OSAGE CITY — Alice K. (Johnson) Peterson, Osage City, died Monday, Aug. 10, 2020, at her home, surrounded by her loving family. She was 57.
She was born Feb. 26, 1963, at Topeka, the daughter of the late Ernie and Irene (Morgan) Johnson.
A gifted artist, Alice enjoyed drawing, pencil sketching, calligraphy and making jewelry. She owned and ran Peachtree Jewelry from her dining room table. Her creativity was also expressed through solving puzzles and playing family games.
Sundays were saved for worship, lunch with family and afternoon drives in the country. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Alice taught and oversaw the Sunday school program at Grace Lutheran Church for many years.
Vacations were a special time for her family. A devoted aunt, she shared her love of travel with each of her nieces and nephews when they turned five years old. She enjoyed planning for and dreaming of the next trip. The family created wonderful memories traveling from coast to coast. She especially loved the California Redwoods.
Alice is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Todd; and three wonderful children, Erin, Jacob (Samantha), and Sarah Peterson (Joe Schemm); a grandson, Brooks; and two sisters, Diana Johnson-Patterson and her twin, Linda Fricke.
The family will receive friends 6 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12, at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, Osage City. Due to COVID restrictions, the family asks that visitors please wear a mask and maintain social distancing when paying their respects. Anyone showing symptoms or recently exposed to someone showing symptoms is asked to simply send prayers.
