Eve Debra Johnson was born on May 30, 1952, at Saint Frances Hospital in Santa Barbara. She was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident on Oct. 9, 2019.
Eve was in the class of 1971 at Santa Barbara High School. She was employed at the Santa Barbara News-Press in the 1970s, and worked in the mailroom. After she was laid off, she continued her employment at Sears Roebuck for many years.
She finished her working career as a caregiver, taking care of many of our local elderly.
Eve was preceded in death by her parents, Gerald E. Johnson and Dolores Johnson, in 1994.
Eve is survived by her brother, Craig Johnson; her sister, Janel Smit, and husband, Rene’ Smit; a niece, Renelle Gonzalez, and husband, Oscar Gonzalez; two grandnephews, Nathan and Dylan Gonzalez; a nephew, Jason Smit, and wife, Hannah Smit; and an extended family of cousins and great cousins.
Eve had a love of all animals, and a love for her Lord, and wasn’t shy on spreading the word of the Gospel.
A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019, at 1 p.m. at Oak Park.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Humane Society in Eve’s name.
