Mrs. Myrle Peterson, 88, now walks with our Heavenly Father. On January 14, 2017, after twelve days in Abilene Regional Medical Center in Abilene, TX, God answered her calling prayers and took her home. Mrs. Peterson had been a resident of Cisco for many years until she moved back to Abilene to be closer to family. She was a devoted member of the First Baptist Church of Cisco. After retirement as apartment managers in Odessa, TX she and her late husband, Earl Peterson enjoyed life on their small ranch near Cisco and she later worked at Greer's Western Store in Eastland until her early eighties.
