Patricia Ann Simon was born on February 24, 1921 in Milwaukee, the daughter of Bernard and Anna (Doll) Simon. On October 16, 1941 she married Oswald Peters at St. Henry Catholic Church. He preceded her in death on May 27, 2003.  Music was her passion. Early in her music career she sang with her sisters on Poynette station WIBU and WTTN in Watertown. Recordings of these sessions still exists on 78 RPM records. In 1937 she joined the "Rainbow Girls Orchestra". Pat sang, played guitar and tenor saxophone. In 1940 Pat started playing for "Dave and the All American Girls" Orchestra. She met Oswald (Ozzie) Peters on June 16th, 1940, while playing at the Hollywood Gardens in Rubicon. This is where she met Ozzie, who was making a beer delivery. He won her heart and they were married 62 years when Ozzie passed away.   When asked what she is most proud of in her life, Pat was quick to answer. She was proud of her wonderful family. She was also very proud of her musical accomplishments, patience and ability to teach others how to play guitar. Even in her later years, as her golden voice diminished, she carried a tune in her heart and mind while playing her little chord organ. Pat was a member of St. Henry Catholic Church where she was a former choir member. She was a 50+ year member and past president of Watertown American Legion Auxiliary  unit # 189, AARP Chapter 3056, Christian Mothers and Altar Confraternity, Catholic Knights Branch 120, Plattdeutscher Auxiliary, Watertown Senior Center and the Senior Center Chorus.
