OBIT Estelle Newcomb online 111418Estelle Newcomb passed away suddenly and peacefully from respiratory failure on October 18, 2018. Prior to becoming a recent resident of Palo Alto, she was a longtime resident of Los Altos and Pleasanton. Pre-deceased by her husband, Peter, and son, Steve, she is survived by her daughters, Caroline and Lucie, extended family and many friends.. Canadian by birth, Estelle, who became an American citizen, was known for being a kind, thoughtful contributor. She truly loved helping others. She was active in local charitable organizations wherever she lived. Her prior projects include the founding of the Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild and 40 years of volunteer leadership with the Mulberry Branch of Oakland Children's Hospital Auxiliary. Small in stature, great in heart, long on impact, Estelle will be remembered and cherished always. A Memorial Mass will be held locally in the coming months.
