Etta L. Peters
Etta L. Peters, 80, a resident of Wauconda, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 21, 2015 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in New Boston, OH on July 3, 1934 to Robert and Ethel Myers. Etta loved to sing, dance, travel, cook, play poker and paint. Her passion was being around her family and friends, who she loved dearly and unconditionally. She lived her life gracefully to the fullest and relished in all of life’s joys. We were all blessed to have learned many valuable lessons from Etta throughout her 80 years and her everlasting light and spirit will shine upon us all forever and ever. Etta is survived by her children, Robin L. (Len) Niemi, Mark S. Peters of Los Angeles, CA, and Brett A. “Pookie” Peters; her grandchildren, Aisha, Jessica, Anthony and Billy; and her great-grandchildren, Michael, Meagan, Jordon, Justin, Sydney, Bella, Anthony, Xander, Emma and Parker. Etta was preceded in death by her loving husband, H O Peters, whom she met and married in Los Angeles, CA in 1957—a marriage made in Heaven and a life full of unequivocal love and devotion to each other. She was also preceded in death by her parents, her son, Earl “Skip” Stone and her granddaughter, Tammy Stone. Etta was a treasure to behold. We were all blessed that God aligned the stars and planets just right, to make us all part of her extraordinary journey through life as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother and friend. We will always love her to the Moon and back, just as she did us all.
