Dorothy M Ge­orge

San Francisco Chronicle - Late Edition (Sunday) - - LIFE TRIBUTES -

It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily of Dorothy Marie Ge­orge “Dot­tie”, an­nounce her pass­ing on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, 2018 at the young age of 96. She qui­etly de­parted this life sur­rounded by those that loved her un­con­di­tion­ally. She was the daugh­ter of the late Pi­etro Trabucco and Ce­lestina San­guinetti and was born Oc­to­ber 15, 1922 in Sacra­mento, Cal­i­for­nia. She was united in holy mat­ri­mony to An­gelo Ge­orge and were hap­pily mar­ried for 54 years. This union was blessed with one child, a son Barry Ge­orge. An­gelo pre­ceded her in death in 2003. Dorothy was an ac­tive parish­ioner of St. Gabriel Church for the ma­jor­ity of her life; a mem­ber of the Ital­ian Catholic Fed­er­a­tion and ac­tively vol­un­teered with St. Ig­natius Col­lege Prepara­tory where Barry at­tended High School.

Dorothy was a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­woman who was self-taught. She touched many lives along with her late hus­band An­gelo as own­ers and op­er­a­tors of The Philoso­pher’s Club in West Por­tal, a sta­ple of the com­mu­nity. She loved her City by the Bay. As a re­sult of her gen­er­ous spirit and pleas­ant per­son­al­ity, she was loved by many.

Her life was as beau­ti­ful as the flow­ers that she loved so well, and her in­flu­ence and im­pact will for­ever re­main in the lives of all who knew her. She will for­ever be cher­ished in the lives of her son Barry and grand­chil­dren: Christin Ge­orge and Lau­ren Ge­orge. Dorothy moved from San Fran­cisco to South­ern Cal­i­for­nia to live with her grand­daugh­ter Lau­ren and soon to be son-in-law Mick Tread­way in 2016 un­til her pass­ing. They loved and cared for her daily and learned so much dur­ing their long talks and ad­ven­tures.

Dorothy will be re­mem­bered for her in­ner strength and in­de­pen­dence, de­vo­tion to fam­ily and ser­vice, love of learn­ing, and pride in her Ital­ian her­itage. She nur­tured and val­ued her re­la­tion­ships with her fam­ily mem­bers in Italy – whom gave her great joy.

She en­joyed life to its fullest – her smile and laugh al­ways in­fec­tious, her sto­ry­telling leg­endary. She was hon­est, hard­work­ing and fiercely loyal to her word. She was ex­tremely gen­er­ous and kind. She was a teacher of life with a cen­tury of wis­dom. She had a spe­cial gift of be­ing able to con­nect with peo­ple from ev­ery gen­er­a­tion and walks of life. Even in her 90’s she sur­prised many with her good health, sharp wit, be­ing up to date on cur­rent events, love of wine and food, and her stock mar­ket tips. Her im­pact on each life she touched was mag­i­cal and in­stru­men­tal and will live on for gen­er­a­tions. She will be missed ev­ery day but her un­con­di­tional love will not to be for­got­ten.

A Fu­neral Ser­vice in mem­ory of Dorothy Marie Ge­orge will be held on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7, at 11:00am, at the Holy Cross Ceme­tery Chapel, 1500 Mis­sion Rd. Colma. In lieu of flow­ers, her fam­ily re­quests memo­rial do­na­tions be made in her mem­ory to her most beloved foun­da­tion - St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hos­pi­tal (https://www. stjude.org/do­nate/do­nateto-st-jude.html).
