Joan Alice Peterson

Joan Alice Peterson died Oct. 27, 2021. Some of Joan’s accomplishments included her 64 year marriage to the love of her life Gerald Peterson, owning a popular wine and cheese shop in Redlands, but the thing that Joan was the most proud of was her family, she always showed up for her family, whether it was a family sporting event or a school concert she was always the loudest cheer leader.
