SAUGERTIES-Today we share that we lost our best friend, the love of our lives, our bright shining star. Jolie Peters-Mitnick passed away after midnight November 18th, 2020. Jolie was born in Kingston, N.Y. on March 4, 1992. She was the light that walked into the room. Anyone who knew her, loved her. She attended the Woodstock Day School, Onteora High School and graduated from the New School of Social Research in NYC with a Bachelors of Arts. Jolie was a “foodie”. She worked at Food.com, Epicurious, Delish and other food related websites. She most recently started her own business, Tinker Street Social. Jolie was lucky to travel parts of the world. She gave some of her time to a non-profit organization, Seeds of Africa. She was a spitfire always there to help and share her light. We will miss Jolie’s magic, her laughter, kindness and love. She inspired so many. Jolie had a hard time seeing what the world saw in her. She struggled with great depression. Jolie took her own life. None of us will fully understand the dark shadows in which she walked. For anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide our hearts and prayers are with you. Jolie is survived by her loving parents, Jerry Mitnick and Karin Peters, her brother John Peters, her long time boyfriend GJ Haaland, her “Frenchie” Pickle and Maybel, her mom’s Boston Terrier, a gift from Jolie and GJ. In lieu of flowers, we ask you to donate to any suicide prevention organization. Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of Buono Funeral Service, Inc., in Saugerties. We will celebrate her life sometime in the Spring and will let anyone and everyone know where and when. For now, while we are grieving, her immediate family will say goodbye and honor her in private. Please offer your condolences and memories for Jolie and her family online www.BuonoFuneralService.com. “Jolie, just look over your shoulder, I’ll be there for you.” http://www.lastingmemories.com/jolie-peters-mitnick

Jolie and I had a game we played in the kiddie pool at Zena Rec. We called it “Da Sweepa” I would stride into the pool, calling, “Watch out, it’s da Sweepa!” She would try to scramble away shrieking in pretend alarm, “da Sweepa!” before I caught her under her arms and swept her back and forth in the water. She’d smile her beautiful smile, her face full of delight. I loved the joy to which she seemed to have such easy access. This news saddens me more than I can say. I will always remember Jolie as that beautiful girl.

This Light of a Soul left an eternal glow in so many. I was quite in awe of Jolie as I observed her with all the other children at Zena Rec in the late 90's and early 2000's. She was so incredibly kind to every single other child who came under that pavilion to socialize and play. Her eagerness to bring out a smile or laugh in others intrigued me as she certainly stood out in such a lovely and gently kind way. Every time, throughout the years, I would run into her or see her photo or reference of her from others, a true and real smile would come across my face and heart. She had such a beautiful energy. I especially noticed the bond she had with her father and mother. Let the blessings of her spirit continue to fill all of us. I am so very sorry to her family and friends for this incredible loss. Sending and feeling heartfelt prayers and intentions of peace.

Jolie always made me smile. When she was at our house it just seemed like she belonged there, Brett’s friend and compadre and a person you could love so easily. This is so hard to accept. I’m not sure I ever will.

This is still so hard to believe.
Jolie and I met at The New School in New York City while we were students. She had such a beautiful and vivacious personality and sense of humor. I can’t imagine the pain she was experiencing was so intense that she felt she needed to leave us so soon. My heart breaks for Jolie’s and GJ’s families. Sending my love, prayers and condolences and I hope you all find peace with Jolie’s passing.
Jolie you will be unbelievably missed. Rest In Peace my love.
