Leona M. Peterson

July 26, 1933 — January 19, 2024


Leona Mae Peterson passed away at the age of 90, at Cornerstone Villa in Buhl,

MN. She was born to Theodore and Iona (Gunderson) Jacobson on July 26, 1933.

Leona grew up in the farming area near Ada, MN. She graduated from the Ada

High School in 1951. Later the family moved to Hibbing so Theodore could go to

work in the mines. Leona married Edgar Peterson, also from Ada and they made

their home in Hibbing. Leona loved to cook and bake and always had coffee ready

for anyone who stopped by. Saturday morning coffee was a given!

Leona was preceded in death by her parents, Ted and Iona Jacobson, husband, Edgar Peterson, sister,

Thelma Thomas. She is survived by her daughters, Julie (Alan) Bexell and their

son Ethan, Kami (Joe) Bonelli and their son Aaron (Alysha) and their daughter,

Abigail Bonelli, brothers, Ron (Dotsy) Jacobson, Larry Jacobson, Ted (Sharon) Jacobson,

Terry (Sue) Jacobson and many nieces and nephews. Leona’s family would like to

thank the staff at Cornerstone Villa and Moments Hospice for the wonderful care

they provided. Per Leona’s request no services will be held. There will be a private

interment at a later date.
