Barbara Jane Davey, 79, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on April 1, 2010.
She was born in Grand Rapids, Mich. in May 1930. When she was 12-years-old she met her future husband, Nelson Davey. Barbara and Nelson enjoyed 63 loving years of marriage on the Central Coast. They raised a daughter, Brenda Steeb, and son, Greg Davey. Barbara and Nels owned and operated various businesses such as The Cambria Pines Lodge and Fernwood Resort in Big Sur, Calif. Barbara was a sharp woman with a clever sense of humor, shrewd business sense and a "green thumb.”
She is survived by her children Brenda Steeb and Greg Davey; grandchildren Todd and Chris Steeb, Chelsea and Giles Davey; and great-grandchildren Maryn, Camden and Bella Steeb.
We thank all of our friends, family and caregivers for such wonderful support.
A graveside service will be held at the Templeton District Cemetery in Templeton on Tuesday, April 6 at 1 p.m., where she will be laid to rest next to her life-long love.
Donations may be made in Barbara’s name to the Hospice Partners of the Central Coast, 277 South St., Ste. R, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.
