Norma Kay Peterson, 81, passed away on November 29, 2023. Kay was born on June 18, 1942 in Roswell, NM, the daughter of Norman and Maxine Walker.

She married her childhood sweetheart, Gene Peterson in Roswell, NM on January 29, 1960. She asked Gene on their first date to a Rainbow Girl dance. They have been inseparable ever since. Kay had a career as an LP Nurse before she joined Gene in his parts business.

Kay enjoyed painting, camping, crafts, and people. She always had a smile on her face and a hug for everyone. She also was very interested in the family's genealogy and spent a lot of time researching and sharing her findings. She loved playing with her grandkids.
