Obituary:  Guardian (PEI), Monday, 10 November 1958:  In Memoriam - Joseph L. Peters - The community of North Rustico was saddened to learn of the sudden passing from a heart attack early Thursday morning, October 23, 1958, of one of its most highly respected citizens in the person of Joseph L. Peters.  Born at North Rustico the late Mr. Peters lived there all his life.  He was 76 years of age and although retired from active work he enjoyed comparatively good health, took a keen interest in community affairs and was very proud of the economic advancement his native village had made during his lifetime.  Of a kindly disposition he was a general favourite with young and old alike and he will be greatly missed by a wide circle of friends.  In 1930 the late Mr. Peters was bereaved by the loss of his wife (formerly Angelina Peters).  There are left to mourn his passing, four sons and three daughters, namely Marshall, Midgell; (Rose) Mrs. Arthur Journeau; Ella and Austin all on Montreal, P.Q., (Flora) Mrs. Ray Johan, Moncton, N.B., Stephen and Gussie, North Rustico.  A daughter, (Louise) Mrs. Lawrence Gallant; and a son Lawrence predeceased their father.  Twenty one grandchildren and one great-grandchild also survive.  His funeral took place on Monday morning October 27th from his late residence to Stella Maris Church.  Requiem Mass was sung by the Pastor, Rev. Father Ayres.  His remains were laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery, there to wait a glorious resurrection, when Christ shall say to his faithful servants: "Come ye blessed of My Father, possess the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."  The pallbearers were: Archibald Hartlin, Joseph S. Gallant, Wilfred Doucette, Ferdinand LeClair, Marshall Gallant, Ferdinand Doucette.  May his soul rest in peace.

Obituary:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Saturday, 24 January 1931:  In Memoriam - Mrs. Joseph Peters - On December 8th, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a very sad death occurred at the Charlottetown Hospital, when Mrs. Joseph Peters of North Rustico was called to her eternal reward.  Under all circumstances death is sad; it is particularly so when the mother of a young family, in the prime of her young womanhood is taken off after a brief illness of only a few hours, leaving behind her, a disconsolate husband and a large family of small and well-beloved children.  But such is Nature's decree; and we must, one and all, in humility and submission, bow to the hand of Him who is all love and knows best.  The deceased who was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Peters, was born thirty-eight years ago at Hope River where she resided until her marriage to Mr. Joseph Peters of North Rustico.  In her new home, her gentle, kindly, hospitable nature, her sunny and amiable disposition, her deep devotion to her husband and family endeared her to a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.  She was a splendid type of loving wife and devoted mother, ever ready to sacrifice herself to lighten the burden and cares of her family and friends.  She was always a willing worker in every activity that tended to the welfare of the community in which she lived.  She will be much missed by her neighbors and friends and her husband and children above all, will ever remember her kindly ministrations, her ever anxious care, and her gentle and cheering voice, now stilled forever.  Her funeral was held from her late residence at North Rustico, to St. Augustine Church, on December 9th.  Requiem High Mass was celebrated by her pastor, Mgr. Jean Chaisson, D.D., who also pronounced the last sad rites at the grave.  The pall bearers were: Messrs. Michael Doyle, Edmund Gallant, Karl Binns, Henry Peters, Marshall Gallant and Luke Gallant.  Besides the sorrowing husband and the following children: Rose, Louise, Floradele, Ella May, Martial, Lawrence, Austin, Stephen, Augustine, there are left to mourn, her aged mother, three sisters, Mrs. Joseph Peters, and Mrs. Luke Gallant, of Charlottetown; Mrs. A. E. Doucette, Rusticoville; and two brothers, Augustine Peters, Cape Traverse, and James Peters, of Charlottetown.  Three children have predeceased her.  Mass cards were received from:- The family, her mother, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Peters, Mr. and Mrs. John Gallant, Mrs. Wm. Deagan and family, Mr. and Mrs. Karl Binns, Mr. and Mrs. James Peters, Helen Doucette, Peter and Helen McElmeel, Mamie Trainor, Mr. and Mrs. Howatt, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Peters and family, Mr. and Mrs. Luke Gallant, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Doucette, and family, Mr. Augustine Peters, Mr. and Mrs. James Peters and family.  Spiritual Bouquets:- Mr. and Mrs. John Doiron.  Crescent:- Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus Pineau.  Messages of Sympathy:- Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Callaghan, Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. R. T. White, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Doiron, Boston; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bulgar, Hope River; Mrs. Theophilus Doucette, Medford, Mass.; Miss Alice Boyce, Charlottetown; Miss Delma Gauthier, North Rustico; Mrs. F.
