PETERSON
LIVINGSTON -- A celebration of life service for Catherine M. "Kay" Peterson will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, July 1, at the Escapees CARE Center in Livingston. Kay was born on Feb. 28, 1927 in Cambridge, Mass. Her given name was Catherine Melvina Cooper, but for most of her life she was known as Kay. At the early age of 7, Kay decided she wanted to be a nurse. She began working as a kitchen aide at the local hospital, advanced to a ward aide, and was accepted into the Cadet Nurse Corps program at age 17. She was the youngest in her class. During her last year of training, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis and sent to the county sanitarium. Friends there told her she would be there for years. She refused to believe them and was unwilling to let her goal go unattained. She was out in six months. Her doctor told her to forget about nursing, thinking it would be too strenuous, but she convinced the superintendent of nursing to allow her to attend half days. It took her longer, so she was unable to graduate with her class, but she received her diploma and then her R.N. license in 1949. She elected to work in a tuberculosis sanitarium after graduation, and a year later discovered her disease flared up again. She became a patient at the same place she had been working. She was there for over a year and, when she left, the doctor predicted she would die within five years. Kay married and had four children, but the marriage ended in divorce. She and her kids moved to Huntington Beach, Calif. and started a new life. In the early sixties, Kay met her second husband, Joe Peterson. Together they raised seven of their eight children, three of hers and four of his. At age 43, they sold their four-bedroom house and moved into a 26-foot trailer and set off to see the country. Over the next 15 years, they traveled throughout the U.S. and then broadened their travels to include other countries. During this time they started the Escapees RV Club (established in 1978). When Kay set her nursing career aside, she discovered she had a talent for writing. Prior to her death, she authored 14 books (10 nonfiction, three fiction, and one children's book) as well countless magazine articles and philosophical editorials. Kay was also an award-winning Toastmaster who presented motivational and informational seminars across the country. It was perhaps her strongest passion for over 40 years. Kay was also the driving force behind the development of the Escapees CARE Center, a one-of-a-kind adult daycare facility located in Livingston, where the service will be held. Kay died peacefully on June 13, in Fredericksburg, surrounded by family. She is survived by six children (two preceded her in death), along with 19 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. While her physical presence is no longer with us, her legacy will carry on through the generations and through the hundreds of thousands of lives she (and Joe) touched along the way. Those who would like to honor Kay may send a donation to Escapees CARE, Inc. (155 Care Center Drive, Livingston, TX 77351), or to the charity of your choosing.

Peter was born Nov. 18, 1943 in Houston, the son of Earl Peter Yurgensen and Florence Elizabeth Dobson. He grew up in Houston in the Spring Branch area where he graduated from Spring Branch High School in 1961. He did a lot of interesting things in his life, but the one he was probably most proud of was entering the Marines right out of high school. He was one of 250 chosen to be a part of the group now known as Force Recon. He was in the first contingent. Family and friends say he was "a pretty bad ass dude." He was sent to Cuba for the missile crisis and then went to Southeast Asia where he was a part of a highly classified, multi service, special ops unit which conducted covert, unconventional warfare operations. He didn't talk about that time much, but was a part of the group for two years prior to the first official U.S. troops of the Vietnam conflict arriving in country. After leaving Southeast Asia, he and his team ran clandestine missions in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, and several countries in Africa before he was discharged. After the Marine Corps, he graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville with a degree in business. After a long career in finance, he retired from Texas Instruments when he took a parachute retirement package at the ripe old age of 48. He didn't really retire as he and his wife, Rae, moved to Oklahoma to run a cattle ranch. He also worked/volunteered for various Texas and Oklahoma law enforcement agencies and even helped the Mennonites build their house. He probably worked harder during that time than when he had a full time job. Eventually, he moved back to Huntsville and then to the Lake Livingston area. He lived an amazing life. He saw things that others could only imagine while he was in the Marines and continued his exploring later in his life as an avid Harley rider and spent every summer with a group of his friends riding to various parts of the country on their bikes. He was also a 32-degree Mason and was affiliated with the Allen Lodge No. 1435 where he was a past master. Whether it was bull-riding in his youth, sleeping in the jungle in Asia, working in corporations, herding cattle, or riding his Harley on the open road, you could always count on Pete living life to its fullest. Peter is survived by his wife, Rae Nita Reichelt Yurgensen; his daughter, Tonya Yurgensen-Jacks and her husband Kevin Jacks of Houston; brother-in-law, Ted Reichelt of Portland, Ore.; and nieces, Rory Reichelt of Manhattan, Kan., Risa Reichelt of Kodiak, Alaska and Elizabeth LaGravier Rightnower of Rolla, Mo. Peter is preceded in death by his parents and his sister. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Pete's memory be made to the Semper Fi Fund or the Patriot Guard Riders (whom he rode with for a time). Family members say he would also like his friends to not be sad about his passing but to toast his amazing life with a really expensive good scotch. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

