Deno was born October 28, 1938, in Holdrege at the Brewster Hospital, the eldest of two children born to Cyril and Lucille (Lund) Fritz. Deno graduated from Holdrege High School with the class of 1956.
On December 22, 1957, Deno was united in marriage to Dwight Peterson and to this union three children were born: Teri Lea, Sheri Kay, and Donald Gene. The family made their home in Holdrege, where Deno was employed by Becton-Dickinson for 31 years until her retirement. Through the years, Deno and Dwight opened their home to many individuals who needed a place to call “Home” and they were loved and treated as their own children.
She enjoyed bowling, crocheting, most of all spending time with her family. Deno was a member of the Trinity Evangelical Free Church in Holdrege, and enjoyed the friendship bonds formed when she attended workouts at Curves.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, S.C. Fritz; one daughter, Teri Lea as a toddler; and one granddaughter, Martika Johnson.
Deno is survived by her husband, Dwight of Holdrege; one daughter, Sheri Evans of Holdrege; one son, Don Peterson of Holdrege; four grandchildren: Shawn Whetstine and his wife, Christal, Christina Whetstine, Travis Whetstine, and Kayla Evans; fifteen great-grandchildren; adopted daughter, Tiffany Warning of Holdrege; and a host of other relatives and friends.
A memorial has been established in her memory and will be designated at a later date.
