Student who was killed on board the bombed Pan Am flight 103 which exploded over Scotland killing everyone on board. Theo was the only child of Dan and Susan Cohen of Port Jervis, New York. A junior at Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, she was returning home from a semester in London. Theo's all-too-brief life was marked by her talent as an actress and singer. In the fourth grade she got the lead in the class play and her life's work - and love - was launched. From that moment on acting and singing became the central focus of her life. She appeared in every high school and community production available. She never took a summmer vacation. From her first year in high school she always worked in summer stock, starting as an apprentice and finally in 1988 as the lead in the MacHaydn Theater production of "The Fantasticks." While in London with Syracuse Univeristy's DIPA program, Theo went to the theater twice a week and traveled to Greece, Scotland, the Netherlands and France. She took every theater course she could while in London and had plans to start an alternative theater, along with Miriam Wolf, another 103 victim, and other SU friends, upon her return to the United States. She hoped one day to be a star. The VPA (Victim of Pan Am) tell us her dreams came to an end with the disaster that happened in Lockerbie. We'll never know what greatness she would have attained and whether her hopes and dreams would have come to fruition.
