Julie Rosen, artist and founding member of the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park succumb to cancer last week. Julie moved to San Francisco last year to be near her children due to her failing health. Her last among her many deeds for the Citizens Committee was spearheading the drive to install the new children’s play area at Stadium Way and Scott Avenue and another play area on Casanova Terrace on the east side of the Pasadena Freeway.
