Pauline Peterson Cozzens, BHS '64 (1947-2012)

Just received the following sad news from Alan Landros...

Please keep Pauline's family in your prayers.

Pauline Peterson Cozzens passed away last night, Tuesday, November 27, at her home in San Marcos with her family with her. She was officially diagnosed with Stage Four Colon and Liver Cancer on May 24, 2012, six months and three days before her death. She was 65. Below is the message her mother, Virginia, sent me this morning.

Pauline was a 1964 graduate of Burbank High School, and this message is going to several of her classmates. (1947 is her correct year of birth. She finished school early.)

Alan also wrote this...

Pauline was a committed Born-Again Christian. All of her family was looking forward to her Homegoing to end the awful suffering she has endured for sometime now. A pain pump was finally implanted this past Sunday, but she still had horrible pain even with the pump. Pauline had been THE secretary at the Christian school connected to their church in San Marcos, Tri-City Christian School, for 25 years until she was forced to retire last May due to her illness. I've probably told you before that Pauline's dad, Paul Peterson BHS '35, was the pastor of the former First Baptist Church which was across from BHS at Fairmount and Glenoaks all throughout the 1960's while all of us were at BHS. Her grandfather, Emanuel Peterson, was the founder of Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church in Burbank at Harvard and Fifth Streets in 1941. One of her uncles was Roland "Pete" Peterson BHS '39, and longtime BHS teacher and coach. Two of her cousins are Linda Peterson Everett BHS '67, and Louanne Peterson BHS '70. Other family members who were BHS alums were uncle, Reinold Peterson BHS '32, and uncle and aunt, Arnold Peterson BHS '30 and Margaret Basolo Peterson BHS '30, and aunt, Ruth Peterson Finch BHS '44. (note: Emanuel Peterson is correct with one "m"; Emmanuel Church is correct with two "m" 's.)

Doris Adams Remembers Tim Burton, BHS '76

Received my Senior Bulldogs Newsletter today which is full of interesting info including this...

Mrs Doris Adams taught ART at BHS in the 1960’s and 1970’s. she is a very talented artist herself. She is now in late 80’s and still very active and involved in many things. She lives in Aliso Viejo in Orange County.

One of her BHS Art students was writer/producer/director Tim Burton, BHS ’76. About two years ago Tim Burton reconnected with Mrs Adams while he was preparing for the exhibit of his own art at two US shows, first in NYC at the Museum of Modern Art and then in Los Angeles at the LA County Museum of Art from May to October of 2011. Tim had a film crew go to Mrs Adams’ home to interview her in early 2011. That footage was edited into a video that was shown on monitors that the public could see during his art exhibits in the museums in both NY and LA. In the video Mrs Adams shares her memories of having Tim as a student at BHS, how quiet he was, how he always finished his art assignments early, all fond memories of Tim. Tim invited Mrs Adams and her whole family to the opening of his art exhibit in Los Angeles at the County Museum of Art in May of 2011, and they attended!

Recently in mid-September Mrs Adams received another invitation from Tim Burton, this time for her and her family to attend the premier of his newest film, “Frankenweenie”, which was held later in September! Mrs Adams thought we would like to know that Tim does remember his days at BHS.

Another of Doris Adams’ former BHS Art students, Alan Landros ’70, is in contact with her from time to time, and he received a note from her in September where she told of her latest contact with Tim Burton.

Teri McComas Mrasak, BHS '68, Stunt Girl!

Here's more goodies from Facebook... Did you know that Teri McComas was a stunt girl for the studios? Pretty cool!

Thank You, Teri Hill Clark, BHS '68 for posting the following :)

"We've come a long way, baby! In digging through 'Grannie's Trunk', I found this news article on one of our own forging the path!!! I will be putting the original in the mail to Teri McComas. The article may be difficult to read, but the bottom line is how, in 1971, Teri worked on the Universal Studio Stunt Show falling from buildings, cracking bull whips, and cracking bottles over bad guys' heads."
