Quad City Times - December 19, 1998

BUFFALO, Iowa -- Dorothy Lou Peek Burtchett, of Buffalo, started her new life with the Lord Jesus on Thursday, Dec. 17, 1998, at Genesis Medical Center-East Campus, Davenport. Services will be 1 p.m. Monday at Cunnick-Collins Mortuary, Davenport, with visitation on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Burial will be in Davenport Memorial Park. Dorothy Lou Peek was chosen by her parents, Robert and Beulah Rutherford, on April 20, 1931, in Galax, Va. She fell in love with and married Amos "Bud" Peek in Roanoke, Va., in 1945. She lost her husband at the young age of 22 in a boating accident. For the next nine years she raised a 6 year old and an infant as a single parent. She then married Aaron "Ray" Burtchett in 1962. He passed away in 1989. She retired as a dietary technician in 1991 from Royal Neighbors Nursing Home. Mom enjoyed camping, fishing, watching baseball, the Grand Ole Opry, dancing and "cutting up." Most of all she enjoyed cooking large dinners for her family. She also enjoyed family get-togethers. You never went to Grandma's house without eating something. Our Mom dedicated her life to raising us, teaching us values of honesty, integrity, hard work, love for others and the strength of the family unit. We are forever indebted to her for the sacrifices she made throughout her life to enrich ours. Our mother's life will be forever celebrated in our memories. Memorials may be made to Kessler Clinic, Davenport. Survivors include sons and daughters-in-law, Bud and Dee Peek and Rich and Joy Peek, Davenport; and grandchildren, Todd and Tara Peek, Brad, Renee, Sarah, Alex and Andrew. In addition to her two husbands, she was preceded in death by her parents and grandson, Brandon. May they all rejoice in the house of the Lord, forever.
