Joseph Pitre:  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.
