Petersen, Kathy Lynne - Juneau  
Kathy Peterson died July 16, 2015 at age 46 after an extended battle with depression. Kathy was a vivacious, beautiful and confident woman living in acceptance. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, friend and leader. She always gave freely and without expectations, even donating ovum for a lifetime family friend. People were drawn to her outgoing personality, intelligence, and unbounded generosity. She had many good friends simply because she was a good and true friend, helping so many through challenges. She was thoughtful, well respected, honored, precious and fun. She enjoyed dancing, skating, nature, and cheering on her sons in their sporting pursuits. She loved her annual cabin girl outings with friends in the great outdoors, and traveling on spa trips with her mom. The Kathy we all knew and loved for so many years shared a genuine zest for life. Kathy was a graduate of JDHS class of 1987 and graduated from UAF in 1992 with a BA in Broadcast Journalism.

During summer breaks at college, she drove for Princess Tours, helped her mother with her B&B business and soaked up the warm sun every chance she could. After college, she married Drake Peterson, also of Juneau and JDHS Class of 1987. After college, they enjoyed Maui for a year before settling back down in Juneau to begin a family.
