Mom, Grandma, Aunt Sally Roseann Boettner breathed in her last earthly air on Friday, August 28. It was that twinkling of an eye, those blessed enough to be there - witnessed her entry to her new Heavenly home. So many gifts she gave us all throughout the seasons of her life. It was then that the memories of her life and indomitable spirit bloomed in the hearts and minds of her earth bound kids, grandkids, family and friends. Roseann Ingram was born on November 19, 1928 in Port Washington, Long Island, New York. During the Depression, when still a young child, she, her brothers, Bill and John (Jack), along with their mother Mary and father William, headed west to Santa Barbara with their neighbors the Renga's. Roseann's Irish grandmother was already in Santa Barbara stirring chicken soup for the Fleischman family as their cook. Roseann grew up on Castillo Street. Her dad ran Ingram's Bear Wheel Alignment Garage on lower Chapala. She and her brothers attended Dolores School and what was then called "Catholic High." Roseann met and courted John Boettner. Friday date nights always started with the Rosary at Our Lady of Sorrows Church and it was there that they were married in 1950. John and Roseann were faithful members of Father Virgil Cordano's monthly church group. Roseann loved to raise collie dogs, and the young family always had their own "Lassie." The family went to school at Harding, and Roseann would have them shop for their groceries at Mousers, Ken's, Franco's and Jordano's neighborhood markets. In 1962 they moved to the Northside of Santa Barbara. Roseann was a highly sought after room mother at her children's schools. On Saturdays, she would take the kids downtown for her weekly shopping spree. Typical stops would be at the St. Francis Shoppe, Bank's Stationery, Osborne's Books, Montgomery Ward's, SH Kress, Bennett's Music, Ott's, Santa Barbara Pets, and ? if the books were full ? the Blue Chip Stamp Store. Roseann always took the kids for a shrimp cocktail or mashed potatoes and gravy and lemon merengue pie at the Copper Coffee Pot or a hot fudge sundae and french fries at Coburn's. She bought the kid's shoes and had their feet ?x-rayed' at Ralph Runkle Shoes, shopped for new school clothes at The Childrens' Shop and P.E. outfits at All American Sporting Goods. The family celebrated First Communions at Mom's Italian Villa, had Sunday pancakes at Uncle John's, served Mrs. Furay's enchiladas at Fiesta, and squirted mustard and ketchup on family burgers at The Twin Burger. Roseann could frequently be found doing laundry for her tribe each evening following their day's adventures at Camp Lorr. When budget allowed, she and John would splurge for a dinner date at The Green Gables Restaurant. After the family was in bed, Roseann worked late into the night with her cousin, Geraldine "G" Montenegro, sewing draperies for the Santa Barbara Remnant Store. Over the hum of the sewing machines, you would have heard Robert Goulet, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Jimmie Rodgers, and Nat King Cole. Later, Roseann could be found working at McDonald's, and later dedicatedly riding the bus to her job at the Santa Barbara Children's Centers. Roseann was a loyal Dodgers' fan proudly wearing her light-up Fernando Valenzuela pin and loved going to and following the Lakers. She was selected ?Cook of the Week' by the Santa Barbara News-Press for her famous Super Bowl feeds, and when not at work or in the kitchen her knitting needles turned out many a sweater and scores of argyle socks. Many of those creations will be on display at her Friday memorial. Roseann instilled a wonderful love of Broadway musicals and traditional Christmas music to her family. Life was busy for her big family - they could still be found at the Boettner home for a home cooked meal on Sundays throughout the years. Roseann and John took their children and grandchildren on a number of memorable vacations. After their retirement, they were fortunate to travel to Ireland a number of times to find her roots. Roseann, "Mom," "Grandma," "Sally," held on to life as long as her tired heart could. We are grateful for the selfless care during her final days by Dr. John Vallee and his staff at Sansum Clinic, Teresa and the wonderful team at Villa Riviera and Nona, Anita, Estella and all of the angels at Danelle's Assisted Living. Her lessons and her spirit whisper in the winds, on the street corners, and in so many sights, sounds, and smells of Santa Barbara. She lives on in the forever grateful lives of her children: MaryAnn (Mike), John (Lynn), June (Richard), Marsha (Larry), Dan (Sue) and Jay (Susie). Grandchildren: Melinda (Sam), Marilyn, Jacob and Isaac, Dorian, Katherine (Hani), Sylvia (Josh), Michael (Margaret), Elizabeth (John), Eli and Madison. Great-grandchildren: Lucas, Greyson, Rowan, Wesson, Sullivan, Jimmy. Farley, Kyle and Ryder. And all her nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. The Rosary will be on Thursday, Sept 3rd at 3:00 p.m. A funeral service will be on Friday, Sept 4th at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at the Chapel of Welch-Ryce-Haider Mortuary at 15 East Sola Street, Santa Barbara. Burial at Calvary Cemetery, 199 N. Hope Avenue, immediately following. Come celebrate her life, share stories of her legacy, and join us at ?The Parting Glass' celebration on Friday, Sept 4th at 4:00 p.m. at Mulligan's Restaurant, at the Santa Barbara Golf Club, 3500 McCaw Avenue. Please come and share your story from a season of her life. It is with those remembrances we can truly experience ?No Never Could I Leave You At All.' In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Roseann's name at the Scholarship Foundation Santa Barbara.

