Lynette Marlene was born May 10, 1950 in Norfolk, Nebraska to Herman and Ida (Boll) Carstens. As a child growing up in Winside, Lynette took piano and tapdancing lessons. The Carstens family enjoyed traveling together to the Black Hills and Colorado. She graduated from Winside High School.
Lynette dated and married her high school sweetheart, Dave Peterson, on August 31, 1969. The couple was blessed with three children, Amy, Matt, and Jason. They later divorced.
Outside of work, Lynette enjoyed taking trips with friends to go shopping or out to eat, but her favorite places to be were wherever she could cheer on her beloved grandchildren, from the racetrack or the field or the stage.
Lynette loved to visit with people and spent her adult life working in customer service at Kmart, Menards, The Meadows and most recently the Dollar Tree. She touched many lives and will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her children Amy (Tony) Vollbrecht of Stanton, Matt Peterson of Sioux City, and Jason (Elizabeth) Peterson of Aurora, grandchildren Sara (Grant) King, Parker Vollbrecht, Kaleb McQuillan, Gabriel, Evangeline, Josiah, Landon, and Lorelei Peterson, brother Gaylen (Michelle) Carstens of Omaha, nephews Alex Carstens and Jesse (Nikki) Carstens, and great niece Scout Olivia Carstens.
Lynette was preceded in death by her parents, and infant grandson Connor Peterson.
