Judy Carol Contreras, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and daughter, left us far too soon on February
15th, 2014. Born to Ray and Ordee Dally of Santa Barbara, on February 28th, 1951, Judy attended Harding
Elementary, La Cumbre Junior High and Santa Barbara High School. Judy preceded her Father in passing
and is survived by her Mother, Brother Ray Dally Jr. and various nephews and nieces.
Her generous spirit, wicked sense of humor and infectious laughter will be deeply missed by all who loved
Judy met and married the love of her life, Danny Contreras on October 27th, 1990. Together they shared a
passion for life surrounded by their loving daughters, Sonya, Rochelle and Nicole. In addition, Judy was a
doting grandmother to Jesalyn, Joshua, Ashlyn, Aiden, Samuel, Brooklyn and Ryland. They will always
remember their Grandma Judy fondly-and sweetly- due to her kitchen chocolate supply, which always
resembled the day after Halloween.
Judy and Danny spent their honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, returning every year to celebrate their
anniversary with an ever-growing circle of friends. Apart from being a loving and committed couple, they
were also the best of friends, and could often be seen together in their season seats behind the bench at
the UCSB basketball games.
Judy spent her working years at KEYT, and at various plumbing companies in Santa Barbara, the last 20
years at Smardan Hatcher Co.
Danny has lost his soul mate, but will be forever grateful for the years of laughter and wonderful life they
Services will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows on Tuesday, February 25th at 10am. Donations in Judy's name
can be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