Bob Scott passed away Aug. 10, 2015 at age 93. Although his body just wore out, his mind stayed as sharp as ever until the very end, and his spirit will live forever. He squeezed every last drop out of this life that he could. An avid tennis player until only a few years ago, he simply lost a long tie breaker in the fifth set. Bob came to Santa Barbara with his family in 1971 to operate KDB Radio. Prior to that, he was in broadcasting for 20+ years in Los Angeles and the Southeast. He is best known as the architect of the musical programming on KDB, formerly Santa Barbara's local classical music station. Through KDB Bob Scott provided listening enjoyment to Santa Barbara and Ventura County residents, plus exposure for local businesses, non-profits, and the arts and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for a variety of charities by means of events such as the Messiah Sing Along, Sweethearts Grand Ball, and Big Band Blockbuster Ball. A bomber pilot in WWII, Bob's service was acknowledged generously by the community. Bob's family enjoyed his love and support every day of his life, and he enjoyed theirs. However, he greatly missed Agnes, his wife of 49 years, who passed away in 1996. She was the epitome of kindness. Bob and Agnes had many friends, and all of them say they are better for having known them. Cordial and gentlemanly to all, Bob truly was the man he appeared to be. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, three granddaughters, a grand son-in-law, and a great grandson. Bob Scott had a wonderful life. To tell the full story would fill this entire page and then some. A memorial will be held on Dec. 8, 5-6pm, at First Presbyterian Church, just prior to the 35th annual Messiah Sing Along. Contributions in Bob's memory can be made to your favorite local charity, or more specifically, to any of those that Bob's events benefited in past years: Unity Shoppe, the Food Bank, Transition House, Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, Hospice, CALM, and Direct Relief International.

1971 - 2015 A young and caring man is now in heaven. Ismael "EZ" Gil passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack while driving his father on Highway 101 to a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, August 26, 2015. Ismael was born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, on June 30, 1971, to Juanita Martin del Campo and Daniel Gil. For all of us who were blessed to have known him, EZ was an unconditional, magnetic human being to all of his family and friends. He was reserved yet joyful, passionate about his Volkswagen Beetle. He came to the United States as a 19-year-old youngster, full of energy and ready to go to work and help the family. He considered Santa Barbara to be his permanent home from the day he arrived and started working at Char West, flipping burgers. He later worked at Circuit City for many years as the go-to person for any appliance delivery and installation. He found his calling back in the restaurant industry and, for the last 12 years, he had been working at UC Santa Barbara as the assistant production manager. Ismael loved life and enjoyed restoring vintage cars and watching Western and sci-fi movies. One of his favorite movies was Braveheart. He also enjoyed outdoor activities, as well as working in the garden and cooking. He also loved sports, especially the Chicago Bulls. He was open minded and viewed life as a brief journey in this world to be enjoyed and to accept the immortality. He could be seen at concerts ranging from Mariachi to rock. He had many acquaintances, a friendly and easy-going personality and was a good listener ? always willing to give sound advice and put others before himself. EZ was also a magnet to all the nieces and nephews who loved him because he pampered them and made them laugh. "El güerito," as he was called by his family, will be joining his beloved and older brother, Poncho, who preceded him in death in 1988. He leaves behind his sisters, Maricruz, Irma, Gloria and Veronica, and brothers Mario, Cesar and Daniel, plus numerous nieces and nephews, brothers- and sisters-in-law, cousins, uncles and his closest friends. The Rosary will be at 7:30 p.m. Monday, August 31, 2015, at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, 21 E. Sola St. in Santa Barbara. The funeral mass is at 10 a.m. Tuesday, September 1, 2015, also at Our Lady of Sorrows. In Ismael's honor, we please ask you to wear white.

Was born and raised in the small town of Voslau which is just outside Vienna, Austria in 1922. Her education included time spent in a Castle (Schloss Cumberland) where she was attended school with a princess, a convent run by French nuns and at the age of 16 she was a foreign exchange student and spent a year in Torrington, Connecticut where she learned English. She was also a member of a touring Ballet Troupe in Vienna, Austria. She lived through WWII in Austria with dramatic stories to tell ... and after the War ended, her ability to speak English allowed her to work for the U.S. Army HQ where she met an American officer who became her husband. Shortly thereafter, they returned to the United States where she raised two children and lived the life of an army wife with changing homes in New York, San Francisco, Germany, San Antonio, Texas before finally settling in beautiful Santa Barbara in 1963. She began working for Cottage Hospital in the Personnel Office for many years and then later transitioned to the Patient's Library where she found happiness in selecting the right reading material for patients. This work career lasted approximately 30 years. Lisas was a deacon at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and enjoyed a long membership of over 40 years. She truly enjoyed helping others and did so frequently with an attitude of kindness and compassion. Following her retirement, she returned to her love of dance and performed liturgical and lyrical interpretive dances for local churches and convalescent hospitals for many years - one of her favorite expressions being "Once a Dancer, Always a Dancer!" She "danced to the glory of God" and inspired many along the way with her graceful presence. She will be dearly missed by her family including her son, Charles, daughter, Lindy and her beloved sister Dr. Maria Barrows. She was blessed in her final days to retreat to the peace and comfort of Hospice Care at Serenity House where she passed away on August 10th, 2015. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Serenity House.
