Pagliotti, Lila Jane  
Lila Pagliotti passed away June 15, 2016, at the age of 99.  She was the beloved mother of Richard Pagliotti who survives her, along with a nephew, two nieces, 4 great nieces and beyond. She is preceded in death by her husband Dee Pagliotti and also her younger son, John. Lila Jane Redfern was born January 5, 1917 in Los Angeles, California. She grew up on the west side of that city. She attended John Burroughs Junior High School. Lila graduated from Beverly Hills High School in 1935 (four years before Betty White). From her vantage point in time, Lila was able to watch the construction of the iconic May Company building on Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax. After graduation, Lila took a job at Barker Brothers in downtown Los Angeles. Lila met her future husband, Dee Pagliotti, on a blind date in Bakersfield. After a reasonable passing of time, Lila would move to Santa Barbara and become a member of that Goleta pioneer family. Dee and Lila were married on a "Friday the 13th" in a Catholic Church in Las Vegas, Nevada. The marriage lasted just short of 59 years. New in town, Lila worked at such familiar places as Lerner's and Lou Rose. Early on, Lila became very active in the local community.  Lila was the first president of the Goleta Women's Service Club for which she received mention in Walker Tompkins' book "Goleta, the Good Land." Lila was a two-time Goleta Union School PTA President. She was a Cottage Hospital "Pink Lady." She was a Cub Scout den mother and also a 4-H crafts leader. Lila may best be remembered for the years she worked at Parry's Furniture Store where she was in sales as well as interior decorating during Goleta Valley's golden age of model homes. After Parry's closed, Lila went to work at I. Magnin and Co. Upon retirement, Lila became a member of the Santa Barbara Assistance League. She was also a County Hospital gift shop volunteer. During their leisure time, the Pagliottis loved to travel, mostly by RV, but there were also a couple of cruises in there. In their suburban, Dee and Lila pulled their travel trailer from coast to coast, and border to border, and beyond. Favorite destinations included  New Orleans and Alaska. There was also an especially dear aunt and uncle who had a large sheep ranch outside of Cody Wyoming. All of this, and Lila still found time to play tennis until she was 80 years old. In lieu of flowers, friends may donate to anything they wish.  Sincere thanks to Dr. Gilbert, Dr. Liang, DASH, Hospice and particularly Maravilla.  The family would like to greatfully acknowledge Mark, Matt, Amy, and Richard Hunt, with very special thanks to Janis and Kenny. No services are planned.
