Pamelia Ann (Fife) Fifield
Pamelia Ann (Fife) Fifield, of Canterbury, died Friday, December 18, 2020, at home with family by her side. Ann was born August 16, 1930, in Concord, the daughter of Clarence and Mary (Glines) Fife. Following graduation from Tilton-Northfield High School, Ann attended UNH where she studied horticulture.
Ann moved to Buffalo, NY, where she worked as a hospital photographer taking pictures throughout the hospital, including the maternity ward, operating room, and wherever else necessary. She enjoyed traveling and spent the summer of 1950 touring Europe.
Ann returned to Canterbury and married Stuart Fifield in 1956. Ann and Stuart owned and operated Windswept Farm. She was the office manager at Telecable/Continental Cablevision/Comcast for more than 25 years until her retirement in 1998. Ann's interest in keeping current with communications technology continued into her nineties; it was not unusual to receive a call, text, email or Facebook message from her on her Smartphone.
Ann grew up at Grand View Farm, working hard and enjoying friendships from all generations. Her involvement in 4-H began in her youth, she enjoyed a trip to Chicago, and continued as a leader and mentor until late in life. Ann was deeply involved in her community, belonging to most groups and committees. She was a lifelong member of the Canterbury United Community Church where she was an active participant, her passions were the choir and the flower committee. Ann was quite involved with the Canterbury Fair, establishing the Frappe Bar with her husband Stuart. She was pleased to be a member of the Associated Women of NH Farm Bureau and found great satisfaction with her involvement in several large projects.
The annual family vacation at Goose Rocks Beach was a highlight for more than six decades.
Ann's welcoming presence made her a friendly face in the community, her gracious heart and love for her family were encompassed by her quiet strength and endurance.
She will be missed by her daughter, Mary Witschonke and her daughters, Alison and Catherine of Canterbury; son David Fifield (predeceased) and his wife, Melanie and their children, Calvin, Alana and Gwenyth of Moultonborough; son, Tom and his wife, LeAnne and their children, Maegan and Thomas of Franklin; son, Peter and his wife, Wendy and their daughters, Hillary, Naomi, Tara, Peta, Claire and Brooke of Franklin; sister Ruth (Wayne) Mann of Canterbury; brother Peter (Valarie) Fife of Canterbury; and many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
