Josephine (Josee) Peterson
Celebrating the life of Josephine (Josee) Peterson. She was a loving wife, wonderful mother and grandmother. She passed away on June 6th, 2020 at age 77, at home, surrounded by her family, in Scappoose, Oregon, after a brave fight with cancer.
Josee was born in Luxemburg on March 6th, 1943. She graduated from Dental school and had a long career as a dental technician.
She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Kendall 'Pete' Peterson and her three children and three grandchildren. Josee loved to read, travel to Hawaii, spend time at the Oregon coast, watch movies and shows. Josee had a green thumb and enjoyed working in her backyard growing her garden and lovely flowers. She would sit in her backyard swing as often as she could listening to the songs of the birds and the leaves of the huge maple tree, rustling in the wind. Josee had a fondness for birds she fed along with the family of squirrels, who would stop by to feed on the bird seeds dropped to the ground. She would call each of the squirrels 'Fritzie'. She had a great love for the outdoors.
One of her favorite bucket list items was the train trip she took across Canada with her lady friends, a few years back. Another special memory was her cruise/train trip to Alaska with Pete. She will be missed very much by all who knew and loved her.
