Catherine Bowes Babine
updated: Aug 12, 2014, 1:49 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

Catherine was born to Ada and Walter Babine in Tucson, AZ, in 1949.

In 1959 the family moved to Santa Barbara, and Catherine called it home for the rest of her life. At Santa Barbara High School (Class of 1967) her life revolved around theater; she worked crew for many of Jack Nakano's productions, and continued with Youth Theater after high school. She went to UCSB, studied with William Dole, and graduated with a BA in fine art. She spent time in Europe, and on returning she was employed by Delco as a technical writer. She worked with many fine people and made lasting friendships there. She worked for Wavefront Technology in its early years, Brooks Institute, and finally at Santa Barbara City College in the IT department.

Her interests were expansive- she enjoyed sailing, tennis, yoga, chinese medicine, gardening, and traveling-just to name a few- and her impressive research skills were appreciated by everyone she met. Her sparkling eyes and genuine smile will be deeply missed by her wide circle of friends and family.

Catherine passed away peacefully at Serenity House. She is survived by her mother, Ada Babine, brothers Joe and David Babine, sisters Anna Hays and Sarah Babine, and nieces Lily Hays and Alana Bailey.
