SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Valborg Josephine “Jo” Arons (90), AKA “JoMamma,” passed away peacefully with her family by her side. Our family is comforted knowing that she is together again with her husband Richard “Dick” Arons, who preceded her in death almost 20 years ago on June 6th, 1998.
The Arons have been in San Clemente since 1951 and are the owners of South Coast Distributing Company. Jo touched many in our small community with her thoughtful and giving nature. As a mother of five boys and one girl, she was constantly involved in local activities. She loved music and to travel and was an avid painter whose work will be cherished for years to come.
Jo is survived by sons, Scott, Rick (Marina), Tom (Luci), Paul, Curt (Angel) and daughter Katie. She has three grandchildren, April, Adam and Kaila Arons and three great grandchildren Kayson and Karys Adams and Aidan Arons – all of San Clemente, CA.
