Daisy Stanley

Obituary Condolences

June 9, 1918 - Dec. 23, 2008 Daisy Stanley, of San Carlos, passed away at her home on December 23, 2008. Daisy was born in San Francisco on June 9, 1918 and was the daughter of Angelo and Linda Albertazzi. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph, her son, Mike and her brothers, Louis and Victor. She is survived by her son, Mark (Robin) and daughter-in-law, Donna Stanley McEvoy, as well as 9 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. Daisy knew from an early age that she was destined to work in medicine. In a 1938 San Francisco Chronicle interview, she said her goal was to help others maintain a healthy life through medicine. Affectionately known as "Dr. Daisy", she was a medical secretary for 71 years, retiring when she was 89. Whether painting dolls or creating elaborate Easter eggs, her artistic eye and attention to detail was constant. She even created custom bride dolls, whose face and gown matched the bride's. She was a Catholic, Methodist, Episcopalian, and ultimately, a Seventh Day Adventist, who loved to discuss theology and question established thinking. The family would especially like to thank Dr. Sidney Marchisin, her long-time boss and friend, for his unendingly compassionate care and friendship. At Daisy's insistence, no services will be held. Donations in Daisy's memory may be made to Amistad International, PO Box 455, Palo Alto, CA 94302 in support of their worldwide mission work, or Pathways Hospice Foundation, 585 North Mary Ave. Sunnyvale, CA 94085.
