Lois Pauline (Clark) Peterson

Once upon a time, specifically on Nov. 30, 1926, a little girl was born to the Clark family of Half Rock, Missouri. Her name was Lois Pauline Clark, and she was the youngest of 10 children. Growing up on the farm, she had many wonderful adventures. While the men were away during WWII, Lois moved to Tucson, Arizona where she worked at the post office and shared lots of laughs with her three nieces.

After the war, she moved on to Aberdeen, Washington in her early 20s, where she eventually met Henry “Hank” Peterson. They fell in love and on Jan. 3, 1948, they married in a small ceremony. The young couple welcomed a baby girl, Linda, in 1949. Four years later, they welcomed a second daughter, Joan. They were happy with their two daughters and their little house on Morgan Street for many years.

As the years went on, and the girls grew up, life changed. Linda married in 1969 and had a son, Ulrich Brasche III in 1972 and a daughter, Lindella Brasche in 1977. Joan married in 1971 and had a daughter, Darlena Davis, the same year.

Sadly, Hank passed away in 1997 and her oldest daughter, Linda passed in 2016. But great-grandsons, Ulrich Brasche IV and Jared Eaton were born in 1999, with twin great grandsons, Jayce and Jax Eaton coming in 2002.

The little house on Morgan Street had many happy memories for Lois and her family, and when she got older and couldn’t live there anymore, she always talked about going home. At 93 years young, on Oct. 4, 2020, she was finally able to join Hank and go back home.
