She was preceded in death by husbands Tony Foster and Ed Wade; her daughter Anne Peterson Riley and son Mark Peterson. Margie is survived by her son Doyle Peterson, wife Pamela, and Mark’s widow Dolores Peterson as well as and 6 Grandchildren and 11 Great-grandchildren: Blaine Peterson, his wife Jenny and daughter Genevie; Corby Peterson, his wife Lauren and daughters Libby, Belle, and Blaire; Britt Peterson, his wife Kelly, their children Blake, Ellie, Campbell, Graham and Tatum; Marshall Peterson, his wife Michelle and children Miles and Molly; Tony Peterson and Annalisa Peterson.
