Jean was predeceased by her parents Marlow and Mary (Kangas) Peterson, and her two brothers Roy and Joel.
Jean was born in Worcester on August 31, 1953, the oldest of eleven children and grew up in Sutton and graduated from Sutton High School.
She enjoyed spending time with her family and enjoyed seeing them all together in one place. For many years she organized family and friends reunions. She loved watching her grandchildren learn and grow with Christ as their Savior. She was very proud of all her children and grandchildren.
As many of you know Jean had a passion for helping others and for many years she was the head cook at Douglas and Portsmouth Camp Meeting. Her life-long dedication to the camp associations is greatly appreciated and she will be missed by many. She was currently a board member of the Douglas Camp Meeting Association in Douglas, MA, where she was working on getting a new stove for the kitchen. We ask that in lieu of flowers a donation in her name be made to the Douglas Camp Meeting Association for a new stove. We also know that there are other charitable causes that are in need so we ask that you follow your heart and make a donation in Jean’s memory to any cause.
A memorial service and Celebration of Life for Jean Poole will be held on Sunday, November 7th at 2pm at Douglas Camp Meeting Association, 21 South Street Douglas, Ma. The service in her memory will begin at 2pm with fellowship and remembrance following. Please bring a story or a memory of Jean to share with everyone.
