Barbara Anne Davis Wells
Barbara Anne Davis Wells passed peacefully on March 15, 2021, at the age of 89 years. She is survived by her three children, Hilary, Linda and Michael Wells, her son-in-law, K.C. Williamson and daughter-in-law Kendra Wells, and her three grand children, Michael Joseph Wells, Madison Wells and Lauren Williamson.
Barbara was the only child of Grace and Donald Davis and was raised in Oakland and Los Angeles, California. She attended UCSB for one year, then attended UCLA for the remainder of her undergraduate years. She met her husband, Harry Wells, who was a Naval Officer, in Hawaii. Soon after they married she became a teacher and taught elementary school, first in Hawaii and later in Long Beach, California, for over 40 years.
In 2013, Barbara moved from her townhome in Southern California to an independent living apartment at Vista Del Monte Retirement Community. She lived there for seven years, where she enjoyed a full and active lifestyle participating in campus activities and spending time with her neighbors, friends and family. In May of 2020, after living in Vista Del Monte’s assisted living program for a year, she moved to Oak Cottage Memory Care in Santa Barbara. Barbara was very independent, picking up skiing at age 50, and traveling to multiple countries. She enjoyed close, life-long friendships and spent lots of time with her family, including her twin daughters who lived nearby. We want to thank and are very grateful for the wonderful Vista Del Monte and Oak Cottage communities and care providers, who have been so supportive and caring of her over these many years.
