Peterson, Juanita R.

April 9, 1929 — November 4, 2020

Juanita Rosemarie Peterson, 91, passed away peacefully on November 4, 2020.

Juanita (Rose) Peterson is survived by her sister-in-law, Dorothy Duncan; her five children, Barry Peterson (Sue), Diane Whitaker (Joe), Randy Peterson, Dennis Peterson and Brian Peterson (Linda); 12 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and a great-great grandson; as well as many nieces and nephews. Preceding Rose in death are her husband, Dale D. Peterson, her parents and two brothers.

Juanita Rose was often called by either name most of her life. She was named Juanita after a romantic Spanish song from 1929, her birth year. Rose lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and IRS worker. With her beautiful, long fingers, she loved playing the piano. At an early age of five, she performed in a concert at the Kansas City Music Hall. She continued sharing music and song with family for more than eight decades. Rose had a passion for houseplants and flower gardening with several cottage gardens of every color imaginable. Rose enjoyed puzzles, games, cards and crossword puzzles, and her love of researching genealogy added to her full life.

Most of all, Rose loved her large family and enjoyed being surrounded by the smiles and laughter of fun times. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
