1942 - 2007

Nancy Peters.jpgOn May 24, 2007 with her family at her side, Nancy Peters, aged 64 went to her eternal rest after a courageous battle with cancer.

Mom was born on September 9, 1942 in Morden, MB to William and Elsie Neufeld, and was raised in Morden.  She was the oldest of eight children.  She was baptized upon confession of her faith on an August afternoon while in her teens at a farm pond by Morden.  She met her sweetheart Ben D. Peters and they married on May 5, 1962.

Mom has always been active at church as long as we can remember, teaching Sunday School, serving on committees, and helping to decorate the church.  Her love for children made her a great teacher and an awesome grandma.  Playing soccer in the basement was a favorite.   Mom’s personality shone through in her lovingly tended flower beds, her knack for catching the biggest fish and her wall to wall library of books.  She continued her love of learning from books till the end. In her spare time you could catch her taking pictures of flowers, trees, birds, tiny red frogs, all things God created beautiful.

She was a devoted wife and mother, always going the extra mile for her children and husband.  Lending an ear on the phone for advice was something we relied on.  Family and friends were her priority and passion, and her grandchildren gave her much pride and joy.  The life lessons she taught us will never be forgotten.  Thank you mom for your prayers past and future, we love you.

Nancy was predeceased by her sister-in-law, Helen Hiebert (1964); nephew, Gordon Rempel (1970) and her niece, Shannon Dyck (2003).

Mom leaves to mourn her dear husband, Ben D. Peters of Roseisle, one son, Danny and Dorothy Peters (Jordan, Benjamin, Alexander) and three daughters, Heather Wilson (Christopher, Shawn), Lisa and Grant Braun and Christine Peters (Jesse, Sara).  Nancy is also remembered by her parents, William and Elsie Neufeld, and her sisters and brothers, Constance Armour, John Neufeld and Jen MacKey, Linda and Ken Nicol, Lorna and Hank Boschman, Tim Neufeld, Raymond and Dawn Neufeld and Sara Neufeld; the Peters family and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Funeral service was held on Tuesday May 29, 2007 at the Westside Community Church with Pastor Randall Krahn officiating.  Interment followed at the Winkler Cemetery.

As a family, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the medical staff at BTHC for the care, compassion, and dignity mom was given.  Also, thank you to the family and many friends for your prayers, visits, acts of kindness, and comforting words.  They will not be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Nancy’s memory to Sunshine Fund Manitoba Camping Association (Winkler Bible Camp) 302-960 Portage Ave. Winnipeg, MB R3G 0R4.

Dryberry will only be a shadow of the magnificence of the city of Heaven that awaits us.  “We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  2 Corinthians 4:18
