Liv~Anna Beltran

April 1934 – April 2023

Liv~Anna Nicolaysen, a true Viking from Norway, entered the U.S. in July of 1955 with her dreams and cosmetology certification in hand. In 1956 she arrived in Santa Barbara, “a paradise”, where she raised her family (Riddle) , helped build many homes, and owned “The Silhouette”.

Liv~Anna participated in many community social activities over the years, contributing her creative talent, and her vibrant personality, and always making friends.

She was a butterfly with a light hearted attitude, who wore her colorful caftans & sparkles with style. Her love of Bingo was know by all.

She is survived by her children, Janice (Greg), Erik (Dolores), and Jon. Grandchildren Sarah & Jacqueline, Kyle and Scott.
She was blessed with the friendships of Dennis Merenbach, Moy Leuthardt, Imke Boomer, Ibrahim Khogeer, Patricia Fabing and many at Friendship Manor. Heartfelt thanks for the loving care provided by Cottage Hospital and Sarah House Hospice.

In her own words….
“This is my last journey,
Eternity lays ahead of me with much peace and calm.
Until we meet again once more,
I’ll be waiting in Valhalla above.
God Bless each and every one of you who touched my life.
I’m going home.
Don’t grieve for me, the best is yet to be.”
