Elizabeth Hope Peterman, 63, of Cape Girardeau died Sunday, Nov. 29, 2009, at her home.
She was born Nov. 24, 1946, in San Diego, to Larry and Pauline Davis. She married Neal Frederic Peterman on June 21, 1969. They happily celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this year.
She was a graduate of Central High School and earned a teaching degree from Southeast Missouri State University. She was a teacher at Central Junior High School. Hope loved teaching, and, above all, she loved her students. During her teaching career she was a mentor, friend and inspiration to many young people. But it was perhaps Hope's proudest accomplishment to be an outstanding mother and to raise her three children.
Survivors include her husband, Neal Peterman of Cape Girardeau; a daughter, Amanda Hope Peterman of Las Vegas; a son, Neal Lars Peterman of Cape Girardeau; daughter-in-law, Lesa Beth Peterman; her beautiful 5-month-old grandson, Lex Lawrence Peterman; a sister, Alison Dunstan of Memphis, Tenn.; and a niece, Margaret Dunstan of Memphis.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and a beloved daughter, Carrie Elizabeth Peterman.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Ford and Sons Mount Auburn Funeral Home.
The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Friday at the funeral home, with the Rev. Mark Anderson officiating. Burial will be in Cape County Memorial Park.
It is Hope's kind heart and loving ways that will forever live on in the hearts of her family and friends.
