Betty Ann Hogan Brown
Betty Brown passed away peacefully Tuesday March 8 here in Santa Barbara. Betty grew up in Santa Monica, California on Bundy Drive with her brother Jimmy and sisters Pat and Eva Hogan. A stewardess for United Airlines, Betty enjoyed her early flying career. Betty called Santa Barbara home in 1955 when she married her husband James Brown and together they raised their family of four children (James, Pat, Kathy and Susan) on the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch originated and owned by Jim’s mother Florence Brown. Dedicated to a private education for their four children, Betty took a position at UCSB as work-study coordinator during the 70’s and 80’s while their children attended Christian School of Santa Barbara and Bishop Garcia Diego High School. Betty loved the YMCA, the ocean and very much enjoyed all of her grandchildren-Kesley, Beau, Nikki, Sammy, Michael Beau and Zion Bond. Betty’s family is so very grateful for the genuine loving care and healthy meals in a home style setting she received from Dana and his very hardworking, dedicated staff at the Mission Villa Home here in Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers please donate in Betty’s memory to the Santa Barbara YMCA or Mission Villa at 321 West Mission Street, Santa Barbara.
