Mrs. Peters was born in Augusta to the late Nolan and Lilla Mae Eubanks. In addition to her husband she is preceded in death by her daughters, Mary Diane Krepps and Barbara Elaine Antley; brother, Nolan Eubanks, and sisters, Jewel Morgan and Mary Jones.
She was a godly woman who loved her family, home and church. Her childhood church home was Crawford Avenue Baptist where she was highly active; it has been said "she was there every time the church doors were open." Late in life she was a member of Open Door Baptist where she very much enjoyed the JOY Sunday School Class. Known for her mastery of the needle arts, especially crochet and cross stitch, one of her other hobbies was being an avid Atlanta Braves fan. She was a loving wife, mother, MeeMaw and GG. She will be greatly missed by her family who are happy to know that she is now in heaven with her memories restored.
The family wishes to give special thanks to the staff at her last home, Golden Living Center, most particularly Chrissy Napier.
