It was there where she met her husband to be, Robert Christy. She moved to Denver, Colorado in 1951 and became a stewardess for Frontier Airlines, eventually becoming Chief Stewardess.

Janet belonged to several organizations, such as Welcome Wagon, Las Candalistas, CAP, and the Encore Circle to name just a few. She chaired numerous committees, fund raised and was often asked to model for various fashion shows. Playing bridge, extensive traveling and golf were just a few of her other interests. In 1984, recognizing a need for a financial support group for the newly formed Norris Theater, Janet Christy founded ACT II. The group raises funds for the theatre by producing musical variety shows, as well as hosting luncheons and fashion shows. Since its inception, Act II has raised over $450,000 in support of the theater. Janet remained an active member of the Board of Directors of the Norris Theater for many years. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, her two daughters; sons-in-law, Dr. Oliver Bohnsack and Dr. Oner Moral; and two grandsons, Robert and Christopher-Drake.

Fine Ph.D., Barbara  
Barbara J. Fine, Ph.D. Dr. Barbara Fine, a 41 year resident of the South Bay, passed away on Friday March 13, 2015 in Santa Monica, CA. at the age of 73. Barbara grew up in El Paso, Texas where her family had deep generational roots. She never lost her connection to Texas but she was eager to know what was beyond the borders. With the optimistic spirit of a true adventurer, she went to the Northeast to start her career as a Spanish teacher. A short time later, she moved across the country to Carmel, California. The ability to pursue these new experiences with confident energy was evident throughout her life. She was passionate about understanding the human condition. After raising her two sons, she dedicated herself to sharing what she learned with others so that they could connect to their own joy and courage. Dr. Fine was in practice as a psychotherapist for over thirty years in Manhattan Beach. She received an M. A., in Marriage and Family Therapy from Philips Graduate Institute and a Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology from the Graduate Center for Child Development, a program of the Reiss Davis Child Study Center in West Los Angeles. She was a co-founder of Manhattan Beach Community Counseling Services, which provides training opportunities for pre-licensed therapists and offers affordable counseling to the South Bay Communities. She shared her experience with many of these therapists as their supervisor. In recent years she immersed herself in newly available research about the human brain. She studied Mindfulness meditation with the most noted leaders. She shared what she had learned by starting mindfulness classes for the community and incorporating mindfulness into her practice. She also wrote, recorded, and published a uniquely accessible book and audio cd titled "Just Being with Mindful Breath." This CD continues to be listened to by hundreds of people both near and far for everyday meditation practice. Barbara was not only a hardworking, well-respected professional. She was full of energy and knew how to have fun. She maintained a restful retreat in her beloved Carmel. Over the years she became an avid golfer. She followed music and movies of all kinds. She particularly enjoyed her season tickets to the LA Philharmonic and LA Opera. She had an extended family of wonderful friends with whom she could share these many interests. And, recently, the most enjoyable moments of Barbara's life have been spent with her granddaughter. Time with Aria was her new adventure and her new passion. Barbara was still learning and sharing her love and wisdom. Barbara is survived by her husband of eight years, Anders Nyburg of Helsingborg Sweden; sons, David Arancio and Joe (Jori) Arancio of Manhattan Beach and Aria Arancio her granddaughter. A Celebration of Barbara's life will be held at Manhattan Beach Community Church on Friday March 27, 2015 at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Manhattan Beach Community Church - c/o Manhattan Beach Counseling Center. Visit www.lafuneral.com to send the family messages and share memories.
