Staci Johnson Ingram, 46, of Ventura, California, passed away suddenly on September 22, 2020 in Palm Springs, California.

She was born in Yuba City, California to Chuck and Sharon Smith on September 20, 1974. Staci attended college at San Francisco State University and went on to earn her Masters in Communications at the University of California, Davis.

Staci was, in her younger years, a broadcaster in Yuba City and an integral part of the town’s theatre community where she won several local awards for acting and directing. She was a part of the organization Youth Focus, where she served as the California State Ambassadress in 1996, and continued to serve as a supporter of the organization.

Staci was a devoted member of the Rotary Club of Ventura and was recognized as Rotarian of the Year (2019-2020). She was the Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications & Development at Roth Staffing Companies; she was a truly beloved leader and the “voice” of her company.

Ventura Rotary’s “Perspectives on Peace” scholarship program was Staci’s brainchild, and she was a passionate advocate for art education. In 2021, the scholarship program was renamed in Staci’s honor.
