Jacquelyn K. "Jackie" Peters
Jacquelyn K. "Jackie" Peters, 67, of DeWitt, formerly of Grand Mound, died Monday evening, Dec. 23, 2013, at Genesis Medical Center-West Campus, Davenport.

A service of Christian burial will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 28, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Grand Mound with the Rev. Steven Anderson officiating.

Jacquelyn Kay Peters was born June 16, 1946, at the former Jane Lamb Hospital in Clinton to William "Butch" and Helen Manning Peters. Jackie was schooled at the former Grand Mound Elementary and went on to graduate from Central Community High School, DeWitt, in May 1964.

She worked in the kitchen at the former Ott's Tavern in Grand Mound for a time. Jackie was a caregiver much of her life for children and the elderly.

She was a lifelong member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Grand Mound. She enjoyed counted cross-stitch, cooking, photography, writing poetry, traveling via Amtrak, going to garage sales, collecting bunnies, bears and purple items and e-mailing family and friends. Jackie deeply cared about others, never meeting a stranger.

Surviving are an aunt, Norma Manning of DeWitt, as well as many cousins and friends.

Preceding Jackie in death were her parents and a sister, Sandra Kay.

Memorials to Immanuel Lutheran Church would be appreciated.
