Darlene Peterson passed away at the age of 72 after a long illness on August 22, 2019. Darlene was born in San Diego and spent most of her life in southern California. She graduated from Hoover High School in 1965. She worked for Mercy Hospital and then Scripps Mercy for about 25 years, retiring in 2006. She started as a junior accountant but because of her meticulous work ethic and personality worked her way up to the administrative position of financial analyst. She lived in Santee for about 20 years but has lived in Murrieta the past 16 years. She enjoyed her retirement until her illness took over control and limited her activities. She loved to travel, read, garden, cook, and especially loved walking her Boxer, named Rocky. Family meant everything to Darlene and she so enjoyed having fun with her husband, daughters, and grandchildren. She is survived by her husband Robert Peterson married 36 years, sisters Ruth Romo of Santee and Rita Hutchinson of Appleton, Wisconsin, brother Lloyd Hutchinson of La Mesa, daughters Nicole Kylin of Florida, Christie Christopher and her husband Bob of Menifee, and Julie Peterson of Murrieta, and six grandchildren; Tyler, David, Matheu, Ellie, Jacob, and Nicholas. It is with great sorrow that we make this announcement. She will be dearly missed. She was so special, so unselfish, so generous, so caring.

We cousins were always together as children... lived in the same neighborhood and went to same schools, although I'm older by a few years. What I remember is mischief, and Darlene's big laugh. We are sad for her family who loved her so very much. Best love, Carolyn
