Ione Peters

Peters, Ione Lucille (Harder)

Ione Lucille Peters (Harder), 93, of Stevens Point, died on November 8.

Survivors include her four sons, James Peters (Lesley), Ronald Peters (Sherry), Thomas Peters (Jan) and Robert Peters (Maria); eight grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Gerald Harder.

Ione was predeceased by her brother, Eugene Harder and her former husband, Cyril Peters, the father of her children.

The only daughter of Martha (Kutella) and Harold Harder, Ione was life-long resident of Stevens Point and a fourth generation Portage County resident.

Ione didn't let age define her and although she reached her 90s, she was still an active and independent woman who took great pride in her appearance and dressed fashionably.

She enjoyed shopping, weekly card parties with her girlfriends that first began in the 1950s, and winter trips to Florida.

Funeral services are private.
