Resident Spotlight- Dorothy Benson

Meet Carlton Senior Living's resident spotlight, Dorothy Benson- Dorothy was born in Philadelphia on April 24, 1927, to Peter and Mary Rusyn. Dorothy is an only child, but both her parents came from large families; her mother and father each had seven siblings. When he was young, her father received a scholarship to become a Greek Orthodox Catholic priest. This allowed him to go to school and get an education. Dorothy took after her father, as she also loves school and learning new things. Dorothy and her father discussed books and music. He always taught her through positive reinforcement, which she still believes in. At a young age he would bring her to big church events where she got to meet church leaders. She took pride in always knowing her prayers. After high school, Dorothy and her best friend, Carol Stein, made plans to move away from home. As a kid she always wanted to be a scientist and one day go to the moon. Even though she never went to the moon, she did become a scientist. Her and Carol decided to take (and pass!) a four-hour Stanford-Binet IQ test which got them both scholarships. They went to Temple University, in Philadelphia. Dorothy says college was like heaven to her. She got to study science and was given her own microscope. Dorothy says that even though she is older, she is still the smartest person in her family. Dorothy was married twice. Her first husband, Bill, worked for the U.S. government. He worked on top secret jobs that Dorothy still does not know about. Together they had three children: Rosemary, who just retired from a financial analyst position, Bill, who is a doctor with Sutter, and Ned, who works for the EPA overseeing a territory from Guam to California. Dorothy has eight grandchildren. Dorothy’s second husband, Don, was a mathematician. Dorothy describes him as “brilliant.” Don passed away in May. They were married for 49 years. Early in their relationship, Dorothy decided to prove herself to Don by going on a backpacking trip in the mountains with him. They really roughed it and slept on the ground with the snakes and bugs. Backpacking, camping, and hiking became a pastime for the two during their marriage. Occasionally, when Dorothy and Don saved up enough money, they would ditch the mountains for a cruise.  This was their way of splurging and treating themselves. Dorothy still loves walking and relishes many fond memories of hiking and camping with Don. One of her favorite life experiences was hiking Mount Denali in Alaska. She and Don camped on the shore of Wonder Lake, at Denali’s base, in a two-person pup tent. The tent was tiny; you had to get very close to the person you shared the tent with. She has vivid memories of needing to tilt her head all the way back to see the whole mountain, which was huge and always covered in snow. When she was still with Bill, Dorothy served in U.S. Navy as a Cadet Nurse for about five years. She later taught English at community colleges. She taught remedial courses and helped students with writing and composition. Dorothy thinks a teacher should be a person who wants to help young people get ahead and she believes she was able to help the most in the community college system. She really respected that most of her students were working hard to pay for school on their own.  Dorothy still loves school. She and Don attended classes together even after he was diagnosed with dementia. She continues to attend class twice a week. She likes being able to talk to people who have a similar interest in learning new things. Dorothy also enjoys art and volunteered as a tour guide at the Legion of Honor and the De Young Museum in San Francisco. She creates her own art with various metals and woods. This type of art is called Objet Trouvé (found object) or, as she jokingly calls it, “junk.” She believes you can make art out of anything. Dorothy used to collect old pieces of cars and turn them into art. Dorothy believes in living optimistically and using your brain and intellect to stay happy. She champions the working mother. For many years she was a single mother and had to really work hard to support her family. She would like to be remembered as someone who loves to learn and help people. Dorothy wants people to know that life is good, but you must do a little to make it good. Here at Carlton, Dorothy enjoys Family Feud and word games. She likes classical music, Paul Simon, The Beach Boys, and music from the sixties. She is not a big movie watcher but does enjoy a good documentary. At Carlton she found her new favorite dessert, espresso chip ice cream. She loves all food, and even though she can’t eat gluten she appreciates that she is able to have a full diet here. Given that Dorothy spent so much time in the woods it’s no surprise her favorite scent is the smell of the redwoods and forest. Dorothy describes herself as nutty and chatty. She most admires her father, as he was a marvelous dad who prepared her to be ready for any situation. Dorothy says she really likes it at Carlton, and that she does not like to complain. However, she finds that “you have to complain a little to fit in,” so she complains about the broccoli. Her favorite thing about life at Carlton is the ability to come downstairs and have a cup of coffee and good conversation. View additional Resident Spotlight articles.

Resident Spotlight- Will Shotwell

Meet Carlton Senior Living Spotlight resident, Will Shotwell! Will was born in Bloomington, Indiana. As he grew up he was always on the move. His dad was a trouble shooting manager for the Jewel Tea Company and was constantly being transferred. Altogether, Will ended up going to thirteen different schools all over the Midwest States before he even entered into High School! His dad was also a teacher, so Will was taught how to read at the young age of three. Will can recall that there was always a volume encyclopedia and dictionary at home to study and when he wasn't busy studying one of those he was reading the newspaper to further his knowledge. In fact, when he arrived to a new school he had to take a placement exam and always scored 97% or above. It would come as no surprise that Will went on to graduate from Jr. High at the age of 13, from High School at the age of 16 and from College at the age of 20! Throughout High School and College will appeared in multiple plays and remained active in various sports such as baseball, basketball, tennis and ping-pong. He went on to attend the seminary Southern Baptist in Louisville, Kentucky. His first job was a loader for a food company. He learned to balance a 100 lb bag on each shoulder, which wasn't bad for someone who only weighed 118 lbs at that time. He has fond memories as an Assistant Pastor going to nursing homes. Throughout his career, Will was a Navy Chaplain during WWII, a professor of the new testament at Berkeley Baptist Divinity school for close to 11 years and before retiring he worked for student affairs as a Student Advisor for graduate students at Cal Berkeley. During his time at the seminary he was a teaching assistant in music and speech. At the USO he and his future wife Betty met, Will sang Bass and Betty sang Metso. They would later be married and would celebrate 74 beautiful years together. From their love, the family grew; Will has two sons, two grand daughters and four great granddaughters. Will isn't done yet, he is currently working on a book titled, "The Man Jesus." He has about 6 chapters done and will probably end with a total of 10 chapters when it is completed. We look forward to his new book. In the meantime you can catch Will and his friend Piano Player Jack, playing piano and singing at Downtown Pleasant Hill for Happy Hour! Read more

