Predeceased by husband Walter Peterson and daughter Ann Peterson.
Mom grew up in Princeton before moving to Armstrong where she raised her family. Mom was a founding member of the Armstrong Farmers Market with her homemade butter, farm eggs and asparagus.
Anyone who knew her, knew they could show up at any time and she would “put another spud in the pot”. Mom always said the best part of her life was her grandchildren that she was so proud of. Tim, Katie, Breeana and Daniel have tons of grandma stories to share. Mom’s artistic talents skipped a generation to her grandchildren, who at an early age like to hang out with grandma and create things.
Now mom will be hanging out with her many friends and family she has lost over the years.
Mrs. B will have the coffee and pie ready for them to catch up.
As per Kathy’s request there will be no service and no flowers. Anyone wishing can make a donation to the BC Cancer Society.
Our family would like to thank the Armstrong Ambulance attendants, her Doctors and the staff at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital who took the time to remember her name and made the many hospital stays bearable. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
