Dear family,
On behalf of Dick and MaryLou Peters’ children, I’d like to extend my condolences in the loss of your mother and wife, Pat. From a very early age, I started hearing the names Pat and Barney and it continued for over 50 years! Mom and Dad LOVED spending time with both of you because you were such special people! Although there is sadness in your family, know that there is joy in heaven as my parents have reunited with your mom/wife!
Love, Dianne Peters Ebling

Barney and family,
Pat was a very special lady who endured much. I always enjoyed sitting next to her at the credit union dinners. She would smile and make me laugh. We even had some "inside jokes". I loved hearing her speak about her family and how much she loved all of them. Her face would light up when telling me about the little ones. I am so happy to have known her. She will definitely be missed! Who knows, Pat and Julian might even be playing Bingo and winning! My sincere condolences to you were a wonderful husband and caregiver! May God give you comfort and peace.
