I met Dorothy in the 1980's when I started working as a nurse in the Special Care Nursery for sick infants at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco. Dorothy was the nurse practitioner in the unit. She was great at her job and highly respected by the nurses and physicians in the Pediatric Department. Dorothy was always a voice of maturity and reason, and she and Dr. Valerie Charlton ran the unit. After she retired we developed a tradition of meeting every year for Christmas lunch in downtown San Francisco and exchanging gifts, and Dorthy's gift was always an addition to her Christmas rocking horse collection. She was a lover of golf until she was unable to continue with the physical demands of the sport, she enjoyed playing bridge with her friends, and she was a huge Giant's fan. Dorothy was a classy lady and I always admired her, and now I will miss her.

My husband and I received the gift of meeting Dorothy at the SF Giants games. While we did not know Dorothy for a lot of years we did get to know her for the past few years at the ball games in the upper level section behind home plate rooting for the Giants. We always look forward to game day but knowing we would see Dorothy was an extra bonus! She loved the game, new the game and loved listening to the announcers on KNBR during the game - all the while my husband and her would laugh and share the funny moments from our great SF Giants commentators during the game. She was well known to all in the section. She will be missed :( and there will not be a home game we attend that we will not remember our new found friend and SF giants community family member Dorothy. You are already missed Dorothy - hugs Jill and Nick Valerio

In the brief time Dorothy resided at The Carlisle we learned to appreciate her friendliness and straightforwardness. She was happy to be here and we were happy to have her as a valuable member of our community. We were devastated to lose her so suddenly and are missing her very much.

Aunt Dorothy, I am glad that we had so many enjoyable phone calls with each other, especially the day before you slipped quietly away. And, Just two days before, when I was texting you pictures from my mother's Boardman Family photo album. I am really going to miss you, and our get-togethers in San Francisco, when I came to visit. You were truly my favorite aunt. Gordon (Gordon G. Koltis, MD)
