Sorry to hear about your husband.
I've got a couple of peach trees, dad had many. We're in Maryland and don't do anything to them for winter except clean up fallen fruit and leaves.
In late winter/early spring, I spray with dormant oil spray to smother pests. You have to do this before the buds pop.
One other thing, just keep an eye on the tree trunk for "oozing." Peaches are prone to borers, or at least around here they are, and a borer will kill a young peach tree in a hurry.
