Nancy Hellman Bechtle, a philanthropist and pillar of San Francisco society died Wednesday night at her Presidio Heights home. The cause of death was metastasized lung cancer, said her husband, Joachim Bechtle. She was 83.
Friendly and energetic, Bechtle stood out in any crowd, particularly at a gala for the performing arts, where she was usually in the center of a group seeking her frank opinion on civic matters.
