Jerome D. Peterson Obituary
Jerome D. Peterson, 78

Waite Park

June 12, 1935 - January 23, 2014

Funeral services will be at 10:30 AM on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church for Jerome Peterson, 78, of Waite Park who died Thursday at the St. Cloud Hospital. Rev. Dee Pederson will officiate. Friends and relatives may call from 5:00 - 8:00 PM on Tuesday, January 28th at the Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in St. Cloud and one hour prior to services on Wednesday at the church.

Jerome was born in Alexandria, Minnesota to Walter and Edna (Cadwell) Peterson. He honorably served his country in the United States Air Force. He married Vera Freeberg on September 12th, 1959 in Osakis. For thirty-nine years, Jerome was employed at Honeywell until his retirement in 1992. He was a member of Prince of Peace in Brooklyn Park and Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Waite Park. For a time, he also served on the church board at Cross of Glory in Brooklyn Center.

Jerome was known for being a kind, gentle, compassionate man. In addition to his quiet strength, he was also quick witted and had a twinkle in his eye. He liked to make up stories and songs. Jerome was a humble man who was a good problem solver and able to fix anything. Some of his hobbies included hunting, fishing, and traveling; he loved making wine, and being in the woods maple syruping. Jerome's greatest joy came from spending time with his family and friends.

Jerome is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Vera; daughter, Wendy (Bill) Dehkes of New Brighton; brothers and sisters, Lawrence (Ardith) Peterson of Foley, Waldon (Sandra) Peterson of Deer River, Wanda (Jim) Braun of Perham, Norma (Allen) Braun of Frazee, and Rodney (Diane) Peterson of Stone Lake, Wisconsin.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Jeffery in 2009, and brother, Donwin Peterson.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Face it Foundation or Place of Hope.
