**Mary A. O'Connor (Peters):  Grammie Peters was a most amazing cook!  I remember as a little girl waking every morning to fresh baked bread and rolls.  She was up at the crack of dawn (or earlier) baking away.  She loved to knit and make quilts.  I still have the last one she ever made! (it's packed away safely because it shows its been well used).  She was still baking away at 97 yrs old.  She passed away at 99, just 4 months before turning 100.   [contributed by great-granddaughter Kerri Arsenault]
