Mary Peterson was born on March 12, 1952 in Amery, WI, the daughter of Delmer “Buster” & Viola (Peterson) Johnson. She grew up in Clear Lake, WI, was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church there and graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1970. After graduation, Mary became a beautician and worked in North St. Paul, MN for several years. On October 18, 1980, she was married to Jerry M. Peterson at First Lutheran Church in Clear Lake and together made their home in rural Amery. In 1988 they moved to live and work in Fond du Lac, WI, for a couple years before they returned to Clear Lake. Mary was employed for many years as an aid for the Clear Lake School District, retiring in 2015. She enjoyed the out doors, fishing and riding UTV’s up north. Mary and Jerry loved camping at Haps Landing in Danbury, WI for over 25 years and they spent the past few years wintering in Panama City Beach, Florida. She was an active member of First Lutheran Church in Clear Lake and later at Elim Lutheran in rural Amery. Mary will be sorely missed by her husband, family, and many friends.
