September 10, 1948 - January 9, 2021
Lenore Elaine Peterson, 72, of Ringgold VA, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 9, 2021 following a short illness. She was born September 10, 1948 in Wilcox, PA, to the late Arthur and Vera Bennett Peterson. Lenore was one of 10 children with 5 surviving. Lenore proudly worked for over 30 years at Corning Glass as a Quality Control Glass Inspector in both Bradford, PA as well as in the Danville location. She was a woman of many passions including music, plants, fishing, and she adored her pet family that included, five dogs and a parrot. She had a zest for life and never met a stranger, though small in stature she was larger than life. She refused to let life or health challenges define her till the end. Lenore is survived by 3 children, Jim Irons and wife Julie of Erie, PA, Jennifer Phinney and husband Mark of Williamsburg, VA, and Jessica South of Ringgold, VA and partner, George “Peanut” Perdue, of Danville, VA. She is also survived by 4 grandchildren, Kendra and Kylar Irons, and Megan and Bradley Phinney. She is also survived by her daughter by choice, Carol Taylor and husband Bill and their son, Cody Taylor all of Smethport, PA. She was preceded in death by her closest friends Lois McCausey and Brenda Turpin. We are sure they are celebrating her arrival in Heaven together now. A celebration of Lenore’s life will be held on Friday, January 15, 2021 at the Wrenn-Yeatts Westover Chapel at 3:00 p.m. with the Reverend Bob Yeaman officiating. At Lenore’s request her remains will be scattered at a later time and a tree will be planted in her remembrance. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and at other times they can pay their respects at the home of George Perdue at 427 Avondale Drive Danville, VA 24541 on Thursday throughout the day. In lieu of flowers the family suggest that memorial donations be made to one of her favorite causes the Danville Area Humane Society. Wrenn-Yeatts Westover Chapel is respectfully serving the family.
