On December 4, 2022, Luetta Gay (McDaniel) Peters left this earth to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior, Jesus. She was born in English, Indiana, on September 4, 1944.

Luetta lived in southern Indiana most of her adulthood, except for 8 years in Florida. She graduated from New Albany High School and retired from American Commercial Barge Line.
Luetta loved to travel. She and Don visited all 50 states and 12 foreign countries. She was an avid quilter, making over 100 quilts. Luetta made quilts for family and friends but most were for charity. She won awards for her quilts. Her favorite quilt was made with fabric from dresses from her Aunt Luly and grandmother, Etta, who she was named after.
