Coleen Peters

Our beloved mother Coleen Peters was born December 18th, 1956, to Betty Verdugo and Frank Peters Sr. She was born and raised in Ukiah, CA. Coleen is a tribal member of the Guidiville Indian Rancheria, and lived the majority of her life on the Yokayo Rancheria. She was a long-standing member of the 1910 Indian Shaker Church which included traveling throughout northern California, Oregon, Washington, and into Canada to do the work of ministry.

Our mom loved playing softball growing up and achieved success and earned many trophies during that time. In her younger years she worked in the convalescent hospital here in Ukiah alongside her mother Betty. She loved to be active outdoors working in her yard and doing housekeeping. Coleen worked for 20+ years doing custodial work for her tribe the Guidiville Indian Rancheria.

Coleen loved her family and enjoyed spending time with her kids and grandkids. She was an avid lover of animals, especially her cats and dogs. Coleen also cared for many stray and feral cats over many years. Coleen loved soul and R&B music and shared this love of music with her children. She loved watching sports, which included watching as much NFL football as possible, specifically her favorite player Patrick Mahomes. She loved Golden State Warriors basketball and also enjoyed watching Women’s Softball and Grand Sumo Wrestling tournaments. Coleen also loved her favorite TV shows and movies as well. 

Our mother was a caring, thoughtful individual who was dependable and someone you could lean on when you needed help. When times would get tough, she would be one of the first people to help those she loved and cared for. She was non-judgmental and would do what was in her power to help those in need around her. We will miss her laughter and her humor. Our hearts are broken and full of sorrow at her sudden passing.

Coleen is survived by her brother Randy Peters and sister Melinda Williams, Daughter Candice Peters, Son’s Jeremy and Charley Peters, Grandsons Angel Anguiano, Manny Verdugo, and Jordan Peters, Granddaughters Beautiful Martinez and Eileen Ramirez. Her nieces Trish Mireles, Jennifer Peters, Dawn Littlemoon, Mikayla and Monica Pedroza, and nephews Joseph Littlemoon, Sam Sierra, and Miles Peters.
