July 7, 1946 - April 8, 2021
Nita Louise Peterson, 74, of Bay City, our caring, honest, strong, and most loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at her home. Nita was born in Bay City on July 7, 1946, the daughter of the late Edward and Margaret Jablonski. She was a graduate of Bay City Central and went on to attend Delta College, completing her studies to become a nursing assistant. While bartending at the American Legion, she happened to meet a young man by the name of Melvin Peterson. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on January 12, 1974. Sadly, Melvin preceded Nita in death on Aug 23, 2020, after 46 years of marriage. A natural comforter and caregiver, Nita worked in the home health care field for many years, including Tri City Nursing. In her free time, she enjoyed camping, knitting, crocheting, and word search puzzles. Always one with a green thumb, Nita loved tending to her flower garden. Her legacy of love will forever live on. Nita leaves to carry on her legacy, her children, Yvonne (Howard "Butch") Williams, Catherine (Bill) Laird, Raymond Scott Beck, Sr., Melvin (Ruth) Peterson, Jr., and Stephen Peterson. She will forever be missed by her 17 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Nita is also survived by her brother, Edward (Carol) Jablonski, Jr., and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and her husband, Nita was welcomed home to heaven by her son, Christopher and sister, Kay LaRoche. Nita's family will be present to receive visitors on Friday, April 16, 2021 from 11:30 AM until Nita's 1:00 PM Memorial Ceremony at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 821 N. Pine Rd., between Ridge & Center. Interment will follow in Floral Gardens Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the wishes of the family.
