Services will be held for Vera L. Peters, 98, of Clinton, at 2 p.m. Monday at Cornerstone Church, 1900 Lexington Ave., in Clinton.
She died Monday, July 15, 2019, in Clinton.
Peters was born April 10, 1921, to Dona Austin Lackey and Frank Jackson King in Cement. After living in Cheyenne, where her father died, the family later moved to the Dempsey-Meadow-brook community where she attended a two-room school and graduated from Reydon High School in 1938.
In 1939 she married Jodie L. Peters. In 1953 they left the farm and moved to Elk City, and then in 1960 moved to Clinton.
She was an active member of the Nazarene Church in Cheyenne, Elk City and Clinton. She was involved in children’s and music ministries, and whatever needed to be done in the church, including cleaning and redecorating parsonages. In later years she attended and supported the Cornerstone Church of God while health permitted.
When her children were older she worked at Brooks Fabric Store, as a cook at Clinton Junior High, and as the Nance Elementary School secretary.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; two sisters, Sula King Pennington Anderson and Rosa King Howell Heard; and a son-in-law, W. R. Bob Gosdin.
She is survived by her brother, Franklin J. King and family of Harrison, Tenn.; two daughters, Jonita Hall and husband George of Oklahoma City, and Dana Osborn and husband Terry of Clinton; two grandchildren, Chad Kinder and wife Gayla of Arapaho, and Kasey Barton and husband Brandon of Weatherford; a step-grandson, Andrew Hall and wife Mary Helen of Dallas, Texas; two step-granddaughters, Angela Tucker and family, and Tara Witherspoon and family, all of Yukon; six great-grandchildren, Natalie and Carson Kinder, Benjamin and Hannah Badgett, Mary Isabel Hall and Morgan Barton; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
The family has suggested that memorial donations may be made in Peters’ name to Cornerstone Church or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
