She was engaged to Benone Halinga in 1999, when she gave birth to a baby boy that sadly passed away prematurely. They moved to Anchorage, Alaska, where together they married had 3 beautiful daughters ~ Cristina, Andreea, and Veronica. After a few years in Alaska, the family made a big move to Boise, Idaho, where they bought a house and began building a life. She started working at Walmart and was a very loyal and hard-working employee and also met many longtime friends along the way.
She also attended Oliver Finley School of Cosmetology, where she became a licensed esthetician and did what she loved. Over the years, Petra worked a number of jobs in order to give her daughters a comfortable and enjoyable childhood. In November of 2019, she got a job at the United States Postal Service, where she worked very hard and met many more friends. She was described as always being the maternal figure in her work environment and showed so much passion. Petro was the kind of woman who was always willing to help and was always kind and considerate to everyone she met. Everyone who met her instantly felt like they had a friend for life. Petro always had kind things to say and always treated everyone with respect. Loving, sweet, and beautiful are the words that come to mind when we all think about Petro. She always had a big heart for animals and gifted her daughters with many pets. She was a perfect mother, daughter, wife, friend, and much more.
Although she was taken away from this earth too soon, she will always be watching over everyone with her mother and child by her side.
