Jean Ellen Peterson was born on June 28, 1926, in Sebeka, MN to Alfred and Esther (Olson) Peterson.

Following their marriage, the couple co-owned and operated a grocery store on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis, MN. After a few years they moved to rural Utica where they farmed for many years. Jean worked as the bookkeeper on the farm. Jean was a very active member of Arendahl Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday school, took on many leadership roles and was in the quilting group until 2019. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, baking, sewing, cross stitch and especially spending time with her grandchildren.

The family wishes to give thanks to God for the loving care provided by so many Heartland Hospice workers and volunteers and the prayers, cards, letters, food, and gift of conversation and song given by relatives, friends, and neighbors.
There will be a funeral service for Jean at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at Arendahl Lutheran Church in rural Peterson with Reverend Sarah Walker Brown officiating.

"So thankful to have had the gift of growing up at the farm with Auntie Jean. Countless hours were spent running around the yard, eating her delicious baked goods, playing foosball, hide and seek, and enjoying each other?s company. So many wonderful memories to look back on and smile and be thankful for! May these happy memories carry you all through the days ahead! Love to all from AZ. "
