Diane Kay Peters was born on January 20, 1955, in Lafayette, Indiana to Charles and
Mary Helen (Long) Skiles. She peacefully went to be with the Lord on January 5th, 2023, at
home surrounded by her family, at the age of sixty-seven years, eleven months, and fifteen days.
On September 7th, 1974, she was joined in marriage to Loren Ray Peters. Shortly after, on

Brielle Diane Peters; and Reed, Jack, and Ava Yost.

Skiles; sisters-in-law, Kris Peters and Mary and Norm Filbrun; brother-in-law, Mike and Kim
Peters, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Mother’s Alzheimer’s/Dementia diagnosis was a distress to her, yet she humbly accepted
it as being the Lord’s will. Despite the unpleasantness of her disease, she faithfully claimed her
Jesus and praised Him in song. We are thankful for the life she lived and for good memories to
