Donald Peterson Obituary

Donald “Donnie” Irwin Peterson, age 83, passed away Friday, January 26, 2024 at the Osceola Good Samaritan Society.

Graveside services will be held Tuesday, January 30, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. at the Stromsburg Cemetery with Rev. Andrew Springer officiating. Musical selection will be "How Great Thou Art."

Donnie was born July 13, 1940 in Stromsburg, NE to Helmer “Lengthy” and Hilda (Roos) Peterson. He attended Stromsburg Public Schools.

Donnie worked with his Dad on the family farm as Dad’s right-hand man. He enjoyed disking fields – once he started a field, he didn’t stop until it was finished. He helped with irrigation, baled hay, and took care of livestock. He especially liked going to the sale barn in Ericson, NE with Dad and buying and selling hogs and cattle. Donnie had the truck ready and loaded before Dad got up. He would get up at 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. every morning to make coffee and start chores.

Donnie lived all his life in Stromsburg, NE. He always had a joke or a good laugh to share. His sense of humor and his wit will be remembered by all who knew him.

Survivors include his nephew David (Lori) Birdzell of Lincoln, NE; niece Jocelyn Boruch of Osceola, NE; nine great-nieces and nephews; one daughter Brenda (Kevin) Janousek of McCook; granddaughter Bree Janousek; and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents Hilda Peterson in 1992 and Lengthy Peterson in 1998, one sister Patricia Espinosa, one great-niece Nicole Branting, many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Dubas Funeral Home of Osceola and Stromsburg has been entrusted with arrangements.
