Esther Susan Peters (nee Trippel)

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Esther Susan Peters on March 5, 2012 at Nelson Jubilee Manor.

Esther was born November 23, 1927 in Rosthern, Sask., the youngest of ten children. She moved to Trail in her teens where she met and married her husband Tennis (Ted) on December 2, 1947. They lived all their married life in Sunningdale and Casino where they raised their family. Mom moved to Fruitvale in 1996 to live with her son and daughter-in-law when Dad was placed in extended care.

She loved all animals, especially cats and was a member of the Trail Horsemen’s Society for many years. She was well known for her homemade bread and buns, was an avid gardener and enjoyed linedancing. She also never said no to a trip to Chewelah or Bonners Ferry.

Esther is predeceased by her husband Ted in 1998, she is survived by her daughter Joanne Mallett (Ed) son Jim (Faye) two grandchildren Stacey Dennis (Mike) and Jason, her brother Wilbur Trippel and four great grandchildren Alyssa and Aiden Dennis and Jaxon and Carson Peters as well as many and nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Fruitvale on Monday, July 9th at 10:00am followed immediately by an interment at Mountainview Cemetery in Rossland.

The famiy would like to take this time to thank Dr. E. McCoid for her years of special care and Dr. Janz and the staff of Nelson Jubilee Manor for their excellent care of Mom during her stay this past year. You truly are a remarkable group.
