Sylvia Jean Johnston Peterson

October 19, 1942 — February 6, 2023

Waveland

Sylvia Jean Johnston Peterson, 80, of Waveland, MS, passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, February 6, 2023.

Sylvia was a member of St. Clare Catholic Church. 

She loved cooking, sewing, and spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchild. Later in life, her love of feeding her family and many guests led her to join her son in cooking at his Waveland restaurant, S & B's Bar and Grill, where she's worked for the past 25 years.

Sylvia was preceded in death by her husband, John Daniel Peterson; her parents, Richard and Dorothy Johnston; and her brothers, Richard Johnston Jr. and James Johnston.

She is survived by three children, Karen Nelson, Lisa Parker, and Scott Peterson (Jessica); five grandchildren, Gracyn (James), Zachary, Brandon, Jacob, and Camryn; one great-grandchild, Sutton; and two brothers, Patrick Johnston and Dennis Johnston (Missy). And she was a sweet nanny and meme to many godchildren and others.
