Patricia L (Wilson) Peterson

August 7, 1942 ~ January 18, 2022 (age 79)


John 14: 1-6 KJV 

"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me."

Patricia L. Peterson, 79, of Erwin, a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, while she was surrounded by her family. She was born August 7th, 1942, to the late Hilyard and Mary Jane Wilson. She was a God-fearing woman and faithful servant of Jesus Christ. She will be greatly missed by her family and everyone who knew her. Her favorite thing to do was read her bible and share the love of the Lord with her family and friends.
