BURK, Robert Lewis
Robert Burk, son of Dr EE and Albra Burk, was the last Los Angeles baby born in 1919, delivered by a doctor in a tuxedo. Raised in a house full of colorful relatives during the Depression, he graduated from LA High and began college at UCLA. When the war started, he joined the Army Air Force and served as a flight officer until he was shot down and held as a POW for 434 days in northern Germany. Returning to California, he attended UC Berkeley, from which he graduated in Chemical Engineering in 1948.
Just a year before, he had married his childhood friend and sweetheart, Patricia Hartley Burk; together they had three children whom they adored. He started his career with National Starch and then joined A&W where he later became an Executive Vice President, a position that involved substantial domestic travel. Prior to retirement, he worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Los Angeles. In addition to his career, he pursued life-long interests in inventing and cookery - interests which spurred entrepreneurial enterprises in food brokerage, patents for food preparation technology, and, in a more personal realm, an enviable reputation as an exceptionally warm host. In 1965, he also began to travel Internationally, an undertaking which added scores of new friends around the world.
Since his retirement in 1981, when he and Pat moved to Santa Barbara Bob, began to contribute substantially to his new community, through volunteering and support for a wide variety of humanitarian, educational, and cultural undertakings. Activities ranged from tutoring struggling students to delivering Meals on Wheels, Recording for the Blind and being an elder at St Andrews Presbyterian Church. As a member and past President of Santa Barbara Rotary North, he did not confine his involvement to financial support alone. In particular, as a survivor of harsh circumstances himself, he sought out ways to support those in transition, isolation, or disadvantage. As a consequence, many individuals, from all classes, races, generations and disabilities have been touched by his generosity and gentle, easy presence.
Bob will be deeply missed by all who know him, from shopkeepers to business colleagues, neighbors to life-long friends. He is survived by his loving family, so grateful for so many good memories over his 79-plus years: Patricia, with whom he celebrated his 52nd anniversary earlier this year, son Elliott and Kay, daughter Darci and Ruben, and daughter Adrienne and son-in-law Tom.

DORRANCE, Jeanne Gates
an adventurous and generous spirit, passed away peaceably on June 1, 1999 after a noble and uncomplaining struggle for many months with the effects of pneumonia and grand palsy. Born May 12, 1914 in Verdi, Nevada, she never lost the Western spirit and sense of boundless possibilities that she associated with the Blue sky and mountain vistas of her birthplace. As an active member of what is currently called the 'greatest generation', she repeatedly turned adversity into opportunity. During the Depression, she had to leave the University of Nevada after two years, but seized an opportunity to move East to attend Katherine Gibbs secretarial school in Providence, Rhode Island. After graduation, she married Herbert Larned Dorrance Jr , presently a resident of Tallahassee, Florida. Her years as homemaker and mother included the challenges of "single parenting~ during World War II while her husband was overseas and the building of suburban family life in Cohasset, Massachusetts after the war. Her children remember her delicious cooking, gardening, home-sewed school dresses, magical Christmas celebrations, dynamic brownie scout leadership and exciting excursions to Boston to see Gilbert and Sullivan operettas or to cheer on the Boston Braves and Red Sox. Most of all they remember her great love of reading and of music. Her quest for learning about the history and cultures of the world still guides their lives today.
Deeply imbued with American ideals of freedom and democracy and moved by a keen hope for social justice she moved to Washington, D C in 1961 when direct family duties were completed. She plunged into a variety of jobs including staff for a U S Congressman and work at the White House. She participated intensely in several Presidential campaigns. But Watergate led her to seek more fulfilling duties as a resident property manager in Washington D C and San Francisco, CA. Never just a manager, she found ways to stir up community spirit with special events such as Christmas choral singing and Sunday brunches. She was beloved by her staff for the deep tolerance and respect for human dignity and cultural diversity that she exemplified long before it was something that had to be talked about. Late in her work life, she had the opportunity to travel with great enthusiasm to the British Isles and to Sweden where she met many relatives of her Mother who had immigrated to America in 1905.
Since 1981, Jeanne Dorrance has been a resident of Santa Barbara taking part in many Adult Education classes, volunteering for several civic activities and devoting herself to the study of the moral and political thought of Mahatma Gandhi. She is survived by her three children David of Santa Rosa, owner of DERAIL Books, Carolyn, a resident of Santa Barbara and Professor at Oxnard College and Susan Nightingale of Lawrence, KS, Chief Librarian and Media Specialist for Santa Fe Trail Middle School. Other surviving family members include her two sisters, Averil Frye of Napa, CA and Mary Brooks of Hawthorne, NV and her two grandchildren, Christopher and Rebecca Bridson of Lawrence, Kansas. Graveside services were held June 4, 1999 at Santa Rosa Memorial Park in Santa Rosa, CA. Nearby are interred her parents Thad Gates and Signa Erickson and her bother George Gates. Donations in her memory may be made to the Santa Barbara Public Library, P O Box 1019, Santa Barbara, CA 93102 or the National Parks and Conservation Association, 1776 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20077
