Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Wednesday, 2 May 1956:  In Memoriam - Mrs. Augustus Peters - It was with a feeling of sadness and regret that the people of St. Charles learned of the death of Mrs. Augustus Peters, which occurred in the Charlottetown Hospital, after a brief illness, on March 6th, 1956.  In her passing the community has lost one who constantly gave unstintingly to the advancement of measure for the general improvement of home, school and parish.  The deceased was endowed with a cordial and friendly disposition which earned for her a host of friends who enjoyed her hospitality on so many occasions.  Although greatly missed in the community, her real loss is most keenly felt in her home where her family are bereft of her deep love and sincere affection which only the passing of time can assuage.  There are left to mourn besides her sorrowing husband, three sons, Herbert and Stephen of Hamilton, Ont.; Louis at home and seven daughters, Lillian, Mrs. Lorne Peters of Souris; Frances, Mrs. Adrian Peters of St. Charles; Pauline, Mrs. Daniel MacDonald of South Lake; Mildred, Mrs. Walter MacDonald of Hamilton, Ont.; Alice, Mrs. Jordie MacDonald of Hamilton, Ont.; Patricia and Doreen at home.  Left to mourn also are her 22 grandchildren.  The funeral which was held to St. Charles Church was very largely attended.  Requiem Mass was celebrated by her Pastor, Rev.