Resident Spotlight - Father Tom Burns

Meet Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident, Father Tom Burns - Born in San Francisco on November 22, 1925, to John Joseph (Joe) and Helen Burns, Tom was their firstborn child. Three and a half years later he was followed by his brother William. Joe worked for General Electric and Helen was a homemaker. Seeking warmer weather, the family moved to San Mateo when Tom was a baby. Although Tom and William were not close as youngsters they became great friends in early adulthood which lasted throughout their lives including attending seminary together and becoming priests. When Tom started school, he loved his kindergarten teacher so much he wanted to repeat the class. The love of school, however, did not last and he found more enjoyment playing tennis and other pursuits. When he came of high school age he attended Bellarmine College Preparatory to which he had to commute by train about an hour each way. Bellarmine, the second oldest Jesuit high school west of the Mississippi River, was founded in 1851 and is one of 59 Jesuit high schools in the U.S. Tom’s academic interest and performance grew here and the hour-long commute each way gave ample time for homework. After graduation, Tom enlisted in the United States Navy during WWII and served for three years. He was trained as a hospital corpsman which is an enlisted medical specialist of the Navy. He served on the USS Repose which was a Haven-class hospital ship and was among the first ships to be able to receive casualties directly by helicopter. The ship traveled to many locations including Mare Island, Hawaii, Okinawa, and Shanghai. At one point it was caught in a typhoon with waves as high as 75 feet and winds of 150 miles per hour. They managed to regain control by sailing into the eye of the storm then navigating to safety. After the Navy, Tom returned to Santa Clara University for two years then enrolled at St. Patrick’s Seminary and University in Menlo Park. He was ordained as a priest at St. Mary’s Cathedral in 1954 and served as an assistant pastor in several Bay Area communities. He later served as chaplain at the University of California San Francisco for many years. Later in life, he pursued other vocational interests and worked for St. Anthony’s which has been providing essential support to San Francisco residents living in poverty since 1950. [caption id="attachment_21093" align="alignleft" width="400"] Residents Father Tom Burns and Connie Malone wave to the crowd just after being named Carlton Pleasant Hill’s Harvest King and Queen.[/caption] Father Tom has lived in our Carlton Senior Living Pleasant Hill community for ten years and enjoys it very much. He appreciates the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff and was even selected at Carlton Senior Living Pleasant Hill's first ever Harvest King. Tom was an avid tennis player and cyclist but now opts for fitness walking. He has a consistent schedule that includes a morning walk, daily mass, reading-including two newspapers and visiting with friends and ministering to those in need. Tom loves to read mysteries and religious books, enjoys movie classics, westerns and comedies, and listening to classical music. Honestly, I don’t think you could find a nicer guy. Father Tom is humble, friendly, easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. He is a wonderful asset to our community and a favorite companion among the residents as well as staff members.         View additional Resident Spotlight articles.

Resident Spotlight - Dan Julian

Meet Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident, Dan Julian - Daniel “Dan” Julian was born in the beach town of Santa Barbara, California on July 21, 1923, to parents Frank and Esther. He had three brothers and a sister. Dan has eight children; he and his first wife had three children together and his second wife, Doris, already had five daughters when they married. Dan moved to Davis from Berkeley after his wife passed away, to be closer to family. He moved to Carlton Senior Living Davis in early May, making him one of our newest neighbors. Dan served in the United States Navy (Seaman 1st Class) during World War II. He initially tried to enlist when he was only seventeen, but his parents would not sign the paperwork. He patiently waited one more year till he was eighteen and spent three years in the military. After the war, Dan worked in corrections. He served as a probation officer in the East Bay. He prides himself on being one of the most dedicated and hardworking officers in his station. He chalks this up to his drive and determination, as well as his ability to work with and befriend one of the top judges, Judge Richard Arnason. Dan was very keen on keeping people from returning to jail or prison.  He would go above and beyond to show that his clients were on the right track. On one of the last cases Dan ever worked, he was able to save a man’s life. He recognized that his client was exhibiting symptoms of a brain tumor and was able to refer him to a doctor for a diagnosis and surgery.  Helping people turn their lives around was extremely rewarding.  Dan believes that if you can do something for another person to help them function in society, you should do it! Dan has traveled to Europe, the South Pacific, and Mexico. He especially loved his time in Mexico. While there, he bought a reconditioned Volkswagen van and had tons of fun driving it. Since there was a lot of theft in the area, Dan made it look like there was an anti-theft system in the van. This little trick kept his van safe from break-ins. Dan likes traveling, reading, and writing. He loves art and especially enjoys being an artist’s model. He likes classical music, especially Johann Sebastian Bach. His favorite meal is a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and his favorite dessert is fruit from sunny climates. Dan wants to be remembered as a someone who is thoughtful and kind. When asked about advice he would pass along to others, he suggests that people to always find a way to work with others. He most admires Judge Arnason, his former colleague. They worked in complete harmony to help those in need. Dan’s favorite thing about Carlton Senior Living Davis are the people, as they are all very pleasant View additional Resident Spotlight articles. Written by Ben Slade     Read more
