Joyce D. Peterson
October 9, 1928 ~ November 27, 2017 (age 89)

Joyce D. Peterson, age 89, of Albert City, Iowa, went to meet her Lord and Savior on November 27, 2017, at the Pleasant View Home in Albert City.

Joyce Delores Nordlund, daughter of Sigfried and Mable (Anderson) Nordlund, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on October 9, 1928. At an early age, she moved with her family to Albert City, where she lived her youth and received her education. After graduating from Albert City High School, she attended Beauty School in Des Moines.

Joyce married Maurice Peterson on March 19, 1949, at the Evangelical Covenant Church in Albert City. Subsequently, the Lord blessed them with four sons: Lloyd, Daniel, Raymond, and Gordon. Joyce and Maurice spent their entire married life in Albert City where Joyce had a beauty shop for two years. From 1968 to 1975, she continued to operate her beauty shop from home. Often providing much needed help to Maurice and the boys on the farm, Joyce would, also, be doing field work, hauling and unloading grain wagons, and working with livestock along with many other farm related chores.

While a teenager, Joyce committed her life to her Lord Jesus while attending a Billy Graham crusade. As an active member of the Evangelical Covenant Church, she enjoyed expressing her musical gift as a devoted pianist for the choir and congregation for many, many years. A member of the Covenant Women’s group as well as several committees, she, also, served on the Church Board. In addition, she raised a beautiful garden of fresh vegetables and assorted flowers each year and enjoyed her own riding lawn mower.

Joyce, always, had a smile to share and a magnetic personality, which naturally drew those around her into lasting friendships. Moreover, she took considerable pride in making photo albums and scrapbooks for her family, and she enjoyed attending the many activities of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, always expressing her love and encouragement to each one along the way.

Joyce’s life is cherished and celebrated by her family which includes her husband, Maurice Peterson, of Albert City, Iowa; her sons: Lloyd (Nancy) Peterson, of Cleghorn, Iowa, Daniel (Nan) Peterson, of Ventura, Iowa, and Raymond and Gordon (Donna) Peterson, all of Clear Lake, Iowa; her grandchildren: Alicia (Justin) Anderson; Bethany (Andrew) Monson; and Jason (Megan), Kimberly, Kristi, Mark, Matthew (Nicole), Ross (Kristen), Seth (Evie), and Tyler (Beka) Peterson; fourteen great grandchildren; and a sister, Izetta Peterson, of Pocahontas, Iowa; along with other extended family members and many friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Roland; and her sister, Vivian.

Blessed be the memory of Joyce Delores Peterson.
