Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Monday, 2 August 1926:  In Memoriam - Mr. Stephen Peters - The community of New Glasgow, P.E.I., was saddened on Tuesday evening, July 20th, on hearing of the death of Stephen Peters, one of the oldest and most respected residents of that place.  Although the deceased had reached the advanced age of 72 years he remained active and took a keen interest in the welfare of his family and friends until a few days before his death when he met with an accident which proved fatal.  During his illness he was attended by his pastor, the Rev. Wm. V. MacDonald and fortified by the rites of the Holy Catholic Church of which he was a devoted member, he passed away fully resigned to God's holy will.  His memory will long be cherished not only in his home where he was a devoted husband and father but by his numerous friends and neighbors.  The funeral took place on Thursday morning, July 22nd, to Hope River Church and was largely attended.  The Requiem High Mass was celebrated by Rev. F. X. Gallant, brother of Mrs. Peters, after which all that was mortal of a good and noble man was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery to await a glorious resurrection.  Besides a sorrowing widow there are left to mourn six sons, namely, John, Joseph, Dennis, Fred, Paul and Eugene also three daughters, Mrs. Joseph Gauthier, Mrs. Robert Gallant and Rose at home.  The pallbearers were Joseph Gallant, Matthew LeClair, Joseph Rogers, Thomas Power, Joseph Gallant and Tenis Pineau.  Requiescat in pace.
