Longtime Soldotna and Kenai resident Esther B. Tyler Peteet died Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2006, in Soldotna. She was 101.

At the request of the family, no services will be held. Her ashes will be laid to rest, next to her late husband, Leo, at the Kenai City Cemetery.

Mrs. Peteet was born June 27, 1904, to William Henry and Ida May Barrington in Barkley, Kan. She moved to Anchorage in 1936, where she lived until 1938 when she moved to Kodiak. She lived in Kodiak for six years and returned to Anchorage in 1944, where she stayed until 1955 when she moved to Kenai and Soldotna.

In addition to being a housewife, she was the bookkeeper for Tyler Distributing until she retired in 1974. Mrs. Peteet had an active social life and enjoyed playing cards, dominoes and delivering newspapers to the Kenai Senior Citizens Center housing facility. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Post No. 20 for 44 years.

“Esther will be remembered for her sense of humor, elegant dress attire and for her love of animals and babies,” her family said.

Mrs. Peteet was preceded in death by her husband, Leo Tyler in 1963, and her husband, Walt Peteet in 1992.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Victor Gordon and Vickie Tyler of Kenai; granddaughters, Jennifer Tyler of Kenai and Lane Beauchamp of Kenai; and great-granddaughter, Sydney Tyler of Kenai.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
