Elizabeth, also known as “Betty” or “Liz” Peterson, 89, of Fergus Falls, MN, died on Sunday, August 1, 2021 at her daughter’s residence in Elizabeth.

Liz was a caregiver to many throughout her years and always cared for her family first. Liz and Roy operated Jewett Lake Resort with her children for many years where she treated her guests as if they were family. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, crocheting, and fishing. Liz enjoyed traveling with Roy, to Texas and Arizona for winters; visiting family around the country; and the yearly WWII US Saratoga Reunion they attended every year. Liz cherished spending time with her family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her loving nature and humor will be missed.
