shores (no longer there) and she told us stories of riding on the beach, riding to the top of Mt. Soledad for Saturday morning pancake breakfasts and riding across the mesa with the Meanley brothers to have barbecues at their house in Miramar Ranch. As she tells the story, she met her future father-in-law, William Scripps Kellogg while riding her horse along Ardath Road (La Jolla Parkway for those new to town). Mr. Kellogg...
