Dolly Peterson, 88, of Martinton, was granted the desire of her heart when God called her home on Saturday, August 21, 2021. She was the daughter of Wilmot and Jennie Luella Conklin.
Dolly and the love of her life, her husband Wayne, were life-long farmers.
She is survived by their children, Cindy (Dennis) Gray, Mike (Kay) Peterson, Vicki (Dean) Hartman, Mark (Charlotte) Peterson, and Linda (Mike) Spitler. Also surviving are 14 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; her sister and brother-in-law, Joann and Jack Jarvis; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Conklin, Kathy Peterson, Sr., Bernadita Peterson; and brother-in-law, Keith Tatro.
She was preceded in death by her husband, daughter Sherri, daughter-in-law Deb Peterson, grandson Nathaniel Gray, sisters Rose Kammann and Cora Coash, and brother Jack Conklin.
Dolly loved the Lord with her whole heart, soul and strength. She loved to read her Bible, and to tell most everyone she met about the unconditional love of her savior Jesus Christ.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Iroquois Memorial Hospice or the donor’s choice.
