Lucile Moody Peters
(03 June 1916 - 03 Apr 2011)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
  We have still more sad news today.   Lucile Moody Peters, mother of     Yvonne Peters Hoyle (Hampton HS - '64) of Northern VA,   Karen Peters Curling (Hampton HS) of VA, and     Jeanne Peters (Hampton HS - '73) of VA; and mother-in-law of       Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA, passed away at home in Hampton on Sunday, April 03, 2011 at the age of 94.

     From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA to     Frances Goodson Wang ('65) of MD - 04/03/11, 10:44 PM - "    Yvonne's (Peters Hoyle - Hampton HS - '64 - of Northern VA) Mom":

Hi Frances,

I don't know if Yvonne has been in touch yet. Her mother, Lucile Peters, passed away at home early this evening. Her home hospice care was a positive experience. She was mostly comfortable and peaceful, surrounded by her daughters, and visited by a number of friends. I was down for the weekend, and it happened while I was driving back. They expect to have the funeral on Thursday. I'll go back down the day before.


   Oh, no!  Thank you for letting me know, Frances.  Yvonne and Henry, you have my sincerest sympathies.  The death of a parent is never an easy thing - no matter how old we - or they - are.

     From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 04/04/11, 12:40 PM:

Thank you, Carol.

This past month has had both happy and sad events. On March 7 we got new twin grand-children, Caleb Robert and Caroline Lucile. When Great-Grandma Lucile first started home hospice care a little over a week ago, the twins went to Hampton, and Great-Grandma got to meet them.
  In one of the attached pictures Caroline Lucile was 19 days old and Great-Grandma Lucile was 34,629 days old.

There should be an obituary in the Daily Press within a few days.


   What a wonderful blessing for all of you that they were all able to meet on this earth!  Those are particularly adorable little babies, Cousin Henry!  I'm sure they will be a great comfort to you in this time of grief.

  Dear Jeannie, Yvonnie and Kay, Vel joins me in saying how sorry we are in the passing of your mother. I am just so grateful that I was able to spend time in Hampton with all of you her last few days. I do remember all the fun times I had with you all and your mom and dad when all of us were growing up and will always treasure those memories. See you all soon. Barbara Braig Ward

O Lord of Life, Where'er They Be

- Lyrics by Frederick L. Hosmer, 1888; Music by Melchior Vulpius (circa 1560-1615)

O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Thine own eternity,
Our dead are living unto Thee:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

All souls are Thine, and here or there
They rest within Thy sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thy Word is true, Thy ways are just;
Above the requiem, “Dust to dust,”
Shall rise our psalm of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

O happy they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed,
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
