Angelina Pitre:  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.
