In Memoriam: Patricia Rene Peters

October 28, 2015

Middlebury notes the death of staff member Patricia Rene Peters, 50, who died Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015, at her home in Middlebury.

Peters worked as a Cook on the Middlebury campus since December of 2006.  Atwater Commons Chef and Catering Manager Ian Martin remembered her as “a consummate debater and intellect. She roamed the kitchen, talking and bantering with her peers constantly. She was well liked by many students and always looked out for their best interest.”  Martin also recalled that she was “blazingly witty, wicked smart and driven to be more than ‘just’ a cook,” as evidenced by her continuing educational studies and achievements.

No funeral arrangements have been announced, but those who wish to make a donation in Peters's memory may do so to the HOPE Food Bank (
