Donna Howick Petersen, passed away Monday, May 15, 2017, at her home in Mesquite, Nevada. She was born Nov. 28, 1921, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Mahonri Carter and Vera Martha Lythgoe Howick.
Donna’s life partner and husband, Clarence Emil Petersen “Click” preceded her in death this past Feb. In life, they did everything together: golf, fishing, ‘The Cabin’, bowling, hunting, and Bingo. We know after 76 years of marriage, Monday was the day for a glorious reunion of husband and wife and all who had passed before her.
Donna and Click loved their family. In fact, their daughter, Linda, was Donna’s best friend.
Donna will be greatly missed. We love you Mom, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother.
