E. Jean Sutherland Obituary
Sutherland, E. Jean
E. Jean (Jessop) Sutherland finished her journey on this earth on June 27, 2018 in Fort Myers, FL, a quite peaceful setting with her daughter Karen Jessop by her side. The family was blessed to have Karen caring for mom in her home for the last nine years. Mom enjoyed many of those years and felt comforted knowing that she was never alone. Jean was born July 26, 1927 in Hartford, CT to Charlotte Amalie (Andersen) Petersen and Albert Christian Petersen. She was married for more than 25 years to Edward Walter Jessop. Eventually they settled in Guilford CT. They had four children, Penny Jessop, Peter Jessop, Karen Jessop and Kate (Kathy Jessop) Whitehead. After Jean was widowed, she met and married Donald Ramsey Sutherland and the family grew by two with the addition of Don's two sons, Bob Sutherland and David Sutherland. Jean completed her bachelor's degree while raising four kids and went on to get her Masters in Social Work. She was in private practice as a Jungian Psychoanalyst. Her clients cherished and appreciated her intellect, guidance, and love. Upon retirement, she and Donald became snowbirds and eventually settled in the C-21 Mobile Home Park, Fort Myers, FL. Donald and Jean enjoyed more than 30 years together until his passing nine years ago. Jean will be missed by her six children (and their spouses), six grandchildren (and their spouses) and three great grandchildren. In addition, many dear friends and neighbors, in C-21 and back in Connecticut will miss her as well. Her journey is finished on this earth and her time with her God has begun. There will be a celebration of her life in the winter of 2019. She was a great lady. Jean always had a thing about food, so it seems fitting to suggest that, if you would like to make a donation, you please consider the Gladiolus Food Pantry, Inc., 10511 Gladiolus Dr., Fort Myers, Fl. 33908 or a local food pantry near you.
