Class of 1959
Passed May 16, 2009
My sister, Lynn Brown Burnett died in Yuma, Arizona, where she had resided for over 20 years. Though she underwent aggressive treatment, her breast cancer, diagnosed in about 2004, metastasized to lungs, bone, and liver last year.
She wasn't one of the "cool, in-crowd" girls at EB, but she loved it there and loved everybody. She idolized certain students; many of you couldn't know it, but she was your biggest fan ("Oh, you should have seen what she wore today; you should have heard the funny thing he said today!"). When she was bullied and scorned by some for her seeming eccentricity, she would talk about it at dinner, perhaps cry a little and then bounce right back the next morning and walk down the block to school for another day of psychosocial adventure. She loved discovering complexities in others and enjoyed nothing more than learning new things about classmates and teachers, oh, yes, and academic subjects too. She might have been among the nerd subculture, but "geeks" didn't have the respect afforded by that term back then.
Her dearest friends were Karen Kauk and Ann Charlton, and the names Sami Jenkins, Jean Spencer, and Bruce Detrick (she named her first son after him) come to my mind when I think of people my sister said treated her with special kindness.
I shall always wonder what she would have achieved had she gone to high school 40 years later than she did, if she had had the protection of Title IX and the motivation and empowerment of Feminism.

Pete Anthony Cisneros
Class of 1969
Passed Feb 08, 2011
Peter Anthony "Pappy" Cisneros Sr. 1951 - 2011 Peter Anthony Cisneros passed away peacefully on February 8, 2011 surrounded by his wife, children and their spouses. Peter or "Tony" was born on November 8, 1951 to Peter and Trinidad Cisneros and grew up with siblings Tommy, Linda, Christy, and Arthur. Peter graduated from East Bakersfield, High School in 1969; he married his high school sweetheart, Edna Flores. They moved to San Diego where he worked for The Happy Steak. Shortly after moving to San Diego, Pete and Edna had their first two children, Peter Anthony Cisneros, Jr. and Thomas Gregory. Peter returned to Bakersfield where he managed and opened several Perkos and Happy Steak restaurants. When he was not involved in the restaurant business, he worked in the oilfields in many capacities. From Bakersfield, Peter moved his family to Oklahoma where he managed his father-in-law's Suit and Slack Shop. The final move brought them back to Bakersfield and shortly thereafter Pete and Edna had their third child, Sarah Elizabeth McMillan. It was in Bakersfield that Pete was able to fulfill his lifelong dream of opening up his own restaurant, Pappy's Coffee Shop. After experiencing excellent growth, he hired additional employees and in 2008 opened a second Pappy's in Shafter, CA. He found endless joy in his three grandchildren: Cierra, Matthew and Cadence and never turned down an opportunity for them to come and spend time with Papa. Peter suffered a major stroke in 2003 and his mobility decreased, however that did not stop him from being involved in every aspect of Pappy's. He loved being there and never missed an opportunity to hear a customer's life story and to share his in return. He was proud of what Pappy's had become and appreciated his employees and the loyalty of the customers. He is preceded in death by his parents, Peter Mata and Trinidad Cruz Cisneros; brothers, Thomas and Arthur Cisneros. The family would like to thank the staff and physicians of the Bakersfield Heart Hospital and Mercy Hospital for providing excellent care. In addition they appreciate the Dr.'s W. Baker, S. Singh, T. Ferrar, Amin, Klang, Joshi, Garcia-Pacheco and Ahmed for providing the best medical care available. Visitation will be on February 10th, 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Mortuary. Services will be February 11th, 3:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Memorial Chapel; graveside service will immediately follow at Hillcrest Memorial Park. A celebration of Pappy's life will follow the graveside service for family, friends, customers and employees. www.bakersfield.com/obits
