Memories Timeline


  1. I saw your mother several times when I would be at Freedom Place. She would always brighten up when I told her my Bob worked with her Bob. She was a lovely lady. Bob and I send you and your family all our sympathy, love and prayers.

  2. Although we called her Aunt Mary, Mary Peters was like a grandmother to me, John, Nathan, Zachary and Benjamin. She was a huge part of our lives and has given us so much. We cant imagine what life would have been like without her at our weddings, holidays, baptisms, birthdays, communions, grad parties, etc. Always with her baking, joking and most of all her wonderful laughing. We all love her very much and she will forever be in our hearts and memories. Our sympathy to Bob, Arlene and family. Rest in Peace dear Aunt Mary after a long life well lived!

  3. Dear Bob and Arlene, My mom, sister, Keith, and I wish to offer our love and sympathy at this most difficult time. May our love and prayers be a comfort to your family. God bless you all. Myrtle Flowers Diana Flowers Linda & Keith Voelker
