Remembering Beth Deare

Friends and former colleagues of Beth Deare gathered at WGBH over the weekend to celebrate the life of the award-winning producer who died in a fire at her home in Newton in February.

Deare was remembered at the event by more than 400 people including her friend (and former “Chronicle’’ producer ) Joyce Ferriabough, her sister Lynn DuVal Luse, City Councilor Ayanna Pressley, WGBH’s Eric Jackson and Karen Holmes Ward, and Mary Fifield, president of Bunker Hill Community College, where Deare was an instructor.

Deare’s family has set up the Beth Deare Memorial Fund to help children follow in her footsteps in the arts.
