Our beloved, free-spirited Dianne Stacy passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday April 21, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Her wonderfully spunky and joyful presence was cherished by so many and will certainly be missed.
Dianne was born in Santa Maria, California on December 3, 1962. She lived her early years in Northern California (rural Trinity County), Alaska, and Washington. She spent most of her adult life in Santa Barbara working as a professional hair stylist. She is survived by her family and many friends.
Known for her quick wit, kind and compassionate spirit, Dianne was a positive, fun-loving individual who lived life to the fullest. She loved to travel, especially near oceans where she could pursue another of her passions, scuba diving. She also loved live music and dance. Dianne was a true animal lover and often adopted stray dogs and cats until she could find them a home.
At the age of 39 Dianne suffered a spinal injury. With incredible drive and courage she continued living a full and independent life working, camping, and traveling. She was an inspiration to everyone who met her.
On Saturday, May 18th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm, we will gather to celebrate her life at the Pilgrim Terrace Clubhouse at 649 Pilgrim Terrace Dr (where she lived). Please come and share your memories of Dianne. If you would like, please make donations to your favorite non-profit serving our ocean or furry friends. Giving was an integral part of Dianne’s life.
