May 22, 1937 – January 24, 2017
The Animation Guild is sad to announce that long-time Background Artist, Ann Guenther passed away on January 24, 2017. Ann started her Union career at Disney in 1957 on ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and worked at most of the major studios including Warner Bros and Filmation. Aside from being a terrific artist, Annie’s smile could light up a room and she could always be counted upon to wear her go-go boots to the Union holiday party. She was one-of-a-kind. We’ll miss you Annie!
Further details on services are not available at this time.
So sorry to hear this news. Our producer on Pinky and the Brain and a friend of mine Liz Holzman passed away yesterday. Liz was like a mother hen to us all. She mentored me during my first real directing job, she taught me how to make a shot epic, and she taught me how to be a good boss to my crew. She used to make waffles for us in her office if you can believe that! She was a really nice lady and although I didn’t stay in touch with her lately I will miss her. It’s weird to think it I know but it’s almost like both mom and dad are gone from Pinky and the Brain since Rusty Mills passed away as well ALSO from Cancer and we’re all left orphans. Rest in peace Liz Holzman. Narf. Narf.
We interviewed Liz early last year.
