PETERSON, Jeanne Anne
PETERSON - Jeanne Anne Of Normandy Park, WA, died January 2, 2018, at Highline Hospital, with family at her bedside. She was 82 years old. Jeanne was born in 1935 in Buffalo, NY. She was the daughter of John and Mary Robbins. Jeanne married Dr. William G. Peterson on June 28, 1958. Together they raised six children: Kathleen Peterson (Steve) of Normandy Park, WA, Ginny Peterson of Broomfield, CO, Bill Peterson (Karen) of Sun Prairie, WI, John Peterson (Michele) of Stevenson Ranch, CA, Mike Peterson (deceased), and Tom Peterson (Katie) of Naperville, IL. Jeanne is survived by twelve grandchildren: Christian, Caroline, Odaine, Tasi-Jo, Cathriona, Joriel, Noah, Ben, Nick, Mike, Jane, and Julia. She is also survived by her brother, Jim (Debra) of Cheektowaga, NY. Jeanne was a Registered Pediatric Nurse at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, NY, and later the Registrar at Edgewood High School in Madison, WI. She lived for many wonderful years on Cape Cod, in Falmouth, MA. For the last six years of her life, Jeanne resided with her daughter Kathleen and family in Seattle, WA. Most important to Jeanne was the love of family and friends. Her generosity, humor, and concern for others enriched the lives of so many. She was happiest when her home was full of people and chaos. She will be dearly missed. We take comfort that she is reunited with her beloved husband Bill, son Michael, her parents and her brother, Jack; it was her greatest wish in her later years. Memorial gifts may be made to the Dementia Society of America (https://www.dementiasociety.org). A memorial service will be held in Falmouth, MA later this year.
