Carolyn Pearce Sugars died peacefully with family at her side on April 30, 2014, in Walnut Creek.

Born in Oakland in 1931 to Donald and Helen (Wetzel) Pearce, she was the second of six children. She attended grammar school in Piedmont, followed by eight years of study with The Sisters of the Holy Names, graduating from UC Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and dietetics in 1953. After completing an internship in dietetics at New York Hospital, she worked as a dietitian at UC San Francisco Hospital.

Carolyn lived in Woodland (1960-1979) and Davis (1979-2007) where she raised her six children; was active in the local Catholic churches (Holy Rosary and St. James) and engaged in social justice and the peace movements, including Short Term Emergency Aid Committee — STEAC, Citizens for InterAmerican Cooperation — CIAC, and the Davis Sanctuary Movement. She was the first recipient of the City of Davis Peace and Justice award in the 1980s.

Carolyn was married for fifteen years to Edward B. Sugars (English and Drama instructor at Woodland High School, 1960-1971) and was a stay-at-home mother until resuming her dietetics career in 1970. She worked at UC Davis in the Department of Nutrition and then the Department of Community Health, School of Medicine as a nutritionist/researcher working on many cardiovascular disease prevention studies until her early retirement in 1991.

Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents, former husband and two of her siblings, Janet Bostic and John Pearce. She is survived by her children, Stephanie of Kenwood; Karen (Leo Bonamy) of Kailua Kona, Hawaii; Dan of Folsom, Kirk of Albuquerque, N.M.; Jenifer Sugars Gorton (Rich) of Walnut Creek; and Drew (Nerissa) of Burbank. In addition, she is survived by her seven beloved grandchildren, Krista and Stephanie Sugars; Lucas and Alyssa Gorton; and Brandon, Jacob and Sydney Sugars. She is also survived by her sister, Eleanor Westbrooke of Albany; brother David Pearce of Vallejo; sister Marianne Springer of San Clemente; sister-in law Sharon Pearce of Alta Loma; and 22 nieces and nephews and their families.

A potluck and remembering of Carolyn’s life will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at International House, Davis, 10 College Park. Photos or memories of Carolyn may be sent to [email protected].
