Olive "Grace" Nora Peters, 93, of Kalkaska, passed away on May 26, 2017. She was born to the late Frank and Mary Kate (Jordan) Ewers on April 9, 1924 in Detroit.
Grace was a true matriarch and a ruler of the roost. She will be fondly remembered as a feisty fashionista whose smile, wit and spunky nature lit up a room.
Grace is survived by her children, Frank (Rita) Peters, Susanne (Gary) Derrigan, Richard Peters, Kathy Gillespie, Timothy Peters and Colleen Peters; 16 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and her beloved Ellie Mae.
She was preceded in death by her parents; seven siblings; her husband, Michael Peters, a World War II veteran; and son-in-law, Curtis Gillespie.
Visitation will be at the Kalkaska Funeral Home on Monday, May 29, 2017, from 4 to 8 p.m. A funeral Mass will take place at St. Mary of the Woods Catholic Church on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at 11 a.m., with final visitation beginning at 10 a.m. A luncheon will follow at the church.
Arrangements are entrusted to Kalkaska Funeral Home.
