Did the mother of Jim H. Fetzer really kill herself? Eleanor Atwood (Waterhouse)


Eleanor Atwood (Waterhouse)  


He describes the California of his youth with a nostalgia common to people who lived there in the good old days. The Pasadena of Fetzer’s boyhood was a paradise, but there was trouble in the Fetzer household. His first conscious memory is one of family strife. He remembers standing outside the family home in Altadena while his father and mother were inside having an argument. Just then, a fire engine passed by. It’s the fire engine Fetzer recalls most vividly. He figures that’s because it served as a distraction from the emotional conflict.


Jim moved with his brother, mother, and new stepfather to La Habra Heights.

His mother commits suicide sometime this year.

It was a remote spot and, Fetzer says, his mother soon succumbed to feelings of isolation. “My mother needed people. She was a very sociable person,” Fetzer recalls. “I think she despaired that she made a mistake in divorcing my father.”
