Obituary for Mary Alice Peters

PEORIA- Mary Alice Peters, 80, of Peoria, passed away the morning of Sunday, October 14th, 2018 surrounded by the love of her family.

Mary was born on July 27, 1938, to Cyriel and Adelina Verbeke. She was the youngest of three children. Mary graduated from Academy of our Lady in Peoria in 1956.

Mary, along with her husband Eugene, were avid winter travelers to Destin, Florida and Biloxi, Mississippi for their favorite pastime- golf. Mary enjoyed baking, playing Bridge, dancing to “Fiddler on the Roof,” and most of all, her family.

Mary was happiest being surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and extended family. Whether it was a holiday party, birthdays, weddings, or lunch with a grandchild, Mary loved to entertain and spend time with those closest to her.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, Daniel Verbeke.

Mary is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Eugene A. Peters, of Peoria. She is also survived by her sister, Patricia Johnson, of Dunlap, her children, Renee Fields and Connie (Patrick) Welch, and her stepchildren, Jeanine (Kregg) Wiggins, Craig (Diane) Peters, Janelle (Tam) Reihm, and Joe (Dawn) Peters. She is also survived by fourteen grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

The visitation will be held at Wright & Salmon Mortuary on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 from 5-7 p.m. A funeral mass will be held at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church on Thursday, October 18th, 2018 at 10 a.m., with visitation 30 minutes prior. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Arthritis Foundation.
