Elizabeth Irwin "Betty" Peterson Obituary
March 19, 1927 - January 20, 2016 Elizabeth Irwin Peterson (Betty) passed away on January 20, 2016, in Rancho Santa Margarita at the age of 88. Betty was born in Hollywood, CA to R. Randall Irwin and Louise Cutter Irwin on March 19, 1927. She married Robert Peterson on October 22, 1955, in Glendale, CA and lived in La Canada, CA for most of their long, well-traveled, happy marriage. She attended Eagle Rock High School, and graduated from Glendale High School, Glendale College and UCLA where she earned her teaching credential. Betty loved her 35-year teaching career so much that she substituted in the Los Angeles Unified School District long after retiring. Her passions were classical music, the opera and serving as a docent at Topanga Canyon State Park, Descanso Gardens in La Canada and Eaton Canyon in Sierra Madre. Betty is survived by her husband, Bob, daughters Jill Peterson and Jean Page, two grandchildren Tyler Page (Melanie) and Jamie Page, a sister, Pat Walzak (Ken), and three nieces and two nephews.
