|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
The youngest of three, Patty Petersen was born December 2, 1954 in Glendale, California. When her parents divorced in 1962, Patty and her older brother Paul went to live with their mother, who later remarried.
Paul was one of the stars of The Donna Reed Show and Patty wanted to be on the show with him. In late 1962, producer Tony Owen said she could be on the show and thus, in January 1963 Patty joined the cast as Trisha, an adopted child. She stayed on until the end in 1966.
After several commercials and industrial films, she semi-retired to marry and raise a family. She continued her professional training with emphasis as a country songwriter/singer. Patty, who now spells her name Patti, is also a writer and owner of Internovel, an Internet company for various novice authors.
Patti Petersen Mirkovich now is a teacher of English and computer science at a Catholic school and volunteer coach for the girls' softball team. She has two children, Tim and Melissa.
