Geraldine was a former member of the Ladies Elks, her Bunko Group and of bowling leagues. She was a very sweet, loving and caring person. She would do anything for her family that she loved very much. We will dearly miss her.

The Peterson family would like to thank Arborview Court for their commitment to excellence when it comes to the care of their residents. Also to Heartland Hospice for their great care of Geraldine.
Thanks for giving us the freedom and understanding to make our mistakes without judging. We love you! Thanks!
