Clare V. Peterson passed away January 25, 2021 at the age of 87 after a period of failing health.

Clare loved telling people that she had lived in her house in Acton, MA for 86 years! She was an avid reader and worked as a librarian for the Acton School Department. Upon her retirement she and her husband, Warren (Pete) Peterson traveled the country in their camper and played bingo with a wide group of friends.

Clare was predeceased by her husband Pete and is survived by her daughter Barbara Winter of Barrington, NH. The family wishes to thank The Wentworth Home of Dover, NH for their unwavering dedication in caring for Clare.

Barbara - I was sorry to learn of Clare’s passing. I know you will miss her, but hope your memories give you comfort and pleasure. I enjoyed getting to know both of you at the Wentworth Home, and am attaching a picture of our moms, and three other residents, proudly displaying Christmas ornaments that they had made in December 2019.

My best - Jan Papatones Crowley

I just learned of Clare's death and I feel like a whole era has passed. Barbara, I'm so sorry for your loss and I'm glad Clare is not suffering any more. I have so many wonderful memories of spending time with Pete and Clare. I lost touch when I went to Hawaii to care for Aunt Lea, but I carried Pete and Claree in my heart. RIP, Clare. You must have received the warmest, brightest, most wonderful welcome in heaven. Cindy
