She was born on December 15th, 1976 in Killeen, TX to Rodney and Deanna Peterson. After being in Texas where her father was stationed for the first 2 years of life, she then moved back to La Crosse, WI where her parents are from and lived the rest of her life in the La Crosse area.
Mae had two children, Ariel and Quentin. She was a supportive and caring mother.
Mae was a free spirited soul. She loved spending time with family and friends. She was blessed with a few great life-long friends to have by her side. She loved spending time outdoors. She also loved crafting, shopping, and music (especially listening to live music). She was a huge animal lover and they always held a special place in her heart. She was intelligent and fierce in all that she did.
