February 5, 1947 — December 7, 2014

Luetta Aleen Wenquist Peterson was born February 5, 1947 to Morris and Pauline Wenquist in Broken Bow, Nebraska. She left for her heavenly home on December 7, 2014 at her home in rural Gothenburg from complications of a 16 month battle with metastatic breast cancer.

Luetta grew up in Broken Bow participating in many musical endeavors and graduating with the class of 1965. While in school set met her husband, Jerry, playing cornet in the Southwest Conference Band Clinic. They were married on August 31, 1968 in Broken Bow.

Luetta was a Hastings College graduate and used her musical abilities to play piano for many years at New Hope and the Evangelical Free Churches in Gothenburg. One of her many pastimes was listening to and watching the Gaither video series along with all of the other Gospel singers.
