Lucy Pauline Peters Feb. 9, 1948 – Sept. 10, 2011
Lucy Pauline Peters passed away in Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) in Anchorage, Alaska at 8:40am on September 10, 2011. She was 63 years old and died peacefully surrounded by family and brothers and sisters. Lucy Pauline Peters was the first daughter of Tommy L. Moses and Delores Maria Moses, her favorite uncle Chris Lauridsen, Jr.
Lucy married Stanley Peters and had two sons Frederick and Glen Peters; they lived in Boulder, Colorado, Holy Cross and Bethel, Alaska.
Lucy worked for the Alaska Commercial Company for 20 years at the Emmonak and Bethel branches as a cashier and supervisor for the clothing department. She also worked at the North Slope for a while.
Lucy never graduated from high school, but was very motivated to get a good education for herself and received her GED at Emmonak High School in May of 1997, and was very happy to get her GED.
Lucy was grandma, an excellent craft fur-sewer of beaded moosehide gloves and slippers for her own brothers and sisters and her family. She loved picking berries, cutting fish, and of course liked fiddle dancing the most, so, she goes to the fiddle festival in Fairbanks with her father, Tommy L. Moses. She sure loved to play bingo; Lucy had many friends wherever she went throughout many different Alaskan villages. She will be remembered as a good natured and down to earth woman.
Lucy in her later years had detected colon cancer and received treatment at Bethel and Anchorage at ANMC. Even she was sick, she had a great smile. Lucy was a lover of life and lived every moment of every day, until September 10, 2011. She was a Gal who always made you feel welcomed and loved. She was a great cook known for her great pies.
She is preceded in death by her brother Alfred Moses, her parents Tommy and Delores Moses, her mother-in-law Xenia Peters of Holy Cross.
Lucy leaves her family Frederick and Glen Peters, her brothers and sisters, Simon, John, Irene, Maria and Bernadette.
We thank the staff of ANMC at Anchorage, the doctors and nurses; we would like to thank Kwikpak Fisheries, LLC and Alaska Commercial Company. Quyana Cakneq to her relatives and friends that came to be with us at the time of our sorrow and loss.
