With heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Louise Peterson (nee Brandson) at the age of 77. She was born in Stauffer Alberta, on the farm, where she developed a strong love of animals and a passion for gardening. She married Rolf Peterson; together they farmed and owned a mink ranch in the Bradner, B.C. area.
After selling the farm, she worked as a care aide for home support in Abbotsford. She had a generous heart and loved nothing better than looking after anyone who was in need. Survived by her soulmate and husband of 59 years, Rolf Peterson, daughters Laurie Gear (Ross) and Roberta Fenuick (Ron), sons Tom Peterson (Brenda) and Tim Peterson (Haley), brothers Leonard Brandson (Linda) and Ellery Brandson (Pat), brothers-in-law Glenn Kneiper and Jim Peterson, sister-in-law Ramona Peterson, fifteen grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her parents Joe and Lula Brandson, in-laws Fritz and Julia Peterson, sister Phylis Kneiper, sister-in-law Margaret Brandson, infant brother Johan Brandson, brother-in-law Les Peterson, and sister-in-law Fern Peterson.
Per her request, there will be no funeral service. Her wish was to be cremated and internment at a later time at Raven Cemetery. Family requests no flowers, donations to a charity of your choice in her honour would be appreciated.
