Dianne Chatfield

March 27, 2022


The extended Chatfield family is deeply saddened by the recent death of Dianne Helen Chatfield on March 27, 2022 at her home in Peterborough NH. Dianne was born in Haverhill, NH in December of 1949 as Dianne Carver when her birth family lived in East Thetford, VT. Dianne is predeceased by her brother David. She leaves her beloved children, Seth Chatfield (wife, Sarah) and Sarah Chatfield-Seaver (husband, Jared), her beloved grandchildren, Ryan and Remy, her siblings Dale (wife, Kathleen), Donna, Dana (wife, Deborah), and Darren, David’s widow, Eva, her ex-husband Bill Chatfield (partner, Yvonne), and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Dianne graduated from Easthampton (MA) high school, and attended Berkshire Community College as an art major. She moved to Boston after college where she met Bill. At that time, she was fondly known as the “finabulous buttun.” Shortly after they met, they moved to Brookline, then Weymouth, Braintree and Marshfield until they and their children moved to Peterborough in 1981. Her passions were her grandchildren and family, her cat Sweet Pete, painting, birds, wildlife, gardening, music, reading, poetry, baking for her family and friends, social justice, generosity to others, and the wonder of being alive.

A celebration of Dianne Chatfield's life will be held on April 30, 1-4 PM at Bass Hall (Monadnock Center for History and Culture), 19 Grove St. in Peterborough, open to all.  We encourage anyone whose life she touched to come and see some of her art & photos of her life and share your memories and thoughts.

Bass Hall’s current Covid protocol:  Regardless of vaccine status, masking is encouraged when inside if not eating or drinking (we will have light refreshments, doors will likely stay open). We will have plenty of masks available for anyone who needs one.

To further honor her memory, donations may be made in Dianne’s name to BLM Global, Southern Poverty Law Center, Tourette’s Syndrome Association, or a charity of choice.
