Death: May 24, 2002

Beauregard Parish

Ketha was raised in Grant, Louisiana, in Allen Parish near DeRidder. She first married ____ LaCaze, with whom she had three children, Coleman "Jimmy" Alva Lee LaCaze #6994577, J.C. LaCaze, Judy LaCaze; 2nd husband, Joe James Hillman, with whom she had one son, King James Hillman. Ketha was a remarkably industrious person, and enjoyed working in a variety of pursuits. She told me how she, as a young mother with her first child, worked picking cotton. Later, with Joe James they had a laundry & dry cleaning business, then a major appliance & floor covering store. She had an eye for business, and enjoyed the challenge. Later when she married my father (Wilson Peters), she helped him streamline the business side of his dental practice. She was active in the First Baptist church along with my Dad. She also loved to travel. She was of a smiling, upbeat and positive nature.
