Please join us for a Celebration of Life in honor of our beloved friend, Diana Barnwell (Sep 11, 1938 - May 17, 2021). Diana was a driving force in LA's historic preservation movement and a lifelong civil activist. She founded our organization, the Highland Park Heritage Trust, after funding the neighborhood's first survey of historic homes and commercial buildings. She also served on the Southwest Museum Board of Trustees and the Board of the Mount Washington Association, where she advocated for the site of LA's first museum and led the expansion of collections showcased at the National Register of Historic Places. We will gather on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at 9 a.m. on the back patio of the historic Gamble House in Pasadena (4 Westmoreland Place). Our program will include lovely cello and harp music by local musicians, a eulogy by Diana's dear friend Daniel Wright, and a few poems and personal tributes by Mt. Washington friends. There will be plenty of time for personal remembrances by attendees who wish to share as well. This Celebration of Diana’s life is hosted by her long-time friends and neighbors: Roberta and Todd Frankel, Julie Nagesh, Daniel Wright, and BJ Gallagher. *If you plan to attend, please note: -The event will be held outdoors.
