The Escapees RV Club announced today (June 13) the passing of co-founder Kay Peterson, aged 90, in Livingston, Texas. She and her late husband, Joe Peterson, founded the club in 1978, and continued to serve Escapees members until 1990 when leadership of the club was passed to their daughter, Cathie Carr, and her husband Bud.
From writing and publishing the club’s early newsletters, in the 1970s and 80s, to advising the current board of directors in her later years, Peterson maintained a strong connection to the club and its members.
Her grandson, and Escapees RV Club president, Travis Carr, described Peterson perfectly: “While this news is deeply saddening, we must all remember that Kay lived one of the fullest lives any 90-year-old could ever hope for. She accomplished every goal she set for herself, and her every dream has been realized.”
