Kami Petersen

June 21, 1975 — July 1, 2017


Kami Michele Logan Petersen, 42 died from depression, drug addiction and suicide on July 1st, 2017. Kami was born on June 21, 1975 to Carma (Acel) Woodard and Mike Logan. She married childhood love Scotty Petersen on Sept 17, 1994 and they remained friends throughout the years.

Kami was a kind, generous and loving soul. Her feisty personality matched her beautiful red hair. She was truly unforgettable. She was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone that needed it.  She had an eye and a special flair for interior design and always had her tools handy to fix whatever needed fixed, sometimes with a little or a lot of ingenuity.

Kami was loved by so many, yet she always felt so undeserving of that love. She loved her children very much and fought hard for years to be here with them but the battle was just too much. Our beautiful and beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend chose July 1, 2017 to leave her earthly home. Though we are in deep pain with her loss we are grateful she hurts no more and has found the peace she searched so long to have.

Kami is survived by her parents, Acel and Carma Woodard; children, Sierra Petersen (Alex Price), Karsyn Magera and Chandler Yamada; life partner and longtime love, David Yamada; granddaughter, Azlyn Kami Price; sisters, Amanda (Dave) Weiler and Annie Woodard; brother, Eric (Kim) Logan; grandfather, Ronald Daybell; grandmother, Olive Woodard; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceded in death by grandmother, Betty Daybell; special cousin, Jenny and Mike Logan.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday July 8th at 5pm. Please bring your special memories of Kami so we can share them with her children. To honor our beautiful Kami, hug your loved ones tight and never miss an opportunity to show and share your love.
