Melva D. Peterman 02/02/1945-11/22/2018.
My mom she was a life long resident of Ocala Florida. she was an avid reader and loved books especially mysteries, Tampa Bay Bucs was her team and she loved the Chicago Cubs, dancing was a passion. She enjoyed the beach, St. Augustine being her favorite spot.
Most of all she loved her family. Her grandkids were the apple of her eye and great grandkids were her heart. My mom never met a stranger always a hello and smile for anyone she came in contact with. Even in her last days through the suffering she had a smile, however brief. She was a true fighter never giving up. She believed there was kindness in this world if we just looked for it. “It’s all around us she would say, kindness.”
She leaves behind four children Debra Powell, Glen Burnie MD, Brian Peterman Ocala Fl, Cindy Langdale Ocala Fl, Tonya Morrow Ocala Fl, 11 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. On 11/22/2018 she got her final wish and went peacefully with the Lord and was able to dance with my father once again. You are at peace sweet lady. Until I see you again.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
