Vera Mary Peterson


It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Vera Peterson on January 21, 2019 at the age of 90 years. Born in Saskatchewan, she grew up in Timmins, ON, and taught for many years before retiring to Penticton, BC, and more recently Edmonton, AB.

Predeceased by her husband Ruben Peterson, Vera will be sadly missed by her children, Eric and Eila; her daughter-in-law, Susan; her grandsons: Joel (Candace) and Aaron (Thomasine), and her great-grandson Emmett.

In harmony with her passion for teaching English to new Canadians, memorial donations in Vera’s honour may be made to the Lloyd Fourney Refugee Fund at First Presbyterian Church, 10025 – 105 St., Edmonton, AB, T5J 1C8 (or [email protected]).

Sorry, there are no details found...