TYSON
LIVINGSTON -- Peggy Ann Tyson was born on Nov. 23, 1951 in Mishawaka, Ind. and died on April 4, 2017 in Livingston at 65 years of age. Peggy left behind four sons, Christopher (Livingston), Michael (Hawaii), Robert (Florida) and Tim (Ohio); numerous grandkids, nieces and nephews; sister, Debbie Cherry; and countless other family members and friends. Peggy had the God-given good sense to know what she wanted and make her demands known but was down to earth even finding humor in her own mistakes. Family and friends say she was the perfect combination of firm, yet friendly and bal-anced good-hearted and tough love, which, on occasion, caused speculation that the song "Mama don't take no mess" was written for her. Peggy whole-heartedly backed anyone that she called "friend," frequently responding "Sure, why the hell not" to whatever was being asked from her. She was tough as John Wayne, but gave selflessly of herself and opened her home to others in need. As Peggy's life came and went, she leaves behind a hearty mix of family and friends who will remember her for being a uniquely outspoken individual who was one of the rare few bold enough to live a colorful life. In foresight, she modestly waived traditional funeral services, asking that no one "'fuss" over her, however, family members say tears will still fall and her genuine laughter will be greatly missed. A memorial service was held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 8, at Pace Funeral Home in Livingston. To send online condolences, go to pacefuneral.com.

Claude served in the Texas Army National Guard, worked for a number of telephone companies, and finally settled his family in Livingston. He retired in 1993 from Eastex Telephone Cooperative as Livingston Area manager after a 42-year career in telecommunica-tions. Claude loved to travel and visited almost every state and national park in the continental United States with his wife and grandson. He also found joy nurturing a large community of mallards and geese in his subdivision, raising several generations of hatchlings and guarding them with the fierceness of a mother hen. Claude was a dedicated member of the Lions Club, for whom he was proud to serve as president of his local club, zone and region chairman, district chairman, cabinet secretary, vice district governor, and finally dis-trict governor, as well as a Texas Lions Foundation fellow and trustee. Claude enjoyed participating in various fundraisers for charities and service activities and became passionate about programs to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye health. He served as director, president, and ambassador of the Lions Eye Bank of Texas and spent the last two decades of his life collecting and cataloging used eyeglasses for distribution through the Texas LionsEyeglass Recycling Center and through personal trips to Honduras, Mexico and Africa. For his service, Claude received three International President's Certificates of Appreciation and was awarded two International Leadership Medals. He will be missed by his family and friends, by the people whose career he helped shape at Eastex and who helped shape his, and by the countless individuals who gained vision through his service.

