Erma Lene Peeters

Our loving, wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Erma Lene Peeters from Reedley, CA , passed away peacefully at the age of 83 on Monday, March 2, 2021.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 8, 2021 at 9:30am at Sterling & Smith Funeral home in Dinuba, CA – burial services at Smith Mountain cemetery will follow at 12pm.

Erma was born on February 13, 1938 in Arkansas to Troy and Thelma Mize who settled in Dinuba, CA where she met her husband Richard Peeters. They briefly moved to his home state of Wisconsin before settling in Redwood City, CA in 1968.

Erma loved her family more than anything and devoted her life to ensure their happiness. She loved camping, being outdoors, and travelling with her husband across the country with their fifth wheel trailer.

Erma valued the simple things like cooking during the holidays for her family, reading a good book, or a good game of Rummy with her grandchildren. As long as she had a good country western song to dance too, and maybe a glass of wine, she would be her happiest.

Erma was pre-deceased by her parents, Troy and Thelma Mize of Dinuba, CA, and her brother Arbert Mize of Arkansas.

Erma leaves behind her loving husband of nearly 60 years, Richard Peeters and 5 children, sons: Michael Peeters, Douglas Peeters (daughter-in-law Margie Peeters), Brian Peeters (daughter in law Marie Ruth Peeters), Sheldon Peeters Sr. (daughterin law Cindy Peeters), and daughter, Lori Morlock. Erma also leaves behind her sister, Patsy Helm.

Her grand-children, Douglas Peeters, Jr. (wife Kristine), Richard Peeters (wife Kristen), Sheldon Peeters Jr. (wife Janette), Keith Peeters (wife Ruby), Cory Peeters (wife Hannah), Ricky Peeters, Austin Morlock, Ethan Morlock and Jacob Peeters.

Her great-grandchildren, Hannah Peeters, Raquel Peeters, Dylan Peeters, Kira Peeters, Nolan Peeters, Camilla Peeters, Nora Peeters, Dahlila Peeters, and Sadie Peeters.
