Jeanice (Newton) Lugo (7/2/41 - 1/8/14)
Our beautiful mother Jeanice Lugo passed away peacefully on January 8, 2014 in Santa Barbara after her
battle with cancer.
She was selfless and giving, a quality we so admired in her. She LOVED life and her family with an
unshakable passion. We will miss her wit, sense of humor, sparkle in her eyes and that wonderful smile. She
will make a perfect angel!
Jeanice was born July 2, 1941 in Eureka, CA and lived most of her life in Santa Barbara, venturing to other
cities for only a little while before coming back "home" to Santa Barbara. Volunteering and helping others
in the community was another passion in her life, along with Fiesta and Christmas (her two favorite times
of the year!)
She is survived by her husband, Sebastian, who has been the apple of her eye for the last 25 years, her
three daughters Debbie Wade (Ken), Laura Haas (Geoff) and Vickie Martinez (Luis), her sisters Joan Justi,
Jolinda Pizzirani, her brother Jerry Newton and her four grandchildren Marissa, Nicholas, Corina and Karlee.
Services will be held on Friday, January 24, at 2 pm at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, 1500 Linden Avenue,
A special thank you to the Leukemia Society for their support over the years.
Arrangements entrusted to McDermott-Crockett Mortuary.