LUNA
LIVINGSTON -- Jesus Maria Luna was born on Nov. 28, 1922 in Lemitar, N.M. and raised nearby in Socorro, a small town south of Albuquerque. He was born to parents, Julian Luna and Barbarita (Gonzales) Luna and died on Sept. 20, 2016 in Livingston. He is preceded in death by his wife, Corine Sanchez Luna. Mr. Luna is survived by his son, Dr. Raymond Luna and wife Grace of Livingston; daughters, Alice Luna Massey and husband Pat of Albuquerque, N.M., Mary Ann Luers and husband Keith of Colorado Springs, Colo., Priscilla Hurley and husband Mike of Denver, Colo. and Julie Luna and Miguel Trujillo of Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, Jeff Luna and wife Vien, Ann Winston and husband Sean, Megan Massey, Brian Massey, Audra Massey, Jonathan Luers, Nathan Luers and wife Lydia, and Jessica Luers; great-grandchildren, Sean Lee Winston and Abigail Luers; and numerous other relatives and friends. His family was quite poor, and he had to work throughout his early life to help with family income. He was always good at math and science and, after high school, he enrolled in the University of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. College was interrupted by service in the Air Force as a navigator/bombardier stationed in England and flying missions over Germany in a B-17 bomber. As with many men who served in World War II, until he enlisted, he had never ventured far from his hometown. His experiences in the service were the source of many of his most vivid memories and stories. After the war he returned to college, getting a degree in metallurgical engineering. He also courted and married Corine Sanchez. They moved to Albuquerque where he worked at Sandia National Laboratories until he retired at 65. Jesus and Corine had five children. They ran the household, as was the norm at that time, with Jesus holding a steady job, doing the heavy house repairs and yard work and Corine doing everything else. In 1983 Corine became ill with cancer and later Parkinson's disease. As she progressively lost the ability to continue domestic duties, to his children's amazement, he progressively assumed them. Toward the end of her life, he was the main one providing the near total care she needed. They were married for 66 years. Jesus was known as a strong, steady, confident but unpretentious man. He was consistently loyal to his family and he will be missed. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. To sign the online guestbook, go to cochranfh.com.

ISRAEL
LIVINGSTON -- Barbara June Israel died on Sept. 26, 2016. She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna; her siblings, Claude, Wade and Betty; both of her sons-in-law, Ray and James; her daughter-in-law, Arnita; her grandson, Scotty and her daughter, Donna, who family members say no doubt met her with a broom and duster in hand, smelling like bleach and smiling knowing she had her parents mansion perfect for their arrival. Barbara was born on Sept. 30, 1938 and spent the next 77-plus years making this world brighter, with not just a good heart, but with the word of God. In her long life she had two great loves, God and family (though family members say a third might be argued…. never get between her and a Butterfinger). Matthew 5:14­5:16 reads: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. That, family members say, was Barbara in a nutshell. She had no shame in her love for God. She burned brightly for all to see, never flickering or fading, shining God's light into her home, into her family's hearts and the lives of so many others. She dedicated much of her time to the church, from teaching Sunday school to leading study groups. She was known as someone who would give you anything you needed, even if it would leave her without, and who was a kind-hearted, giving and forgiving child of God. Barbara was dedicated to her family just as strongly as she was to God. She loved her husband, JT, with a great joy in her heart, but she loved her children even more…. all of them, not just the ones she gave life. She raised not only her children, "Gator," Donna and Kandy, but went on to raise two of her grandchildren, Nigel and Jaimie, and lent her support and love in the raising of three other grandchildren, Barbi, Kaci and Natoshia. She even went a step further as she raised her great-grandson, Jonathan, for many years. She held her other grandchildren, Scotty, Josh, Jennifer and Louis in her heart and rejoiced at each moment spent with them. She often mourned the moments she missed with her son, Danny, and her granddaughter, Deborah. She leaved behind three children, nine grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, one daughter-in-law and many other extended family members and friends. Her burial took place on Sept. 30, 2016 at Klein Memorial Park in Decker Prairie. A celebration of life memorial service in Livingston will be held in the near future, details of which will appear in the classifieds. The family asks that those moved to offer a donation or flowers donate to your church and, should you not have a church, then a shelter, for Barbara wanted little for herself and much for those in need.

