Theresa Simona Peetz, the daughter of Pedro “Pete” and Jesusa “Jessie” (Rodriguez) Rosas, was
born on February 18, 1931 in Denver, CO. She attended rural school near Proctor while living in Proctor and Iliff, CO area. She later graduated from Crook High School in 1947. In 1948 she moved to Sidney where she worked for the Sioux Army Depot until 1952. On May 13, 1952 Theresa was united in marriage to Richard M. Peetz at Iliff, CO. She was a stay at home mother until beginning work at Stickney’s where she was employed as a secretary until 1981.

Theresa’s hobbies included reading, crossword puzzles and working in her yard. She enjoyed all sports and enjoyed attending her son’s and grandson’s football, wrestling, basketball and baseball events. Her Religion, Family and Friends were very important to her as well as her cats Kelly and Sammy. We were so blessed to have her with us for so many years and we will miss her sweet, kind, gentle, loving, and caring presence in our lives. She would want us to say, “God Bless You” as that is how she always ended every conversation.

To the family, this one of a kind lady was one of my favorite memories of working at Stickney's together somewhere in the 70's..she was a delight to be around...always positive and fun loving and just plain sweet! We kept in touch through the years and her love for her faith blessed me..I know she will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. May all the memories of her keep you hoping that one day we will see her again. She loved her some Jesus...I can only imagine her now and knowing that some of her best days are yet ahead....Blessings of comfort to you all. Marilyn Dykman Soucie
