V. Henry Peterson, 89, passed away at his home on the farm site on June 29th, 2017. 

He was raised on that farm and went to school in Ellendale. He graduated from school in ten years and went on to Bethel College for two years. Following Bethel College, he completed four years of schooling at Southern Baptist Seminary and became an ordained minister. In 1955, he came home because his father was ill. His father passed away and Henry continued to farm and kept his flock of sheep, until he was no longer able. 

We would like to thank all the people who helped Henry during his illness, especially Tim Enzenauer. 

There will be a short grave side service at Forest Hill Cemetery on Thursday July 6th, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. Those who wish to attend are welcome. For more information or to leave an online condolence message go to
