Coy La Pierre said his son came home from the hospital four days ago and "he's recovering," La Pierre said.
Coy La Pierre said his mother sold self-defense products to women to teach them how to defend themselves through a company called Damsel in Defense. He said she was very passionate about her work and her activities in life.
"She was," La Pierre said, in response to a comment that his mother sounded like a great person.
Coy La Pierre confirmed earlier published reports that his mother was born in Modesto on Feb. 24, 1949 to Fred and Francis Evans. She married Larry La Pierre in 1964, and the couple moved to Napa.
Coy La Pierre also confirmed that surviving, besides Coy, her husband Larry and grandson Jacob, are: a daughter, Pam La Pierre Rossi; a granddaughter, Raelynn Whitmire; another grandson, Matthew La Pierre; a sister, Lois McCutcheon of Arkansas; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
Claffey and Rota Funeral Home in Napa handled the arrangements.
