Mrs. Annette Peters (’57)

Annette Trigg Peters was born on January 5, 1935, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Houston, Texas, to Margaret (Lingle) and Theodore “Ted” Trigg. She grew up in Southside Place and graduated from Lamar High School in January 1953. Annette attended Stephens College in Missouri and finished her education at the University of Houston where she was introduced to her husband, Roy “Pete” Peters on a blind date. They were married in 1957 at Grace Lutheran Church, which was founded by her grandparents, Christine and Harry Lingle. Annette and Pete moved to McAllen, Texas, where their daughters Cathy and Suzanne, were born. After they returned to Houston, their daughters, Christy and Tracy, joined the family. Annette was very busy during these early years raising their children and helping her husband at their business, Esquire Fine Cleaners. When they weren’t entertaining and spending time with friends in Houston or attending U of H football games, they spent time with family and close family friends in Port O’Connor, as well as traveling the world. After Pete retired, they spent time at their antique store, Barn and Bell, and weekend home outside of Bellville with good friends nearby and family always around. Most recently, Annette enjoyed time with their Dinner Club, her Bible Study friends and catching up with new and lifelong friends. Annette loved the holidays and most of all loved being with her grandchildren and great-granddaughter, Paige Annette. Annette was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Ralph Trigg, and is survived by her husband of 62 years, Pete, Cathy Peters and Lynda Ventura, Suzanne and Richard Krolczyk, Christy Cabeen, Tracy and Scott Ashmore, as well as her grandchildren Reagan, Grant and Paige Smith, Tyler Krolcyzk, Whitney Cabeen, Sydney, Scott and Kate Ashmore.The family will receive visitors at Holy Covenant United Methodist Church, 22111 Morton Ranch, Katy, Texas, on Monday, December 2nd, at 10:30 a.m. followed by a Memorial Service at 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Many thanks to her many wonderful caregivers over the last several months, as well as friends who visited, called, sent cards and wrote often.
