Mrs. Peterman was born March 20, 1930, in Austin, Texas, to the late Albert Woodruff and Bessie House. She remained in Austin for some time, receiving her high school education from Austin High.

Billie and her loving husband and best friend of 70 years, Herbert Peterman, lived in Cleveland for the last 18 years. They are members of Helen Presbyterian Church, where Billie's beautiful voice ringing out in the choir loft will be sincerely missed.

Out of all of the many talents and attributes that Billie possessed, we all know that she would like to be remembered as an artist, self-taught musician, wonderful homemaker, and a very competitive tennis player.

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Peterman was preceded in death by her son, Mark Peterman, and a sister, Joy Yates.

She is survived by her husband, Herbert Peterman of Cleveland; daughter and son-in-law, Kitrina (Jake) Asuit of Cleveland; three grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
