It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carol Lee Davis, a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother on November 30th. A long-time resident of Santa Barbara, she worked for the District Attorney’s Office in Santa Barbara as well as the Public Defender’s Office and finally at UCSB in the Ombuds Office. Her life was one of service and giving of herself both to the community and to her family and friends. She was truly an angel among us.

Her name was Carol, but her family affectionately called her Grandma CooCoo. Grandma CooCoo was a role model for her children and grandchildren. Her home was filled with cuckoo clocks and the sound of laughter from her silly dances, pool parties, and hosting the family for holidays. She brought the family together by passing on her favorite recipes and dressing us to the nines in matching outfits. She was a loving grandma and the sweetest lady in the world.

She will be missed by her sons, Carl Jr. and Bob and his wife, Valerie, as well as her grandchildren Rachele, Breanne, Shane, Cassandra and Samantha and great-grandchildren Gage, Marissa, Kaleb, and Elayna.

Following a private graveside service there will be a celebration of her life at Goleta Beach on December 16th at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Society.
