Claudine Anaise Moreau Peters returned to our Loving Source and dearly loved family members awaiting her return on Sunday, July 9, 2017.

Claudine was born in Nantes, France, on April 15, 1924. She is preceded by her loving husband, Charles Vincent Peters, her courageous parents, Henri and Antoinette (Cointo) Moreau and her heroic brother, Henri Lucien Moreau. She is survived by her devoted children, Joel H. (Guadalupe) Peters, Marie-France (Steven) Russell, and 5 grandchildren: Christopher-Joel, Benjamin and Amanda Peters; Steven and Andelyn Russell; her great grandson, Nolan, and a second great-grandchild arriving soon. She is also survived by her dearest sisters, her twin, Antoinette Laurens and little sister, Lucette Mahe-Averty; and many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

Claudine’s love for her family and friends, French and Breton culture and handiwork, and especially her family’s heroism during World War II is a lasting legacy for all of us blessed to know her. Claudine’s life was changed forever by the Nazi occupation of Nantes and Ste. Nazaire, Brittany. Her father was involved in numerous activities to aid those involved in the French Resistance with the greatest sacrifice made by her brother, Henri, who was arrested and executed by a Nazi firing squad in Nantes, France at the age of 19.

The courage to move on from such atrocities led Claudine to work for the American Army located in Orleans, France, where she met her husband, Charles, a career soldier in the US Army. Charles’ own personal valor during World War II  and shared values led to their marriage and upon Charles’ retirement from the Army, family life in Chicago, Illinois.

Claudine’s gifts are a great faith in a Loving God Who helped her carry-on through the loss of loved ones, an enduring love and support for her children and grandchildren, a joy and zest to be with family and friends, and to appreciate the good times that Life presented. Claudine told her loved ones to laugh, enjoy and be happy shortly before she crossed back to her Loving God and the family awaiting her return. Thank you and God bless you, Claudine/Maman/Grandma/Nana/Mrs. Peters. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to www.woundedwarriorproject.org, Divine Word Missionaries (www.divineword.org) or your favorite charity.  Thank you.
