Peterson

She always liked a good party & music, wherever it could be had. She loved to dance, especially up at Harry's Place in Beloit in her final years of life. Oktoberfest was also a must for her too. She loved traveling, then spending her retirement years between Pearl Lake in South Beloit for the summer, and at her park model in Mesa, AZ for the winter. She was an avid reader, going to the public libraries on a regular basis, when she still drove.

Mom also liked her fish fry at the South Beloit American Legion on Friday nights, Culver's ice cream, chocolate, Dum-Dum's, coffee, and her beloved egg nog, that she had to have year round. Mom loved her sports, mainly college & NBA basketball, plus The Packer's.

She was a member of the Rockton American Legion Auxiliary in Rockton & Apache Junction, AZ. She also was a member of the VFW Auxiliary in Apache Junction, AZ !!! She worked for many years at the Wagon Wheel Resort in Rockton.

She was pre-deceased by her former husband Donald K. Peterson, her father Carl & mother Vera Bates, and her brother Charles Bates.

She is also survived by her sister Norma/Ray Bloom (also now deceased), Rose/Newell Lovejoy, John/Sheila Bates, Roger/Judy Bates and many nieces & nephews. Also survived by her grandchildren, Michelle/Matt Garnhart, Derek/Michelle (Karr Fonnemann) Peterson, Emily Peterson, Mallory/Tom Carr, Ken/DeAnn Peterson, and Tyler/Rita Peterson.
