Lucia Sutphen Barbaro Obituary
December 12, 1939 - March 13, 2016 It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Lucia S. Barbaro on March 13, 2016 with her family by her side. Lucia was born in Los Angeles and raised in Pacific Palisades before settling in Brentwood. She graduated from Marlborough School, UC Boulder and USC. Lucia was a well-respected, much-loved educator within the Los Angeles Unified School District for 37 years, having taught at Pacoima Junior High, Virgil Elementary, Paul Revere Middle School and lastly Venice High School, which she adored. Her dedication and passion towards her profession was unparalleled, as evidenced by the numerous students and their families whom she remained in contact with over the years. In addition to her teaching career, Lucia was an accomplished world traveler, restaurant aficionado, theater and opera devotee, and generous supporter of numerous causes and organizations. Her vivacious personality and positive attitude will be missed by all, but remain in our hearts forever. She is survived by her sister, two generations of nieces and nephews, and countless friends throughout the world. Per her wishes, a funeral service will not be scheduled but a celebration of life with family and friends will take place with a date and time to be announced.
