The good Lord welcomed Hazel to reunite with her deceased husband, son, and Simensen family. Hazel had an extremely active life. Her talents in music and art kept her happy, as well as her many friends at her beloved Rio Verde community. She felt so lucky to belong to that community from the earliest days in 1974.

Proceeded in death by her husband, Richard F. Peterson, Jr., and son Del Peterson, Hazel is survived by daughter Sue (Tommy) Sterling of Phoenix, son Gary (Jullie) Peterson of Vail, CO., daughter-in-law Gloria Peterson of San Diego, grandson Jon Foster; many nieces, nephews, and longtime friends.
