Emily Jean Peterson, 39, was born on June 25, 1975 in Decorah, Iowa. As a little girl Emily was bubbly, happy, and spoiled by her two sisters and her brother. She was the apple of her daddy’s eye. Emily was the most generous, good-hearted, and caring ‘mom’ anyone had ever met. Emily was a social butterfly. Emily graduated from Spring Grove High School in 1993. As a student she was extremely popular and played volleyball and basketball just to spend more time with friends.

Emily’s greatest joys of all time were her two sons, Gabriel and Carter. Emily was always proud to share stories of the memories made with her sons. She loved to travel, relax on the water, and spend unending amounts of time with her nieces and nephews. Most people recognize Emily for her contagious smile and dancing eyes. She was an instigator of fun- always encouraging others to have a great time while she observed. She truly enjoyed keeping a nice home, cooking full, amazing meals, and growing gorgeous flowers.

Emily spent her last day, August 17, 2014 laughing with her sons and special friends. Emily is survived by her sons, Gabriel and Carter, her special friends, Richard, Whitney (Connor), Dexter, Hilary, and Addy, her parents Ray and Pat & Mary, her siblings Cindy (John), Christy (Tracy), Eric (Annie), Josie (Garrett), Jeremiah (Kari), and Charlie, her grandma Donna, and several nieces, nephews, and loving friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Allan, Grandpa Richard, Uncle David, nephew Matt, and friend Rikki.

Memorial services for Emily Jean Peterson were at 11 a.m. Friday, August 22 at the Burr Oak Lutheran Church. Visitation was from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday evening at the Lindstrom Funeral Home in Harmony.

Gabriel Erickson will be Urnbearer, with honorary Urnbearers: Carter Nisbit, Dennis Barnes, Mike Blaess, Nicolas Tilleraas, Lucas Korkowski, and Tracy Peterson.
