    Myrna Ross

    MYRNA ROSS is best remembered today for having been in a half dozen of the mid 1960s beach movies in which she played 'Puss', the brunette girl who was in ERIC von ZIPPER'S gang.

    As TONY FRANCIOSA'S protective secretary Sally in the 1966 ANN MARGRET film THE SWiNGER

    While in Las Vegas over the July 4th holiday in 1967, she wed STUART NELSON, a successful Beverly Hills men's clothier.on an episode of GET SMART in which she played Fatima, an Arabian princess


    MYRNA worked less as the two decided to start a family. In 1970 they welcomed a daughter whom they named TIFFANY and 3 years later, a second daughter SABRINA was born.

    On December 26, 1975, the NELSONS along with MYRNA'S mother, and automobile publishing magnate BOB PETERSON, his wife MARGIE and their two small boys were headed to the LITTLE KING RANCH in Colorado for a skiing vacation.
    After they arrived at Stapleton Airport in Denver they were to take a chartered plane for the final leg of their destination. BOB PETERSON had some business that needed his attention so he and MARGIE stayed at the airport so he could make a conference call. The NELSONS, MYRNA'S mother and the PETERSON boys took the first charter plane out with the senior PETERSONS planning on following in a few hours.

    The plane went off course during a snow storm and crashed outside Granby, Colorado killing all on board.

    a MITSUBISI MU-2B
    the same type aircraft in which MYRNA & the others perished.

    NEWSPAPER ARTICLE:


    SEARCHERS SPOT DOWNED PLANE.

    NINE LOSE LIVES.

    Granby, Colo. -- Two men who dropped from a hovering helicopter to the wreckage of a plane near the Continental Divide signaled Sunday that none of the nine persons aboard survived, the Civil Air Patrol reported.
    A two-day, air and ground search for the aircraft, which was ferrying eight Californians to a skiing holiday, had ended earlier Sunday when a CAP search plane spotted the wreckage at about 8,000 feet on the east side of the divide, near the Winter Park Ski area.
    DICK DARDEN of the CAP said two Air Force helicopters dispatched to the area were forced down short of the crash site because of sudden snow showers.
    One of the helicopters then went back up with a member of the Rocky Mountain Rescue Squad and a representative of the Gilpin County coroner, DARDEN said.
    He said the chopper still could not land but dropped the two men into the crash area. They fired a signal flare that indicated all aboard the downed aircraft were dead, DARDEN said.
    Recovery teams were to be sent in Monday, he said.
    The chartered Mitsubishi carrying five adults and four children vanished Friday after take off from Denver's Stapleton Airport en route to Granby, Colo., for a holiday skiing vacation.
    DARDEN said the crash site, on an 11,800-foot mountain, was about 25 miles south of the plane's destination and 12 miles south of Rollinsville, Colo.
    Capt. HARY ELGIN, chief of the CAP, said the search for the aircraft was the largest in recent Colorado history.
    ELGIN said the plane, piloted by LEE HOLLINGSWORTH, president of the Denver-based Star Aviation Co., left Stapleton International Airport at 5:30 p.m. EST Friday on a 30-minute flight to Granby. He said the passengers, all residents of Los Angeles, planned a vacation at the Little King Ranch.
    Passengers were identified as STUART NELSON, 43; his wife, MYRNA, 36; their two children, TIFFANY, 5, SEBRINA, 2; MRS. NELSON'S mother, BOBBY ROSS, 60; GARY NUHIVRIAN, 28; BOB PETERSON, 10 and his brother, RICHIE, 9.
    ELGIN said NELSON is head of a Beverly Hills men's clothing design and manufacturing firm.
    The PETERSON boys' parents left on a second plane from Denver en route to Granby shortly after HOLLINGSWORTH'S plane departed and arrived safely, ELGIN said.
    He said the area was so rugged that is was closed even to snowmobile traffic. Drifts in the area will reach up to 30 feet in depth later in the winter.

    I remember her from the Beach Party movies. I had no idea this had happened either. Tragic especially with the kids.

    The MU2 type aircraft, the one involved in the accident, had(has) a reputation as being difficult to fly. Of course as conditions deteriorate the degree of difficulty increases. I would definitely pass on chartering a MU2.
