Laura “Lolo” Elizabeth Clowers
Laura “Lolo” Elizabeth Clowers was born January 15, 1986 and died April 10, 2014, at the young age of 28.
Laura was born and raised in Santa Barbara where she attended Roosevelt Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School. A talented musician who played piano, saxophone and clarinet, she graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 2004 and continued her education at the University of Arizona where she graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business.
She had an affinity with children, animals and old folks. Laura was multitalented and creative. She was an excellent cook and had an insightful fashion sense and was frequently sought out by her mother to be her personal shopper.
Because of her ability to naturally connect with children, it came as no surprise to any of her friends and family when she decided to take a job as a substitute teacher in Santa Maria, California, where she lived, until recently, with her Aunt and Uncle, Phyllis (Aunt Pi) & Glenn Jackson. Although her life was brief, the positive impact she had on family, friends, children, and animals will never be forgotten.
Laura is survived by her parents Beth and Pat Clowers, brother Connor, maternal grandfather Peter Acri, and paternal grandmother Barbara Clowers, as well as aunts, uncles and countless cousins.
A mass will be held for her at the Santa Barbara Mission on Thursday, May 8th at 10:00 a.m., followed by a celebration of her life at her family home located at 1928 Cleveland Ave in Santa Barbara, California.
