Helen Croft Peters was born June 13, 1926 to Thomas B. & Elna J. Croft of Lovell, WY. Helen passed away peacefully in her home in Hobbs, NM on November 25, 2018 from the effects of age. She was 92 years old. Helen married her high school sweetheart, A.A. (Pete) Peters on July 17, 1946 in Lovell, WY and they enjoyed 70 years together before Pete’s passing. Helen was active in school—graduating from Lovell High School then attending the University of Wyoming—as well as church activities. She then turned her attention to making a lovely home for her husband and four children who would join their family. Helen was known for her talent at decorating (especially for Christmas), cooking (infamous cinnamon rolls), service in her communities and Church. She held many positions of leadership as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and when Helen was in charge of an activity or conference, etc. people knew it would be exceptional. Helen stated her greatest joy came from supporting her husband and children in their many responsibilities. Helen enjoyed caring for her home & family, gardening, handwork, cooking, and studying her scriptures. She was grateful for the time she could spend serving in the Lubbock, TX Temple. She is survived by her brother, Richard Croft of Arizona, Mary Kocherhans, Carol Nelson, & Lynne Lynn of Utah, four children and their spouses: Richard (Ginger), Paula Bensing (Robert), Barry (Vickie), and Paige Cannon (Mike); 13 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; and her faithful companion “Hannah,” a miniature schnauzer. She was preceded in death by her husband, Pete, one grandchild, Cole Wilson, and a great-grandchild, Hugo Bensing. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
