Janalee Rae Purling

Our precious Janie went to heaven on September 2, 2013 and her soul was granted eternal life. After fighting cancer for eleven months her body could take no more. She is survived by her loving husband, Mike, her son and daughter, Dave and Terri, five grandchildren and a great-grandson. Janie was born in Santa Barbara on November 27, 1940 and attended local schools. She met her husband, Mike, at Santa Barbara City College in 1959 and they were married in 1961. She was a realtor for over 20 years and also worked for Family Service Agency in Santa Barbara. Our thanks go out to Serenity House and Hospice of Santa Barbara for their wonderful care. Her wishes were to have no funeral services. She wanted to have a celebration of her life with friends and family. This has been planned for Sunday afternoon, September 15th between 3:00 and 6:00 at the Cathedral Oaks Village Clubhouse located at 651 Avenida Pequena.
