RIO GRANDE CITY / MISSION - Diana Rose Payne Peterson, 74, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

Diana was born on August 31, 1942, at Fort Ringgold in Rio Grande City, Texas, to Henry Chesley Payne and Eleanor E. Dahl. She and her sister Evelyn grew up in Rio Grande City and Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Known for her entertaining sense of humor, she was quite shy in her youth. Yet even as a child, she had a facetious streak that would sometimes emerge from behind those beautiful blue eyes and innocent smile. Throughout her life, she maintained a sweet and genuine demeanor that won the trust and hearts of her friends. She loved the Lord, and she was ever faithful. Her signature gift of joy, laughter, and joking around will never be forgotten.

After graduating from Rio Grande City High School in 1960 and working at Tide Chemical in Edinburg, Texas, she was having coffee with a friend at Don Diego's Cafe in Edinburg when Bob Peterson and Milton Mead walked in - Milton was impressed with Diana's friend and invited her out on a date, so Bob invited Diana to go with them. Fast forward one year, Diana married Robert Arvid Peterson, the love of her life, on May 6, 1967 at First Baptist Church in Edinburg, Texas. Diana earned her B.A. from Pan American University in 1973.

Diana and Bob raised their two daughters, DeAnn Aleen and Adri Ann in Rio Grande City. A woman of faith and the heart of her family, Diana shaped her girls' spirituality by leading a Christ-centered life. She was among the charter members of St. John United Methodist Church in Rio Grande City, where she taught Sunday School and was president of United Methodist Women. She loved reading the Bible and made its teaching the center of her life. Diana loved to read, write, sew, play dominoes, fuss over her kids & hubby, brag on her kids & hubby, and just enjoyed life to its fullest. Diana adored her three grandsons, and they were her pride and joy.

After the couple's retirement in 2014, they built a home in League City, Texas, to be closer to their grandsons.

Diana was very active in her community, serving as a volunteer at McAllen Medical Hospital in McAllen and Starr County Memorial Hospital in Rio Grande City. She served on the Parent Teacher Organization at Immaculate Conception School and was a member of the Band Boosters with Rio Grande City High School. She was a community volunteer through her memberships with the GFWC Florence J. Scott Study Club and the Texas Delta Theta Master of Beta Sigma Phi. She was ever faithful to Rio Grande City High School and continued her high school friendships as a member of the Golden Rattlers.

Diana is survived by her loving husband Robert A. Peterson, daughters DeAnn (Jonathan) Cohrs and Adri (Ronald) Smith, grandsons Andrew, Preston and Benjamin Smith, sister Evelyn (Rolando) Alaniz, numerous nieces and nephews, and sisters-in-law Tissa (James†) Peterson and Karen (David†) Peterson. She is preceded in death by her parents.

Visitation for friends and family was at Sanchez Funeral Home, 301 E 2nd Street, Rio Grande City, Texas 78582, on Monday, September 26, 2016, from 2-9pm, with a Prayer Service at 7pm, led by Janet West, Associate Pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church - McAllen and a eulogy by Diana's grade school and lifelong friend, Ernestina Trevino. Funeral services will be at St. John United Methodist Church, 109 N FM 3167, Rio Grande City, Texas 78582, on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, at 11am, and will be presided over by Pastor Emerson Villegas and Pastor Bob Alderman, and eulogies by longtime friends Joyce Obst and Arnoldo Zarate. Pallbearers include her nephews Robert R. Alaniz, James Kent Peterson, Xavier E. Perez, Lance A. Peterson, Guy E. Peterson, Daren R. Peterson, Jason E. Perez and grandsons Andrew and Preston Smith. Honorary pallbearers are Rolando Alaniz, Roel R. Smith, Richard N. Cohrs, Mike Alaniz, John Cooksey, Ryan C. Peterson, Ricky Ingram and Paul Obst.

