Saturday: Memorial service for Barbara Douglass of Atherton


A memorial Mass for Barbara Holt Douglass of Atherton, who died on Aug. 13 at the age of 93, is set for 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Church of the Nativity in Menlo Park.

Barbara and her husband of 72 years, Earl "Duke" Douglass, moved to Atherton 67 years ago, and she was active in a number of community organizations, including the Atherton Garden Club and the Menlo Park Historical Association. The couple had five children, all of whom survive their mother.

The Almanac will publish a full obituary in a future issue.

Nativity church is at 210 Oak Grove Ave.
