Obituary for Jean H. Anderson

Grafton: Jean H. Anderson, 86, passed away November 24, in the beautiful 1740 house where she and her loving husband of 64 years, Dick Anderson, raised their family. Jean also leaves her children, Stephen F. Anderson, Scott M. Anderson and Richard O. Anderson, 7 grandchildren along with countless nieces and nephews.

Jean was raised in Watertown, MA and graduated from Watertown High School and Colby College, where she met her beloved husband, in 1955. Jean and Dick were married in 1956 and moved to Grafton shortly thereafter, where the three Anderson boys were born. Jean was a talented gardener and the grounds of 61 Old Upton Road are a testament to that. A lover of sports, Jean passed on this passion to her boys and raised them to be gracious competitors. She taught Physical Education in the Grafton school system and refereed field hockey and basketball all while selling real estate and raising a family.

In her West Falmouth home, Jean continued gardening, played competitive tennis, and enjoyed swimming at Bowerman’s Beach. Jean had a wide circle of friends accumulated through her various activities over the years in Grafton, West Falmouth and Abaco in the Bahamas. She will be missed dearly.

Please join Jean’s family and friends at a Memorial Service at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Grafton, 3 Grafton Common, on Saturday, November 30th at 1:00. In lieu of flowers, please consider honoring Jean with a donation to The Grafton Land Trust (

Jean was a wonderful friend to our family in our Grafton days; as was her terrific husband Dick. We enjoyed many good times with them. Somehow this world will never be the same without her cheery smiles, wise observations of goings on about the town, and willing acceptance of the goodness of all the different people she met in and around Grafton for many years. She was a gem: pretty, bright, nice, open, active, cheerful, someone you wanted to be your friend. And that she was.

On this Thanksgiving, the Grafton Garden Club has much to be thankful for. In particular the friendship and love of Jean Anderson. On November 24, Jean passed at the age of 86. As an Honorary Life Member of the Grafton Garden Club, Jean was a lover of the good earth, cultivating both the gardens around her gracious home, and cultivating many lasting friendships. On several occasions, Jean opened her home and gardens to GGC members. With every visit to the Willard House, I can visualize how beautifully Jean would decorate the fireplaces for the Holiday Season. With each Plant Sale on the Common, I can picture the impressive perennials Jean would donate and see her selling the plants to raise scholarship money for Grafton students. A Grafton teacher herself, Jean was passionate about helping others. We will miss her.