6063. “Obituaries,” David Ray Peterson, The Monitor, McAllen, TX, September 17, 2013, 10.
David Ray Peterson, 65, passed away on Sunday, September 8, 2013, in Verona, Regione del Veneto, Italy. David was born to Dorothy (Rusk) and Arvid Verner Peterson on February 16, 1948, in Rio Grande City, Starr County, Texas. He and his wife of forty-three years, Karen Boykin Peterson, made their home in Mission, Texas.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, at St. John's Episcopal Church in McAllen. There will also be a Celebration of Life in College Station on Saturday, October 26, with time and place pending.

David is survived by Karen and their three sons, Lance Arvid, his wife Marcela, and grandchildren Carmen and David Peterson Cardenas of Colima, Colima, Mexico; Daren Ray, his wife Jennifer, of Houston; and Ryan Clay of Mission; a brother, Robert Arvid Peterson, his wife Diana, of Mission; Tissa Peterson, wife of brother James (who preceded him in death), and numerous devoted nieces and nephews. He was also preceded in death by his parents.

David is a 1966 graduate of Rio Grande City High School and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration at
Texas A&M University in College Station in 1970. At A&M, he was a member of the fightin' Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets Air Force Squadron 1 (Huslin' One), where he made many lifelong friends. He served the squadron as executive officer his senior year. After graduation, he was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He received training in Munitions and Nuclear Weapons at Lowry AFB, Denver, Colorado. His first assignment was with the 83rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron of Air Defense Command (ADC), Loring AFB, Maine, where he was awarded the Air Force Meritorious Service Award. He then served thirteen months of duty at Kunsan AFB in South Korea, where, as a 1st Lieutenant, he served as Munitions Officer in charge of nuclear weapons, munitions loading, and missile maintenance. Again, he earned the Air Force Meritorious Service Award for outstanding service in Korea. His last assignment was at Little Rock AFB, Arkansas, where he served as Wing Weapons Safety Officer as a Captain.

After four years of active service to his country, David returned to the Rio Grande Valley to work with his father, brothers, friends, and partners at Starr Produce Company from 1974 through 2005, working in a variety of capacities, including being manager of Los Puertos Farms, head of the International Division, and eventually serving as president of the company. He was key in the expansion of the company's international operations in Tecoman, Colima, and Campeche, Campeche, Mexico.

Along with son Lance and partners Cesar Ramirez Guerra and Nazario Rodriguez Guerra, David bought the Tecoman, Colima operation and founded the company Red Starr, which David served as CEO until his death. The company produces and exports honeydews, personal watermelons, and papayas to the United States, Canada, Japan, and Europe. He was also a founder of Tex Starr Distributing LLC, which was a partnership between Super Starr International and Fresh Tex Produce (Kenny Alfred and Jesus Falcon) in Alamo, Texas. Tex Starr Distributing handled all sales of papayas for Red Starr, as well as honeydews in the United States and Canada. Under his leadership, the company developed the Royal Star Papaya, a unique variety of papaya categorized as a specialty fruit. The Mexican Papaya Association presented the Outstanding Papaya Grower of Mexico Award to David in 2010. Lance stated, "Dad's years of experience and vision were the catalyst that helped Red Starr become a major producer of honeydews, personal watermelons and Royal Star papayas out of Mexico."

David was a lifelong supporter of Texas A&M University and was actively involved in Texas AgriLife Extension projects in College Station and Weslaco. He served as president of the Texas Vegetable Association and was a member of the Texas Produce Association, serving on the Exporters Committee. David was also on the board and was a past president of the Rio Grande Growers Coop in Starr County. He served as a trustee on the school board of the Sharyland I.S.D. in Mission. His interest and encouragement of young people was demonstrated by the Texas-Mexico Connection in Agriculture trips, which he helped organize and conduct for Texas 4-Hers and Collegiate 4-Hers, who travelled into Mexico to learn about all facets of the production and shipping of produce. He was also a faithful supporter and sponsor of the Starr County Fair Association, which promotes youth of the county and provides scholarships.

David and Karen were very active members of St. Peter and St. Paul Episcopal Church in Mission, where he served as a member of the Bishop's Committee, as an usher, and as a Cursillista. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Peter and St. Paul Episcopal Church, 2310 N. Stewart Rd., Mission, Texas 78582.
