Obituary for May Averol Peterson

May Averol Peterson of Amherst passed away at home with her loving family at her bedside on October 29, 2017. She was born at home in the Town of New Hope, Portage Co. to Lorend W. Florence (Jacobson) Severson on May 23, 1942. She is survived by her 8 children; Dabian Peterson, Darren (Cynthia Meyer) Peterson, Darrell Peterson, Dori (Steven Smith) Peterson, Darrick (Amanda Drake) Peterson, Dealoni Peterson, Devin Peterson, Deborah Peterson, 18 grandchildren; Jamie(Kenny) Harvey, Devin Miller, Bianca Peterson, Melissa Meyer, Kirsten Peterson, Xavier Matchopatow, Alex Jacobson, Nikkitah Ibe, Tristen Smith, Jullian Peterson, Zander Drake, Evan Boaz, Savannah Drake-Felton, Justin Lathrop, Coltin Rolack, Jordan Rutka, Ashton Peterson, Arryanna Sartor, 4 great grandchildren, Taivon Harvey, Nakia Harvey, Amay Harvey, Alexis Kietzmann, one sister Dorothy (Donald) Berg, 3 Nephews; Scott, Kurt, Christopher and niece Jennifer. She is preceded in death by her parents and her daughter Christian Joy Peterson.

May had several roles to fill.   In her earlier years she worked as a convenience store clerk. She also worked at New Hope Lutheran Church as a grave digger for her father with Johnny Gagas and then she worked as a census taker. Later in life she worked for Jerry’s Small Engines in Arnott. She did all this and still was a homemaker. When she wasn’t working she was spending time sitting by the camp fire in her backyard, or checking out nearby rummage sales. Sundays were reserved for radio Church services at home, Polkas and the Green Bay Packers. But most of all she enjoyed spending time with her loving family.

Services will be held at Nelsonville Evangelical Lutheran Church on Friday, November 3, 2017 with Reverend Dwight Anderson officiating. Visitation will be at 9:00 a.m. until the time of Service at 11:00 a.m. John J. Buettgen Funeral Home is assisting family at this time. On line condolences can be made at www.HonorOne.com
