Gifts & Memorial Donations

Jean W. Peterson, age 86, passed away on August 21, 2023 in Williamsburg, VA. She was the wife of Clifford T. Peterson, Jr., the love of her life, who preceded her in death.

Jean was a nurse who cared for many. She enjoyed traveling the world with Clif and she took a memorable trip with each one of her grandchildren, something that was very special to her. She also enjoyed watercolor painting and was so proud when Windsor Meade, where she resided in Williamsburg for nine years, asked to display her artwork.

She is survived by her daughter Laura and her husband Mark Kline of Fulshear, Texas and her daughter Pam and her husband John Dannon of Williamsburg, Virginia. Her grandchildren include Sarah Kline and her husband Ben Thesing of Little Rock, Arkansas; Jeffrey Kline and his wife Christian of Edmond, Oklahoma and their daughter and Jean’s great-granddaughter Ruby; Lyndsey Dannon of Williamsburg, Virginia; Mitchell Dannon of Williamsburg, Virginia; and Olivia Dannon of New York, New York.

Jean will join Clif in eternal rest at Quantico National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, thank you for considering Literacy for Life for a donation in Jean’s memory. Jean was a tutor there for years and touched many lives.

    Jean was the oldest cousin on mother's side of the family. I was 2nd youngest, so we didn't interact too much because of age and geography. She grew up on the West coast and me on the East coast. I always admired her work ethic and her duty to her family and community. When I got married, she gave me a bridal shower, and was so sweet to do that for me. She tried to help me to learn how to be a new wife and do things such as cook and organize. Let me just say, she was much better at that than I was. In my Mom's later years, she lived much closer to Jean than me, and I was so grateful they had a strong bond. Mom would spend more Christmases with Jean and her family than ours. She didn't want to travel over the holidays, plus, she loved those holidays at Jean's house. I am forever grateful to her for making my Mom's last years on Earth so special. Much love to Pam and her family, as they now navigate life without Jean by their side. To Laura's family I wish safe travels and much comfort as they too say goodbye to Jean. May God, who watches over us and hears us when we pray, grant you everlasting rest.
