Alta Frances Haselwood Peterson. Aug. 19, 1917 to Nov. 28, 1999. Alta and her husband Joe moved to Scripps Ranch in 1977. The Petersons drove in many of the Scripps Ranch 4th of July parades in their gold Cadillac convertible and in their Ford Model A roadster, and Alta was responsible for getting the San Diego Model A Club to join the parade. Mrs. Peterson had been active in the Friends of the Library Book Nook and had joined RSVP. Alta and Joe Peterson were the among original residents of Timberlane II, and Alta was instrumental in the original landscaping of the complex. Survivors include her son Gary, grandson Rick, both of Orange County, and sister Belvadine Boyd, Manitoue Springs, Colorado. She will be missed by the many people she touched in her 82 years.

Dr. Gregory Schieman passed on in his Scripps Ranch home on Nov. 25 at age 44. Dr. Schieman specialized in interventional cardiology and, as his wife Carol says, “absolutely loved his work. He was grateful that it afforded him time to spend with his family.” Cub Scout meetings and soccer games were a common part of his life as was working out at the Scripps Ranch Swim and Racquet Club. In 1997, Dr. Schieman was diagnosed with colon cancer but continued working and playing golf, a game he loved. Friend Scott Rieger said, “Greg had a wonderful sense of humor and relaxed presence with people, yet he was intensely self-disciplined and focused.” Survivors include his wife Carol; a daughter, Kimberly Ann, 11; and a son, Jeffrey, 8. Donations are suggested to the American Cancer Society.
