MARY KAY PETERSON ROCKTON - Mary Kay Peterson, Rockton, IL, mother of Chelsea, wife of Thomas Peterson, daughter to Roger and Tynee Peterson, sister to Nancy Peterson, aunt to Shelbie Malinski, died of a broken heart March 16, 2014. Mary was a beautiful woman with a wickedly smart sense of humor and a brilliant artistic flair. She never recovered from the loss of her only daughter, Chelsea, 7 years ago. The only thing worse than losing a loved one, is the thought of what life would have been like had they not been in it. Mary was a lover of nature, so as you tend your spring flowers perhaps you will remember Mary's favorite line from an Emerson Poem: " earth laughs in flowers..." Emerson. A celebration of life will be held at a future date. McCorkle Funeral Home, 767 N Blackhawk Blvd, Rockton, Illinois, assisted the family. Memorials in lieu of flowers to: Special Olympics (http://www.specialolympics.org/ ) and or CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate Program for Children) (http://www.winnebagocountycasa.org/ ) online or mail to: Winnebago Co.
