Jens (John) PETERSEN

July 22, 1919 – Oct. 9, 2005

Jens (John) passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Oda, daughter Esther (Bryant Hollins), sons Eric (Barb), Harley (Pam), foster daughter Mary Jeffries and nine grandchildren. Jens moved to the Buffalo Creek area in 1956 where he ranched until 1974. He supplemented his income by working in the lumber industry for Ainsworth Lumber and later for Weldwood. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Fischer Place would be greatly appreciated.
