Together We Mourn the Loss of a Friend

Lois Victoria Peterson
Feb 27, 1926 - Sep 6, 2013

Nebraskans for Peace lost one of its dearest and most faithful friends Friday, September 6, 2013 when Victoria Peterson passed away at 87. For more than two decades this native Nebraska peacemaker was nothing less than a 'fairy godmother' to Nebraskans for Peace providing always timely volunteer service and financial support to ensure that NFP could continue to perform its mission. A kinder, more generous soul has never walked the earth. It is folks like Victoria who are directly responsible for NFP enduring to become the oldest statewide Peace & Justice organization in the United States. We will always remember her because we will always miss her.

The following obituary appeared in the Omaha World Herald.
