Lorene J. Peterson, 8-18-64 to 6-18-21

It is with a heavy heart, our beloved sister, mother, daughter, aunt, and grammies, has passed onto the next chapter of her journey.

She will be remembered for her wit, charm, loving, fun, and crazy cat lady personality. Lori was the most independent, self-sufficient person. She worked on her own cars and would attempt anything herself. She always paid, and didn’t need a man, she could do it herself. Being able to do it herself was her life motto.

She loved her grandchildren deeply. She enjoyed the holidays, especially Halloween, always making the best, most creative costumes. She was an avid animal lover and loved her fur babies, especially Scooby, Marley, and Bluick.

Lori is survived by her daughter Kayelei Redding (Dustin), sister Teresa Land (Brent), brothers Ryan Peterson, Jeff Peterson (Juanita), Jim Peterson (Amy), Joel Redding, Hailey Minkner, Jaivin Redding, bonus grandson Benjamin Morrison, and Jakobi Redding-Morrison, and great granddaughter Zaia Mae.

She is preceded in death by her mother Virginia Lee Peterson (Manley) and Father Roy Allen Peterson.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Legacy Cremation and Funeral Service – Anderson on Thursday July 1, 2021 from 1-3pm with a procession following to Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Madison County Humane Society in memory of Lorene.

  2. Rest in peace my dear friend. I have so many fond memories with you. I know we did not see each other very much after High School but when we ran into each other we could talk forever. Thinking of you and your family.

  3. She will live in our heart and memories forever! Love and and strength to all of you!

    • My dearest niece… You’re in our thoughts and prayers and I love you dearly. Your mom always had a smile for me as I did her.
      I know the feeling of the lost of a mom, but we all grieve differently. Keep all the good memories close in your heart for there she’ll always remain.
      We love you so much 🤗😍
      Auntie Naomi & Abrom Redding family❣️
      God will never leave or forsake you… He’s always there!!

  4. I love you so much mommy, my heart is in a million pieces and the only glue is the love of your beautiful grandchildren. You will live on through me and the love you have given me through our lifetime together. I will never stop missing you!

  5. You were the reason I moved from my parents home at the age of 22. We didn’t really know each other but knew of each other. It wasn’t until our few months of living together that I got to know you, I got to know your heart. You were so excited about having a baby and I was excited to meet my niece. Thank you for allowing me to share in your journey to Motherhood, the friendship that came so easily and the unconditional love. You’ve left us to soon, that’s for sure, but you will live on in my heart through your beautiful daughter and grand babies. I will keep our many text messages for as long as I have a cell phone and computer! Rest Well Beautiful
