Alice Paige Peterson - Obituary


lice “Paige” Peterson, 76, of Fort Washington, Md., was called to rest on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. Paige was born on April 27, 1946 and was the daughter of the late Carl “Fred” Travers and Alice Renne. Paige is survived by her loving husband of forty-eight years, James “Jim” Peterson; daughters Angie Peterson and Deborah Scott; sisters Deborah Simon (Bob), Karla Brown, Lori Gallagher Miller (Doug), Leslie Travers, Lisa Travers, Leanne Parnell, and LaDonna Brady (Sean); brother Len Renne (Melody); nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and god-grandchildren who each held a special place in her heart; and a host of other family members and dear friends. Paige was preceded in death by her parents. Paige, the oldest of nine, grew up in District Heights, Md. and graduated from Suitland High School. She was always great with numbers and shortly after high school was employed with the Washington Drug Exchange as an accountant. This is also where she met her husband, Jim. She would leave the company to become the accountant and office manager for Clinton Mechanical Contractors retiring from the company after 40 years of service. Paige also served on Our Savior’s School Board for 23 years. Everyone who knew Paige felt her big heart and nurturing nature especially around the Christmas holiday where she would transform her home into a Christmas Wonderland. She was a huge fan of football, her favorite team being the former Washington “Redskins.” She and Jim were season ticket holders for over 35 years and even traveled to super bowls to cheer on their favorite team. Paige enjoyed bowling, playing cards, gardening, reading, sewing, and relaxing in her hot tub. She especially loved teaching her younger siblings, nieces and nephews how to swim in the backyard pool during the summer months. And as a true Marylander, would never miss an opportunity to eat steamed Maryland blue crabs. When not in Maryland, you could find Paige with her family at their second home enjoying the sand and water in North Myrtle Beach, SC. A celebration of her life will be held at the Kalas Funeral Home and Crematory, 6160 Oxon Hill Rd, Oxon Hill, Md. 20745, starting with the Viewing on Monday, September 12, 2022 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM. The funeral service will be on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at noon. Interment will follow at Epiphany Episcopal Church Cemetery, 3111 Ritchie Rd, Forestville, MD 20747.
