Obituary for Dorothy " Dori" E. Carsentsen

D. E. Dori Carstensen
May 31, 1939- November 22, 2018
Dori, my sweet wife, at 17 in 1956, she was my 1st girlfriend. It was an exciting time for dating and planning our future. We married in 1960. She learned to cook, and the Little Theater beckoned her to play The Mischievous Swede in the Marriage-Go-Round. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s she became a highly regarded Private Secretary, fastest short- hand in the west. In the 70’s, Dori became a Mother and learned to sew. She specialized in skirts and dresses. Dori taught our daughter Sally to read at an early age. Willy McCovey, from the Giants, presented Sally with a large trophy as winner of the Bay Area M.S. Read-a-thon for her school. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s she was with one large company and transitioned from the Banker’s Secretary to a Teller. Dori was the Teller everyone wished they could do business with. She was often sent to other branches to problem solve with the Teller’s operations. During the 90’s we did a lot of "RV and Boat camping" and exploring the west. During the next decade, after selling the boats and upgrading the RV to a bigger model, Dori quickly made a list of new places to explore, as well as some places to have a return visit to. Dori was always the supportive, happy wife. I never knew I needed her as much as I do now.

We met in 1956 when you were only 17.
You were so beautiful, still peaches and cream.
You were all mine for only 62 years, and until we meet again Sweetie, I’ll go on shedding tears.
Each time I see stars shining above, I’ll be thanking God, you had given me your love.
The luckiest husband, Hank
