Myrdal, Robert - San Carlos  
Robert Wayne Myrdal November 23, 1929 - May 8, 2016 Robert "Bob" Wayne Myrdal passed away on May 8, 2016 in Stanford Hospital as a result of injuries he suffered as a pedestrian struck by a car on April 29th. Bob was born November 23, 1929 on the family farm near Gardar, North Dakota, to Einar and Sophie (Bergmann) Myrdal. At the age of three, the family moved to the Village of Edinburg where he graduated as Valedictorian from Edinburg High School in 1947. He graduated from North Dakota Agricultural College (now NDSU) in 1951 with a degree in Civil Engineering. During his 42-year career as a Civil and Structural Engineer, Bob worked for the California State Bridge Department; Paderewski-Dean Associates, Architects, in San Diego; and Tudor Engineering Company, Consulting Engineers in San Francisco and Seattle. His most challenging project was the design of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) System. Bob was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Structural Engineers Society of California and Tau Beta Pi Honorary Engineering Association. Bob married Susan "Sue" LaCore in Muskegon, Michigan in 1959. They lived in San Diego, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Mercer Island, Washington and moved back to the family home in San Carlos, California in 1976. Bob and Sue were members of Lutheran church congregations in each of their locations. Bob was chairman of the building committee at Clairemont Lutheran Church in San Diego, and served generously in many capacities at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Mercer Island and Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church in San Mateo. He especially enjoyed cooking for the monthly Men's Prayer Breakfast. Bob relished the outdoors with frequent family outings, and summer vacations always included a National Park. He took great pleasure in fishing for Marlin off Mexico and King Salmon and Kamloops Trout in British Columbia. He enjoyed playing basketball, baseball and golf, and skiing at Lake Tahoe and the Pacific Northwest. He was a member of The Olympic Club of San Francisco, where he appreciated many new friends later in life and volunteered for the U.S. Open Golf Championship. Active in many professional and community organizations, Bob loved spending time with family and friends. Bob's monthly golf column for the Sons in Retirement group newsletter was taglined "Keep it on the Short Grass," reflecting his keen sense of humor. His upbeat mood and positive spirit always inspired those around him. Hard-working, thoughtful and kind, a gentleman and a gentle man, Bob was a devoted and supportive husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, great uncle, neighbor, and friend. Bob's dedication to Sue is evident in the loving care he has provided her in the eight years since her stroke. His daughters are infinitely grateful for his generous love and steadfast support that has filled their lives. Bob is survived by Sue his wife of 56 years and by their two children Mary Beth (David) Shimmon, San Francisco, and Nancy (Frank) Carroll, Farmington, Connecticut; four grandchildren, Brett Carroll, Benjamin Robert Carroll, Alison Shimmon and David Shimmon, Jr.; and numerous nieces and nephews all beloved by their "Uncle Bob." He was preceded in death by his parents, Einar and Sophie Myrdal; sister, Jean Jensen; and brother, Donald B. Myrdal. A Memorial Celebration of Bob's Life will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 1:00 PM at Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church, 600 W. 42nd Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94403, with fellowship immediately following.

Oltranti, Flora - San Francisco, Ca  
Flora Oltranti December 8, 1936 - May 22, 2016 Flora Oltranti, 79, beloved mother, grandmother and friend, died peacefully on May 22, 2016 surrounded by family in San Francisco. Born on December 8th, 1936 in Lucca, Italy, to Dino and Anna DiBene, Flora immigrated with her family to San Francisco in 1949 where she attended St. Brigid's Grammar School and Star of the Sea High School. A hard and determined worker, Flora had a successful business career that culminated in the creation of her thriving real estate company that served the Cow Hollow, Marina and North Beach neighborhoods for over 40 years. Her unique and personal style made Flora a neighborhood institution. In 1958, she married Niccolo Oltranti (also from Lucca) and they built a prosperous life together eventually satisfying a life-long dream by purchasing a working vineyard in Sonoma County. Flora loved people, real estate, early morning walks around the neighborhood, flowers and plants, her view of the Golden Gate, the opera, dancing, traveling and those donuts after Sunday morning mass; she had a good eye for finding passed-over treasures at estate sales and could never pass a black jack table or slot machine without taking a shot. She was an especially good cook and enthusiastic eater, loving nothing better than picking a fresh vegetable or two and cooking and sharing it with family and friends. She was the true heart of the Oltranti family, keeping everyone connected with her feisty sense of humor, her particular sense of boundaries, her direct, no-nonsense ways of communicating and her continuing curiosity about and guidance for – solicited or not – all the people around her. Flora is survived by her sister Elena Micheli, and four children – Marie Piccetti and her husband James, Anthony Oltranti and his partner Robert Carrau, Jr., Steven Oltranti and his wife Sandra Oltranti, Paul Oltranti– and cherished grandchildren Daniela Piccetti, Lianna Piccetti, Giovanni Oltranti and Giulia Oltranti, all of San Francisco. She will be greatly missed. Services will be held in a private ceremony. Please join in the celebration of Flora's life at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club in North Beach, 1630 Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA 94133 on June 17th from 4-7 PM.
