Barbara June Peterson, BHS 1967

Barbara Peterson passed away on November 10, 1994 at home in Burbank at age 45. Barbara's earthly remains were cremated and are buried at Grandview Memorial Park in Glendale.

Barbara lived and suffered with Muscular Dystrophy disease for most of her life. Three years before her death she also suffered a debilitating stroke. She moved back home with her parents in Burbank, and from then on until her death they lovingly cared for Barbara themselves in their home.

Barbara's death was due to complications of the Muscular Dystrophy, the stroke, and at the end also pneumonia.

Barbara went to Burbank High School, Burbank, California and should of graduated with the class of 1967, but due to her health issues she fell behind and graduated in 1968. Her senior picture in with the Class of 1967. In our yearbook next to Barbara's senior picture it says College Prep and that she will be majoring in English in college.

During the years that Barbara was on her own she worked for many years for "Joni and Friends", the Christian ministry organization of well known Christian author and artist, Joni Eareckson Tada.
