Jean Peters

Obituary of Jean Peters

Jean was a very caring woman with a heart of gold. Since she was young, she had a great love of reading and history, and was always thrilled when she received a book as a gift. Jean treasured the written word, be it from the novels she kept or the letters she would exchange with her father when she was young. When she grew older, she passed on writing letters and chose instead to call her friends whenever she could, greatly enjoying the voices and stories they would share.

Jean was fortunate enough to meet the love of her life, Pete, when she was only in high school, and they remained inseparable since. After their wedding, Jean went on to become a dental hygienist, having been inspired by her Uncle Bob’s career as a dentist. She found joy in caring for people, be it her family, her friends, or the countless people whose teeth she kept healthy. In her spare time, Jean enjoyed knitting, creating beautiful things for those around her. Jean did her best to spread joy and compassion as much as she could, both in her professional and personal lives.
