Our mother, Peggy Petersen, is free from the debilitating Alzheimer’s disease. She passed away peacefully April 14, 2020.
She was a vibrant person and lived life to the fullest. Peggy was an avid reader and was paranoid she would read all the books and nothing new would be left. She taught English to students in Lead High School in South Dakota and Weld Central in Keenesburg, Colorado. Even in the throes of Alzheimer’s she would correct grammar mistakes made by people around her.
She is survived by Lynette (Tom) Petersen Helland, Lance (Cathy) Petersen, Larisa (John) Petersen Bailey, and Lincoln (Cindy) Petersen. She had 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
We loved her to the moon and back.

To the Petersen family, no words can even describe the feelings I have for your mother! As a child you all were our neighbors for years and I shared many secrets with Peggy, she was like another mom to me, she was just so warm, sweet and would put you in your place if needed!! She just always had that smile of hers and a lot of wisdom to share!! She will be missed very much. My deepest love and prayers are with you all.

Dear Lance and family, So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Peggy was a very special lady. I will always remember the various trips for debate during high school and the trip from Colorado to South Dakota for Christmas break in December 1980 as Peggy was teaching Colorado and I was attending college in Denver. She had away of making everyone feel at ease and welcome. My heart felt sympathy and prayers go out to all of you. Anita (Plaggemeyer) Da Silva
