Philanthropist, socialite, chief of protocol for the State of California, chief of protocol for the City and County of San Francisco and a former member of our board of trustees died on December 3, 2021. She was our beloved friend. We are grateful for how she gathered the communities of San Francisco and beyond with a joyful spirit and her wonderful instinct for celebration. Grace Cathedral and this city are better for the decades Charlotte spent dedicated to making this a welcoming and inclusive place. May God continue to bless her today and always.
Prayer for Charlotte Mailliard Shultz (9/26/1933 – 12/3/2021)
O, God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day, our sister, Charlotte.
We thank you for giving her to us, her family and friends, to know that to love on our earthly pilgrimage.
Give us faith to see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue our course on earth until by your call, we are reunited with those who have gone before, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
