Obituary for Martha Peterson

Martha  Peterson
Martha Petersen, 73, of Vermillion, SD passed away Wednesday, September 27 at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD after a short illness with her family by her side.
Martha was born the fourth child on September 17, 1944 in Vermillion to Stanley and Viola (Olson) Peterson. She was baptized and confirmed in the Pleasant Valley Lutheran Church. Growing up on the farm she dearly loved, she attended school at the Westerville Country School and Wakonda High School.
In 2006, Martha moved to the Town Square apartments in Vermillion and made numerous friends while living there. Health issues overtook her kidneys, and for the past decade, she acquired a second family at the Dialysis Center at the Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. Some of her greatest joys came from her close relationships with her beloved nieces and nephews and other family members.
Throughout her life, she was the great source of family history and genealogy. She had a complete and flawless memory of family members and every family event, including birthdays, weddings, family picnics, funerals and anniversaries.
She is survived by two sisters; Laura Johnson of Platte, SD and Arlene (Tom) Ternes of Sturgis, SD, and three brothers; Sterling and John Peterson both of rural Wakonda, SD and Stanley Peterson of Vermillion. She is also survived by her beloved nieces and nephews: Lori Smith, Lynda (Mike) Belt, Mike (Dawn) Johnson, Mary (Tom) Espland, Paul (Julie) Peterson, Robert (Julie) Peterson, Rebecca (Jay) Skroch, Theresa (Dave) Gustafson, Merideth (Jeff) Hunoff, Chad (Stephanie) Peterson, Brandon Ternes, Sarah (Simon) Jamieson and Leah (Matt) Oxner.
Funeral services will be 1:00 PM Tuesday, October 3 at the Pleasant Valley Lutheran Church rural Vermillion, SD with visitation beginning one hour prior to the service at the church.
