She was predeceased by siblings: Ralph Peterson, Ruby Peterson Towery, Juanita Peterson Martin, Bob Peterson, Eugene Peterson, and Ann Peterson Lawter. She is survived by her loving husband, David J.

She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. A longtime member of St. Andrews Baptist Church, Columbia, SC, "Miss Betty" enjoyed serving the LORD in the nursery, at Wednesday night suppers, in the Joy Singers Choir, and on many mission trips with the SABC youth, and to Honduras with her husband and sons. She was considered a second mother to many. She also volunteered for many years with Camp Kemo, Habitat for Humanity, Columbia Metro Baptist Food Pantry, and Camp Discovery.

She loved to travel, cook, garden, and shower love and affection on her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and church family. She will be missed by many.
