About Cathryn Wendel Bransten

2001-01-27 04:00:00 PDT San Francisco -- Cathryn Scheeline Bransten, a onetime member of the San Francisco Jewish Community Center board, died at age 83 on Tuesday at the Sequoias retirement community in San Francisco after a brief illness. Mrs. Bransten's death came just nine days after Edward Bransten, her husband of 62 years and an executive with MJB Coffee Co. in San Francisco, died at the age of 94. Mrs. Bransten was born in San Francisco on July 2, 1917, and grew up on Clay Street. She attended Girls High School in San Francisco and the University of California at Berkeley. She met Edward Bransten at the wedding of a mutual friend; the couple married shortly thereafter and spent the next six decades in the same four- story house on Clay Street. The couple traveled widely in the United States, Europe and Asia, but family members said Mrs. Bransten loved San Francisco best. "She was particularly proud of her view of 3Com Park," said her niece, Anne Scheeline. "She actually went to a game as recently as last season." Mrs. Bransten was a former member of the board of directors at the San Francisco Jewish Community Center and Mt. Zion Hospital, where she was president of the Women's Auxiliary from 1967 to 1969. She was also an avid reader, artist, music lover, cook and collector of antique coffee grinders.