LUNA
LIVINGSTON -- Jesus Maria Luna was born on Nov. 28, 1922 in Lemitar, N.M. and raised nearby in Socorro, a small town south of Albuquerque. He was born to parents, Julian Luna and Barbarita (Gonzales) Luna and died on Sept. 20, 2016 in Livingston. He is preceded in death by his wife, Corine Sanchez Luna. Mr. Luna is survived by his son, Dr. Raymond Luna and wife Grace of Livingston; daughters, Alice Luna Massey and husband Pat of Albuquerque, N.M., Mary Ann Luers and husband Keith of Colorado Springs, Colo., Priscilla Hurley and husband Mike of Denver, Colo. and Julie Luna and Miguel Trujillo of Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, Jeff Luna and wife Vien, Ann Winston and husband Sean, Megan Massey, Brian Massey, Audra Massey, Jonathan Luers, Nathan Luers and wife Lydia, and Jessica Luers; great-grandchildren, Sean Lee Winston and Abigail Luers; and numerous other relatives and friends. His family was quite poor, and he had to work throughout his early life to help with family income. He was always good at math and science and, after high school, he enrolled in the University of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. College was interrupted by service in the Air Force as a navigator/bombardier stationed in England and flying missions over Germany in a B-17 bomber. As with many men who served in World War II, until he enlisted, he had never ventured far from his hometown. His experiences in the service were the source of many of his most vivid memories and stories. After the war he returned to college, getting a degree in metallurgical engineering. He also courted and married Corine Sanchez. They moved to Albuquerque where he worked at Sandia National Laboratories until he retired at 65. Jesus and Corine had five children. They ran the household, as was the norm at that time, with Jesus holding a steady job, doing the heavy house repairs and yard work and Corine doing everything else. In 1983 Corine became ill with cancer and later Parkinson's disease. As she progressively lost the ability to continue domestic duties, to his children's amazement, he progressively assumed them. Toward the end of her life, he was the main one providing the near total care she needed. They were married for 66 years. Jesus was known as a strong, steady, confident but unpretentious man. He was consistently loyal to his family and he will be missed. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. To sign the online guestbook, go to cochranfh.com.

ISRAEL
LIVINGSTON -- Barbara June Israel died on Sept. 26, 2016. She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna; her siblings, Claude, Wade and Betty; both of her sons-in-law, Ray and James; her daughter-in-law, Arnita; her grandson, Scotty and her daughter, Donna, who family members say no doubt met her with a broom and duster in hand, smelling like bleach and smiling knowing she had her parents mansion perfect for their arrival. Barbara was born on Sept. 30, 1938 and spent the next 77-plus years making this world brighter, with not just a good heart, but with the word of God. In her long life she had two great loves, God and family (though family members say a third might be argued…. never get between her and a Butterfinger). Matthew 5:14­5:16 reads: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. That, family members say, was Barbara in a nutshell. She had no shame in her love for God. She burned brightly for all to see, never flickering or fading, shining God's light into her home, into her family's hearts and the lives of so many others. She dedicated much of her time to the church, from teaching Sunday school to leading study groups. She was known as someone who would give you anything you needed, even if it would leave her without, and who was a kind-hearted, giving and forgiving child of God. Barbara was dedicated to her family just as strongly as she was to God. She loved her husband, JT, with a great joy in her heart, but she loved her children even more…. all of them, not just the ones she gave life. She raised not only her children, "Gator," Donna and Kandy, but went on to raise two of her grandchildren, Nigel and Jaimie, and lent her support and love in the raising of three other grandchildren, Barbi, Kaci and Natoshia. She even went a step further as she raised her great-grandson, Jonathan, for many years. She held her other grandchildren, Scotty, Josh, Jennifer and Louis in her heart and rejoiced at each moment spent with them. She often mourned the moments she missed with her son, Danny, and her granddaughter, Deborah. She leaved behind three children, nine grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, one daughter-in-law and many other extended family members and friends. Her burial took place on Sept. 30, 2016 at Klein Memorial Park in Decker Prairie. A celebration of life memorial service in Livingston will be held in the near future, details of which will appear in the classifieds. The family asks that those moved to offer a donation or flowers donate to your church and, should you not have a church, then a shelter, for Barbara wanted little for herself and much for those in need.
