Connor Edwin Peterman, infant son of Derek and Ginger Peterman of St. James, MO, passed from this life just as he entered into it at approximately 8:20am on the morning of Friday, February 11, 2022, at MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Columbia, MO.
Connor was preceded in death by his grandfather, Keith Peterman, of Jerome, MO, his great-grandmother Genevieve Southard, of St. James, MO, and his great grandparents Reba and Kenneth Brinkley of Jerome, MO and great grandfather Jim Peterman, of Vienna, MO.

Although he lived only a short while, Connor left an indelible mark upon the lives of his parents, his family, and all who looked upon him during his short time on this earth. He will forever be remembered as his Mom and Dad’s perfect little miracle baby, the apple of his grandparents’ eye, and the guardian angel of those who loved and cherished him.
