Margaret “Peg” Louise Peterson passed away peacefully at Central Wyoming Hospice May 1, 2020 at the age of 72. Peg was born January 28, 1948 in Casper, Wyoming the eldest daughter of Jim and Mary (Kasper) Price.
Peg lived on the family ranch (Wolfe Creek area) and graduated from Natrona County High School in 1966. She was accepted into the Casper College Nursing School where she graduated in 1975 and began working at Natrona County Memorial Hospital (Wyoming Medical Center). She then transferred to Dr. Harlan Myers’ practice working with allergy and chemotherapy children for 35 years before retiring due to her declining health status. Nursing and children were her passion.
In 1971, she married Allen “Jim” Peterson on August 28, in Casper Wyoming. They would have shared their 49th wedding anniversary this year. Peg is survived by her husband, Jim, a daughter, Kari (Ben Pollock), 2 granddaughters, Harper and Kadin Pollock of Casper. Her brothers Jim (Peggy) Price of Bates Hole, John (Deb) of Casper. Her sisters Pat Price of Casper and Mary McNeal of Riverton and many other family members. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Judith Elder.
Peg was an amazing person. She was a tough lady suffering much pain in the last 20 years of her life. She loved gardening, dogs, chickens and spending time with her granddaughters. Even though she was wheelchair bound, she was always doing housework, cooking and making things better for all of her “kids”. She was and is one of the toughest people you’ve ever known and will be deeply missed.
