Kathryn L. “Katie” Peters, 83, of Peoria, IL, died peacefully on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019, at her home, surrounded by her beloved family.

She was born May 15, 1936, in Galesburg, IL and raised in Elmwood, IL. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Christina Marie, her parents, William “Bill” and Anna (Johnson) Gibbs of Elmwood, IL, and her brother, William “Bill” Gibbs, of Peoria, IL.

Katie was a loving homemaker all of her life, raising her family with Bob in Peoria, IL. They retired to Red Cedar Lake, WI, returning to Peoria in 2017. She attended Elmwood high school, Western Illinois University, and Brown Business School. Katie worked as an executive secretary at Central Illinois Light Company in her early career and as a school secretary at Peoria District 150 Developmental Center, Rolling Acres. She was a member of the Itoo Society. Her greatest work and joy was dedicating her life as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Katie cherished spending time with family and friends.

Katie led a life of service to others and was a founding member of St. Vincent de Paul Parish where she enjoyed volunteering for many church and school-related activities including Eucharistic Ministry, teaching Sunday school and Women’s Guild activities. She had a deep and beautiful faith, as well as a special devotion to our Blessed Mother. Katie was a member of St Joseph’s Parish, Rice Lake, WI, participating in Adoration and supporting Catholic education. She and Bob enjoyed spending winter months in Orange Beach, AL, and summer months at the lake in Wisconsin. Most of all, she loved her family.
