Martha Aileen Peterson

I, Martha A Peterson, have lived a fantastic life beginning on September 16, 1921 through May 20, 2019. I am now at peace, and having fun.

I was the wife of Glen Dailey, Len Church, and Joe Peterson, all of whom I survived. I was the mother of three wonderful children, a grandmother and a great grandmother.

I attended Parkrose High School, and graduated in 1939. I graduated from OSU in May 1944 with a nursing degree then continued onto OHSU and Emmanuel Hospital where I received my bachelors of science in nursing. After years of being a scrub nurse I decided to go back to school and become a public health nurse where I was a school nurse and did home visits for the elderly in East Multnomah County.

I enjoyed gardening, sewing, knitting, canning and flower arranging. I was a member of 4-H, the Flower Lane Garden Club, Oregon Trailers Square Dance Club and the Grace Bible Fellowship Church.

Please make donations to Leech Gardens in the name of Martha Peterson instead of sending flowers.
