Betty Ann Oakes, born August 8, 1928, passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 17. Betty was born in Maumee, Ohio to Linus H. & Inez Weis, and spent her early years living in the northern Ohio area. She moved to Santa Barbara in 1962 and raised her young family, working in the hospitality industry and professional photography painting. In 1996, she became a resident at Valle Verde Retirement Community after the passing of her husband, George F. Oakes.

Oakes and daughter Deborah Culpepper. She is survived by sister Ann Krischack of Toledo, Ohio, daughter Lyn Anderson & son-in-law David Anderson of Ketchum, ID, son Dennis J.
