Julie Collette (Anderson) Lyon
On the morning of December 6, as the Thomas fire was just beginning, Julie Lyon departed this life. Born in Los Angeles to adventurous ocean loving parents Julie came to Santa Barbara in 1983. Julie was a lover of life and a continual seeker of life’s most joyful and exciting moments. Her sons, Spencer and Connor were her crowning glory and she will always be remembered by her family as an eternally loving and dedicated mother She found peace while living bravely with cancer for almost ten years and could be found walking with her beloved canine friends at Hendry’s and Miramar beach every day, collecting sea glass and breathing the salt air that was in her blood. We will miss our sweet Julie dearly.
A celebration of Julie’s life will be held at Elings Park in Singleton Grove on April 25 at 12:00 noon. A potluck picnic will follow the service.
Any donations in Julie’s memory should be made to Hospice of Santa Barbara.
