August 16, 1934 ~ January 18, 2021 (age 86)


On Monday January 18th, 2021, Kathleen Peters, loving mother and grandmother passed away at the age of 86.  She was born on August 16th, 1934 in Cleveland, OH. She graduated High School in 1952. She married Warren Fittro and they moved to Libby, MT in 1957. Together they had 5 children, Bob, Russel, Ramona, Georgia, & Colleen. They settled in Troy, MT in 1973 and bought Jack’s Cafe which Kathy ran for the next 44 years. She had many loyal customers, shake-a-day coffee drinkers, and friends at the cafe. She married Al Peters in 1981 and they spent many happy years on Savage Lake.

Kathy had many passions. She was very adventurous. She was an avid fisherman and would take off and go camping on a whim. Traveling for bowling was one of her favorite pastimes. She was a 50 year member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She loved animals and always had a furry friend by her side. Her breakfast, Prime Rib Saturday nights and lunch specials will be greatly missed. Her kids and grandkids were her pride and joy. She was caring and looked out for everyone and made sure nobody went without.

 Kathy wants you to know “Just order the special” and “Don’t ask for a menu”.

Kathy is preceded in death by her husbands, Warren Fittro and Al Peters; as well as many loyal customers she considered family.


She is survived by her 5 children Robert Fittro, Fernley, NV; Russel Lefthand, Ronan, MT; Ramona Baney (Don), Libby, MT; Georgia Wallace (Scott), Hot Springs, MT; Colleen Cox (Jeff) Fernley, NV;  and many beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren.
