Lauretta L. May

Date of Death

February 27, 2021

We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear Mother, Lauretta L. May (Laurie to her friends). She passed on February 27th, in Santa Barbara, after suffering from a lengthy illness. She was a resident of Santa Barbara for 53 years, and widowed to Kenneth L. May, who passed in 1979. She is survived by her five children Larry May, Phillip May, Linda Bush, Alice Blatt, Lois Miller, 44 grandchildren/great grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren.

She made many friends, especially at St. Raphael’s Catholic Church in Santa Barbara, where she worked for many years. We especially want to thank Father Steve her friend and mentor, and the Knights of Columbus who continued to comfort and care for her after Dad passed away. We have so much respect for all of you. We thank her very good neighbors and friends for their love and kindness over the years.

We also want to thank the VNA Hospice nurses who helped care for her, as well as the Serenity House. Everyone will remember her as a special person who was very gracious, kind and always put the consideration of others before herself. We will truly miss her.
