Berniece E Peterson

On September 9, 2022, just shy of her 97 birthday, Berniece Peterson passed peacefully from this life into her eternal life surrounded by her loved ones.

Beloved mother of 8 children, she was a lifetime resident of McHenry, a member of St Mary of the Assumption Church, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Illinois Bell Pioneers. 

Her unfailing love and devotion as a parent, grandparent, great grandparent and friend leaves behind a great void.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Glenn, her parents, and 7 siblings.  She is survived by her children Nancy Downes, Michael (Laura) Peterson, Michele Peterson, Sandra (Thomas) Sroka, Donna Rose, Diane Peterson, Jon (LeAnne) Peterson, Mark Peterson, 12 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and an abundance of nieces, nephews and their families.

Visitation will be held at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 1401 N Richmond Rd, McHenry, IL 60050, on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 from 11 AM to Noon with Mass to follow. Burial will be private. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to JourneyCare Hospice (Pepper Family Hospice Care Center, 405 Lake Zurich Road, Barrington, IL 60010).
