Mary Agnes Peters
MARY AGNES PETERS September 28, 1919 ~ July 4, 2018 Mary Agnes Peters, 98, formerly of Camas, WA, passed away on July 4, 2018 in Vancouver, WA. She was born to Sterling and Agnes Borquist on Sept. 28, 1919, in Portland, OR. Her early years were spent in Helix, OR. Mary later attended Girls' Poly Tech in Portland, which provided her with a number of skills she used designing clothes for her six daughters (including wedding dresses and a variety of unique costumes). Mary married Joe Peters on May 26, 1941. They were married 50 years before Joe passed away. They enjoyed many good times with dear friends and Mary was often known as quite the prankster. Above all, Mary was a woman of mercy and compassion who touched many lives. And she was never without a smile! Mary is survived by her 6 daughters, Kay Peters of Seattle, Margie Lehto of Battle Ground, Gail Cerenzia of Wenatchee, Barb Brown of Darby, Montana, Linda (Skweak) Henneman of Valier, Montana, and Yvonne (Boo) Stevens of Washougal. Mary had 14 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandchildren. Services pending until later September. A notice will be posted prior to the service date.
