Margaret Helen Peterson, age 81 of Stillwater
It is with great grief to announce that Margaret Peterson, 81, was tragically killed on Tuesday, April 25th, 2023 in a horrific accident outside of her home. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Ann Roettger, and daughter Jennifer Peterson.
She is survived by her only grandson Josh Pritchett; sister, Lucille Staberg; former husband, Gary (Janine), extended family and so many dear friends, with several dating back from Margaret's childhood; a blessing to all of them. Her life was a true testament to her faith and shared compassion without hesitation to others.
Most recently Margaret's grandson returned home to live with her and enjoy her Golden Years together, sadly that has been cut short just shy of 1 year.
Margaret was a community member of Stillwater, MN for 81 years and would recite history behind every house, apartment, or manor in her beloved hometown. She worked at NSP, Washington County as a County Clerk/Auditor, and for the past 20 years was a house/pet sitter, a job that she loved and, of course, the animals loved her too.
She was a wonderful cook and baker sharing her delicious cookies with everyone, whether you asked for them or not!
A celebration of life for Margaret will be held at 2PM, on Wednesday, May 31st, at Bradshaw Funeral Home (2800 Curve Crest Blvd.). Please come and share your favorite memories and stories. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
