October 27th our beloved mom and wife went to be with our Lord and Savior. She was born at home to Frank and Elsie Braddock in Reeder, ND, joining her brothers Cecil and Dale. At 18 she moved to Idaho and met the love of her life, Robert Peterson.
Married April 17, 1960, just before leaving for their honeymoon, her mom told her "wherever your husband's job takes him, you will go also". Taking this advice we moved to numerous areas in the summers to be with Dad while logging.
Tammy Lynn was born in 1961 and six years later Kari Ann arrived.
Mona was passionate about canning and making jelly, as well as creating afghans for family and friends. She was very involved with the Lutheran Church, Hospital Auxiliary and Idaho Women in Timber. She worked at Wheeler's Valley Pharmacy for 25 years. She adored her granddaughters Lauren and Marlee and her son-in-law Ed. Her two cats never left her side. Her kind, devoted husband would often bring one to visit while in the care center. We will all miss her joyful, giving heart.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, November 4th, at the Shepherd of the Mountains Church in Cascade.
