Cleo Peterson

Cleo Peterson is being honored at her 90th birthday celebration during an open house for family and friends at the Eagle View Townhomes club house, 988 South Falcon View Terrace, in Richfield, Saturday, Sept. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Cleo was born Sept. 6, 1929, in Bellingham, Washington, to Herbert and Viola Siewert. She married Dee Peterson in Oakland, California, April 7, 1954. They had their only child, Susan, the following year. Shortly after that they moved to Glenwood as a family and later settled in Richfield.

Cleo worked the majority of her career for Christy’s Market, later known as Dove’s, as a cashier and bookkeeper. She also worked as a waitress at JB’s Restaurant. Cleo has always been very active in the community and volunteering. She was a pink lady at Sevier Valley Hospital where she provided care for patients, served various roles as an active member with our local VFW post and also volunteered her time reading with students at Ashman Elementary school for many years.

Her sweetheart has passed, on but the rest of her family all reside near her in Sevier county, including children, Susan Hatch and Dan Hatch; grandchildren, Mike Wilbur and Kim (Jesse) Washburn; and great-grandchildren, Kambree and Brogan Washburn.
