NANCY ANNE PETERSON (published on February 17, 2010)

NANCY ANNE PETERSON May 5, 1956 - February 11, 2010 Leave room in your garden for the angels to dance. Peacefully with family by her side, Nancy passed away at home at the age of 53 years. Nancy lived life and fought cancer with dignity, grace and courage. Left to cherish her memory are her parents, Margaret and George Peterson, her sisters Pat Burtney (Arnold) and Alison Griffith (Gary), her loving husband Hutch Lawson and her stepson Jason Lawson. Nancy was the first child born to Margaret and George and was eager to experience all that life offered. While growing up in Windsor Park Nancy excelled at school and was involved in many community activities including baton, Brownies, Girl Guides, sports, and Windsor Park Collegiate student council. At 17 Nancy was elected to the Teen Council Board at The Bay and thus began her management career. It was at The Bay that Nancy met many of her life long friends including her original business partner, Trudi Backman. Together, Nancy and Trudi created Pulse Marketing out of which Nancy's company, Think Unlimited was ultimately born. Nancy was fascinated by the thought process and sought to release the creative spirit through her work as a facilitator. She was a voracious reader and believed in life long learning. She was highly skilled in her field and taught large and small groups to make decisions, solve problems and work together through positive thinking and actions. Nancy loved planning and enjoying her garden each year. She also loved to watch CFL football (especially the Bombers), and entertain friends at home and at her cottage. Entertaining was a skill learned first hand from her mother Margaret and she always made friends and family feel welcome. Nancy was a vibrant, loving, caring person who never missed an opportunity to encourage someone else. She will be missed by many. We wish to thank Dr. M. Stephensen, Dr. R Lotocki, RN's Darlene and Michelle and the staff at St. Boniface General Hospital who helped Nancy during the past few months. Thank you to palliative nurses Monique, Kelly, and Tracy for your help and guidance - you were strong and calm when we needed you most, and thanks also to health care aide Anna. If friends so desire, memorial contributions can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, The Winnipeg Humane Society, or any other charity of your choice. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 22, 2010 at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Boulevard, south of the Royal Canadian Mint, with Patricia Frain presiding. Cremation has taken place and a private family interment will take place at a later date. GLEN LAWN FUNERAL HOME 982-7550
