On March 14, 1932, Beverly Mae was born in the Buckeye Community south of Broken Bow, to Glen and Ona (Williams) Ferguson. Beverly’s mother died a few days after her birth.  A few years later Glen married Blanche Gibson, who became Beverly’s loving mother. Beverly graduated from Broken Bow High School in 1950. She also took Normal Training so that she could teach school. Beverly taught for several years before getting married. Later she taught music at Weissert and Westerville.


On May 4, 1952, Beverly was married to Lewis Peterson at Broken Bow at the E.U.B. Church. Beverly and Lewis lived in the Weissert Community for over 45 years. They eventually retired and moved into Broken Bow. Lewis died on December 19, 2003.  


Beverly was a faithful member of the Weissert Church. She played the piano and led the music at the church for many years. Beverly played the piano and sang for countless funerals and weddings. She was still able to play the piano days before her death. Beverly loved music, but loved her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren more than anything.  


Survivors include sons; Randall Peterson and wife Lisa of Weissert, and Roland Peterson and wife Mary Jo of Broken Bow, a sister Vicki (Gene) Boss of Muscatine, IA, grandchildren; Glenn Peterson, Lindsey Jucht, Benjamin Peterson, Scott Peterson, Kyle Peterson, Brett Peterson, Austin Peterson, and Hope Peterson and eight great-grandchildren.
