Our loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Tina Peters passed away peacefully on Friday, July 9th, 2010 at the age of 81 years.
Tina was born September 2, 1928 to John and Annie Dyck in Cabri, Saskatchewan. She was the eldest of seven children. In 1944, at the age of 15, Tina along with her family moved to BC., settling on Ford Road in Sardis. A few years later she met and married Corney Peters and they settled in the Chilliwack area where they raised their 3 children. After becoming “empty nesters” they enjoyed volunteering and traveling with family and friends. Her greatest joy was her family and she enjoyed preparing meals for them and sending them home with lots of leftovers.
Corney & Tina celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in November, 1997 and after failing health, Corney passed away in March 1998 which left a big hole in Tina’s life. She continued with her volunteering at the MCC Thrift Shop and quilting with the Eden Quilters.
In late 2009, Tina was diagnosed with cancer and after deteriorating health, moved into Cascade Hospice on June 17th, 2010 where she passed away on Friday, July 9, 2010 with her 3 children by her side.
