Mary Zoe Petersen
On February 23, 2019 we lost a long-time community trailblazer, Mary Zoe (Petrik) Petersen. She graduated Jefferson High school and Lewis and Clark College. In 1960, married Larry Petersen and they had two children Eric and Zoe Ann. The family moved to Gresham, Oregon in 1975. Mary Zoe and Larry were owners of Gresham Optical & Custom Eyes.
Mary Zoe's entire life was spent in service to her family, friends and her beloved community balancing work, life and service to a degree that was truly remarkable. She was recognized by various organizations for her exceptional volunteer work. Those touched by Mary Zoe are invited to her Celebration of Life event on Saturday, April 6th at 2 p.m., Mount Hood Community College Vista Dining Room. Contributions to Mary Zoe's memory are for the Alzheimer's Association Donate to Fight Memorial fund: act.alz.org/donate.
