Yvonne “Vonnie” Peterson, age 59, of Black River Falls, WI passed away November 16, 2021 at Mayo Health Systems in La Crosse, WI. She was born on June 29, 1962 to John and Gloria Curran in Meridian, Mississippi. On November 26, 1982 she married Dale L. Peterson in La Crosse. Together they had 3 children, Lucas, Maya and Jon.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to many. She loved anything to do with the farm, her kids, the Green Bay Packers and especially her grandson Beau. She always had an opinion and it was always going to be heard, even if you didn’t want it. But still, she was loved by so many in the community and in her family. If you knew her, she was always sitting on her porch in the summer and would be watching the Packers in the fall. In between those times she was actively involved in the fair, dairy committee, and watching her grandson.
Survivors of Vonnie include her husband, Dale Peterson; children, Luke (Amy) Peterson and Maya (Nate) Peterson; grandson, Beau Peterson; parents, John (Gloria) Curran; siblings, Lori (Don) Olson, Brue (Sue) Curran, Chris (Mary) Curran, and Tim Curran; mother-in-law, Charlotte Peterson; brother and sisters-in-law, Steve (Kathleen) Peterson, Mike (Kay) Peterson, Russell Peterson, James (Tammie) Peterson, Jeanne (Steve) Calhoun, Joel (Joy) Peterson, Dan (Katie) Peterson; and many nieces nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her son, Jon Peterson; and her father-in-law, Eugene Peterson.
Celebration of Life for Vonnie will be held on December 4th, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Community Room in the Village Building in Taylor.
