    It was a great pleasure working with Mrs. Peterson, who always told me to call her Miss Clarice. She was a very sweet, loving woman and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her family is one of a kind showing true testament to the type of woman she was. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Jennifer
