Elizabeth Anne "Lisa" Peterson, 46, of Cary, North Carolina passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on November 5th, 2015. Lisa was born on November 10th, 1968 in Long Beach, CA. She married Brian Peterson in 1999 on the beach in Pacific Grove, CA and their family was completed when they welcomed their daughter Megan later that year. A member of the 1986 graduating class of Los Gatos High School in CA, her accomplishments include a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Santa Clara University in 1993, Masters in Accounting from North Carolina State University in 2004, and her work in the hotel industry and as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for KPMG.

She is survived by husband Brian Peterson; daughter Megan Peterson; mother Anne Ledyard Proudfoot of Cary; step brothers Dan Proudfoot (Estelle) of Washington D.C.; Chris Proudfoot of Phoenix, AZ; and beloved extended family and friends. Lisa made family her priority in life. From her incredible home-cooked meals to her unwavering support of family and friends, Lisa was a positive influence and touched many people. An avid reader, she could read multiple books at the same time and kept the public libraries busy. She enjoyed her monthly Bunco night with her neighborhood friends. Lisa was known for her acute memory and razor-sharp wit, dominating anyone brave enough to play Trivial Pursuit or Boggle with her. A celebration of Lisa's life will be Saturday, January 16, 2015 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at The Matthews House, 317 W. Chatham St., Cary, NC 27511.
