Laura Rowan Peake
1941 - 2014, Santa Barbara
The passing of Laura Rowan Peake on Friday, June 27th, was noted with great sadness by those that had the luck or the blessing to be touched by the goodness and gravitas of this remarkable woman.
Born July 9th, 1941 in Pasadena, CA to the late Robert A. Rowan and Louise Hunter. Laura is survived by her four sons, Graham, Ziggy, Craig, Jaime and her daughter Satya.
A resident of Montecito for over 45 years, Laura moved to Carpinteria, close to Sandyland Cove, where she spent time as a child, after her home was consumed in the 2008 Tea Fire.
Laura was a familiar face in the Santa Barbara community with her many children, grandchildren, dogs and wide range of close friendships. The recurrent theme of Laura’s life was of passion, refinement, kindness, humor, joy, tolerance, generosity and lack of pretense.
Laura will be missed greatly by the community and her family, but her unique spirit and memory will never be forgotten by those that were blessed to know her.
Memorial Services will be held on July 12th at 2:00 pm at the Vedanta Society in Montecito located at 927 Ladera Ln, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.
