Born in Phelps Wisconsin to James and Anna Strong. She was their 14th child and the only to be born in a hospital. Raised on a farm. Her mother passed when she was 11 years old. She came to St. Paul Minnesota to live with her aunt and uncle. Working as a waitress at a coffee shop she met George T. Peterson. They were married and his work brought them all over the country. They had 7 children. Steven, Barbie, George, Jeffrey, Lisa, Douglas and Donald. They settled back in Minnesota. She worked many different places. Her last job was at Action Plastics as a federal inspector. She retired and lived in Zimmerman Minnesota. She loved to knit and she made many wonderful hats and mittens and blankets. She donated many to Sister Mary's Place in Minneapolis. She spent alot of time looking after her grandchildren. They all loved spending time with their Gramma. 16 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
When mom needed a bit more help she moved to Fremont Village where she could not have been happier or better cared for. She would often say "if you can't live at your home, Fremont Village is the next best thing". At 90 years old she was happy and content with the life she lived.
Friday, January 19, 2024, she passed away peacefully with her family gathered around her, singing her favorite song Amazing Grace.
She will be sadly missed. Her laughter, quick wit humor, hugs and her ability to listen and give advice that can only come from someone that has truly lived 90 years.
