KRZYCZKOWSKA, Maria Maria Krzyczkowska passed away peacefully in Santa Barbara on February 16 after several years of declining health. Born Maria Aniela Danuta Krukowska, she was raised by her mother and grandmother, having lost her father at a young age. In the face of danger, she completed high school despite schools being banned by the Germans during their World War II occupation of Poland. After high school, she joined the Polish Underground Army, serving in the medical corps in the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. She became a POW in Germany until she was liberated by American troops at the end of the War. After the War, she briefly lived and studied in Italy before settling in London where she met her husband Roman Krzyczkowski and many of her closest friends with whom she would remain in touch for the rest of her life. She and her husband came to the United States in 1957 where they briefly lived in Baltimore, MD, and then moved to Santa Barbara in 1959. While her two daughters were young she was active in their school activities, volunteering in many different capacities. During the Vietnam War, she was a proud volunteer for the American Red Cross. She also worked as a bookkeeper for her husband's company and later for the Girl Scouts. After the death of her husband in 1975 she joined the St. Anthony's Community, where she found solace and support. She also enjoyed gardening, and was a member of the Santa Barbara Garden Club. She was passionate about the arts, and she volunteered for many years for the Santa Barbara Art Museum as a docent, where she particularly enjoyed sharing her love of art with school children. She also enjoyed traveling, often including museums in her itinerary. After the end of the Cold War, she was able to return to Poland for a visit, reuniting with some of her elementary school friends. She is preceded in death by her husband and by her daughter Anna K. Mercer, who died in 2008. She is survived by her other daughter and four grandchildren. Friends and family are invited to attend an inurnment ceremony at the Santa Barbara Cemetery on Friday, March 20, 2015, at 2PM.

o_OHagan030515 O'HAGAN, Gene 1938-2015 •Gene, or Genoh as many knew him, may be gone and many may tell you he is in a better place, but the rest of us know otherwise - he’s been seen riding his horse in the S.Y. Valley, sailing Jumping Jack Flash to a win, driving Old San Marcos Road in his sports car, skeet shooting at the gun club, concocting up a favorite dish in the kitchen or planting those 50 avocado trees in the west orchard. Gene has made many friends over the years, beginning with his 42 year real-estate career, which spawned his Romance Tour of his beloved Santa Barbara. One thing we can all agree on is Gene loved people, booze, cars, a good time and especially a great joke. Gene is interred in the Courtyard at the S.B. Cemetery where in his own words: "At Last I Have a View and Not Just a Point of View." Gene took his last sip of scotch as his heart gave out and passed into his next adventure on February 19, 2015 at home with his wife and friends by his side. He is survived by his wife, Mary Louise Isaia O’Hagan, of 44 years and a favorite aunt, Betty Taylor and cousins Kim & Cliff Taylor. In his honor, please remember the Visiting Nurses, 509 E. Montecito St. #200, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. A celebration of his life will take place on March 7th at El Paseo Restaurant from 12pm - 3pm.
