Donald Peters obituary

Donald “Don” Arthur Peters was born in Weaver, Minn., at home to Herman and Emma Peters.  Don passed away at Gundersen St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Wabasha, on October 7, 2020.  He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Robert Peters; and one sister Norma Schmit.
Remaining to cherish his memories are his wife of 62 years, Betty; five daughters:  Cindy (Pete) Gosse, Pat Marx, Anne Arens, Donna Kreye, and Jane (Joe) Roemer; 14 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; two sisters; a brother; nieces; nephews; and many friends.
Don married Betty Nelson in March of 1957. Don and Betty lived on a farm in Wabasha, Minn., for most of their married years. Together they raised five daughters and hundreds of sheep and lambs.  Don enjoyed everything about “country living”.  Anyone who knew Don, knew of his love for hunting, fishing, and the “whole outdoors”.   His trophy room was one of his prized possessions. Don was a member of Pepin Hill Farmers Club for many years, and loved to play cards. It was even better if he could win the game. He thoroughly enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  We will always remember his art for “telling stories”, humored by his version.
Many people will remember Don as their trusted insurance agent. He owned his own business as an independent insurance agent for 40 years. He was cherished by his customers, some of whom became close friends.
Don was a member of Kellogg United Methodist Church. A private service will be held at Kellogg United Methodist Church. Memorials may be sent to Kellogg United Methodist Church in honor of Don. Please mail memorials to:  Peace United Methodist Church, 52497 275th St., Elgin, MN 55932. Please, no flowers.
