Dear Dorcas, Peter, and Jack,
I will remember Aunt Alice always for her sweet spirit and quiet dignity. Her example of gentleness, caring, and unconditional love is a part of my Peer heritage that I value and treasure so much. May the memories of your dear mother fill you with joy and peace in the days and years ahead.

Many good memories about time with Alice and you, Peter, but this was a shock that Alice had failed so quickly. My prayers with love of Jesus Christ for you.

Aunt Alice was an extraordinary person. She had a lot of discomfort in her later years, but she always had a smile and something funny to say. We never left her house without saying, “Oh, didn’t we have fun! She could live freely because she was always at peace with the Lord and in step with the will of her heavenly Father. She served her Lord, her family, and her church long and well.

Steve and Kay Watkins - Feb 18, 2013

Mrs. Peer was a wonderful Godly woman who loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with all of her heart and being. She was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her and she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. We are thankful that she is now rejoicing in Heaven with those that have gone ahead of her.
