Obituary for Beverly Jean Peterson

Beverly (Bev) Jean Peterson (nee Hall) of Warren, Michigan was called home to the Lord on April 23, 2019. She passed quietly in her home, surrounded by her loved ones.
Bev was born on September 24, 1941 to Edward and Amy Hall (nee Culley). She was the middle sister to Joyce Mahrt (Dale Mahrt) and Patti Midkiff (Chuck Midkiff). She was a 1959 graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Bev married Gary C. Peterson on September 15, 1961, at which time her good friend Sharon Peterson Baker (John Baker) became her sister. Bev raised two daughters- Kathryn Robertson (Melissa McCaughin) and Karin Donnelly. Later she helped raise her six Donnelly grandchildren - Keene (Deserae and daughter Abby), Kieffer (Juli), Logan (Catie), Kyrsten (Cullen), Hanna and Paul.
In addition to her full time job as a loving and caring mother to her daughters, she worked as a receptionist for the majority of her career. Bev also spent a great deal of her time volunteering at her beloved Royal Oak Church (ROC) in many capacities, but her superpower was her food and hospitality ministry.
Bev was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and two brothers-in-law. She is survived by her two sisters and her sister-in-law, a brother-in-law, two daughters, a daughter-in-law, six grandchildren, a great grandchild, and six nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her granddogs Greta and Piglet, grandcat Emma, great granddogs Lavender and Titan, and great grandcat Leo. We will all miss her so very much, especially Greta and Piglet.
Bev lived the words of Norman Vincent Peele: “Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others.”
The memorial service will be held at Royal Oak Church (ROC) 411 E. Eleven Mile Road, Royal Oak, Michigan 48067 on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 11:00 A.M. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Remember the Children-
