Date of Death

Carolene Davis passed away peacefully at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara on the evening of March 12th, 2016, after battling cancer for nearly two decades. She was 54.

Carolene and her twin sister, Charlene, were born on February 28, 1962, in Santa Barbara, CA, to their parents, Jon Milby and Dolores Zaris. She graduated from San Marcos High School in 1980 and married Tim Davis in September of 1985. They just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary last September. Carolene had a very special relationship with her son, Tyler, who was extremely devoted to helping and supporting her in her fight and always cooked her the most amazing organic foods. She had a passion for life and never took a day for granted. Carolene worked at First American Title for 24 years before getting into the Real Estate industry where she worked for Village Properties. She had many mentors and was truly loved by all. Carolene was a strong, courageous, kind and loving person. She remained bright and optimistic, brave and iron-willed, even throughout her final days. Everyone she encountered instantly felt her love and energy…and her smile could light up a room! She was a huge Denver Bronco fan and the last game she watched couldn’t have been better. She loved to travel and cherished her most favorite place, Greece. She will be deeply missed by all who had the great privilege of knowing her.

Carolene is survived by her husband, Tim Davis; her son, Tyler Davis; her father, Jon Milby; her twin sister, Charlene Rossoll; brother-in-law, Rex Rossoll; her sister-in-law; Nikki Van Winkle and her closest friends. Carolene lost her mother, Dolores Zaris, just 9 days before her own passing.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 8th, at 1:00 p.m. at Welch-Ryce-Haider Chapel in Goleta.

Immediately following will be a celebration of our beautiful Carolene’s life held at Endless Summer on the Waterfront Harbor. All are welcome to attend.
