Lucy Ann Peterson, 65, of Hurricane passed away on Aug. 8, 2017, after a year-and-a-half battle with cancer.
Lucy was born on March 14, 1952, in Ogden to Leland and Inga Jean Jackson (Johnson). She married her high school sweetheart, John G. Peterson, in the Salt Lake temple on June 7, 1971.
Lucy was raised in Kearns and attended Kearns High School.
She has been sewing since she could reach the pedal and she could make anything – suits, dresses, princess gowns, Full Metal Alchemist cosplay and any costume. She always had music in her heart, she led several choirs but her favorite was the primary choir and singing camp songs with family or with the young women over the years. She was an avid reader, she read thousands of books in her lifetime. She would help anybody with anything at any time and gave 110 percent in everything she did. She loved to work with her hands and her crafting had no limits; sewing, cooking, stained glass, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, cards and Christmas stockings to name a few. She loved sharing her talents and found joy in making things for others.
John and Lucy were best friends. They spent as much time as they could driving the back roads and the off roads to see some of the most fascinating creations on Earth. All along the way she worked on her crafts and ornaments.
Lucy was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved the Savior and all those she served with. She served in Young Women, Primary, Music, Activity Days and Scouting. Lucy loved everyone she met like family and served with all of her heart. She was the epitome of charity and Christlike love.
Lucy is survived by her children, John (Toni), Samuel, Steven (Robyn), Dawn (Jeff), Dean and her 11 grandchildren. Brother, Leland (Sherrie), Sister, Laura (Gary), brother-in-law, Bill, sisters-in-law, Tamyra and Sherry.
