Staff Report

Wednesday, Aug. 30, was a very special day for the Davey family as Violet Davey, who has been under lockdown at Atterdag Retirement Home in Solvang for the past four months due to COVID-19, turned 100 years old.

Violet Davey, whose husband Warren passed away in 2017 at the age of 98, has been a resident of Santa Ynez Valley for 55 years and seen many changes to the region. The Daveys went though numerous adventures and challenges in their 72-year marriage,  raising three kids in a family that also produced seven grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. 

The Aug. 30 celebration was definitely challenging with social distancing, but all went well and the day was very special for Davey.
