Sharon Dalton, interior designer, dies at 69

 

Sharon Dalton of Menlo Park, an interior designer for more than 30 years, died, surrounded by family, on Dec. 8 of ovarian cancer. She was 69.

Born in the East Bay, Ms. Dalton moved to Menlo Park 37 years ago and served as president of the Menlo-Atherton Newcomers Club. She was also active in the PTA when her two daughters were attending Menlo Park elementary schools and Menlo-Atherton High School.

She was a great chef and loved to entertain, say family members. She was known as the "Godmother of the neighborhood" by many and had a "CEO personality" they say. She was a member of the Peninsula Rose Society and enjoyed taking cooking classes at Draeger's. She had a special fondness for Paris and visited there more than a dozen times, most recently last year.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Dwight Chen and Dr. Teresa Nauenberg of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation for the care of their mother.

Ms. Dalton is survived by her husband, Stuart, and daughters Suzanne and Christina.

A celebration of Ms. Dalton's life will be held for family and friends on Saturday, Jan. 16. Contact the family for further details.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers that memorial gifts be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, the Cancer Research Institute, or a charity of the donor's choice.
