Posted in Peterson Obituaries

Arlyss Jean Peterson, 84, of Peterson, died Saturday, June 13, 2015.

Arlyss was born September 19, 1930 in St. Charles to Charles and Ruby (Elliot) Lowe. She was raised in Winona, graduating from Winona High School. She worked at Bay State Milling for a few years before meeting the love of her life, John Peterson, and moving to Peterson. They were married on December 26, 1953. She worked at Tri County Electric until her retirement.

John and Arlyss spent their lives farming; she loved working along with her husband, keeping track of the books, and making sure all of the workers were fed a nice meal. Arlyss loved to be outside and especially enjoyed tending to her flower gardens. She was an amazing cook who was always offering food to anyone who stopped over to visit. Arlyss was very generous and selfless; her family meant the world to her, especially her grandchildren, whom she adored.

She is survived by her son, Jon (Lori) of Peterson; daughter, Bethany (Chris) Peterson-Lee of Money Creek; three grandchildren: Taylor (Gina) of Peterson, Kaitlyn (fiancé Lucas Schmitt) of Hawkeye, Iowa, and John Lee of Money Creek; four great-grandchildren: Olivia, Lane, & Ava Peterson and Wyatt Schmitt; two sisters: Marillyn Halstead of Danville, Va. and Lois Harvey of La Crosse, Wisc.; sister-in-law, Jan Lowe of Tomahawk, Wisc.; many nieces and nephews and a very close friend, Mary Rislove.

Arlyss was preceded in death by her husband, John; daughter, Stacy Peterson; sisters: Mildred Deutschmann and Shirley Miller; and one brother, Harold Lowe.

A time of remembrance took place at 11:45 a.m., Friday, June 19 at Hoff Funeral & Cremation Service - Rushford, followed by a visitation until 2 p.m. Burial preceded the visitation at Rushford Lutheran Cemetery.

Memorials are preferred to the donor’s favorite charity.
