Nancy Lynn Roman
Nancy Lynn Roman passed away on June 30, 2021, while on a backpacking trip in the Peruvian Andes. She will be missed.
Nancy was a loving wife and mother of 4 children. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Nancy loved to hike the backcountry trails and spent most weekends taking local day hikes with friends and local hiking groups. She also went on longer trips such as the John Muir Trail and all the very remote places found in the Dick Smith and San Rafael Wilderness areas such as Hurricane Deck.
Nancy also loved music and the arts, teaching recorder to elementary students at Goleta elementary schools for close to 15 years. She painted, played the flute, harp, and tended a beautiful home garden.
Many also knew Nancy from her Yoga and personal fitness classes taught in many Goleta and Santa Barbara locations such as Maravilla, Stow Park, and the YMCA.
Nancy attended Peabody and Roosevelt elementary schools, Santa Barbara Junior High, Santa Barbara High School (74), and Santa Barbara City College where she learned the art of dental assisting and then went back and took every single Spanish class they had to offer. She loved the Spanish language.
Nancy is survived by husband David and children Rebecca, Daniel, Christopher, and Michael.
