Remembering a Hero and an Angel:
Erin Peterson

by Kevin Caruso

Erin Peterson, 18; freshman with an undeclared major; from Centerville, Virginia; graduated from Westfield High School.

Erin was an outgoing and popular young woman who loved life.

“ Erin had an insatiable desire to drink in life,” said Patrick Deegan, her history teacher and basketball coach. “She was one of those people that if there was an activity, she wanted to do it and do well.”

Erin was a great basketball player, and at 6-foot-1, she dominated her opponents when she played for her high school team.

Erin was also an excellent student who took many Advanced Placement classes and contributed to the school newspaper.

“She had a very promising future,” said neighbor Mary Koch.

Erin Peterson is one of the greatest angels in Heaven.

We miss her.

We honor her.

We love her.

We will never forget her.
