Christine Dietz

Christine “Chris” Dietz, 74, a resident of Hopkinton for 34 years, passed away peacefully March 2 surrounded by loved ones. Born in Springfield in 1950, she was the daughter of the late Helen and Joseph Closta. Her siblings included an older brother, Edward (now passed), and a younger sister, Jocelyn. She was married to Kenneth Dietz for 36 years. She was the loving mother of Alexander and Stephen Dietz.

Chris put herself through college, receiving a degree from Boston University, and later took evening courses at Harvard to improve her skills. Chris worked as a software engineer for a number of years at DEC and EMC. As the jobs moved elsewhere, she retrained herself to be a medical biller working for local hospitals. She retired at the age of 67.

Chris had a passion for local politics and was a supporter of the Democratic party, serving as a member of the Hopkinton Democratic Town Committee for years. Chris lived to help others in any way she could. She enjoyed traveling, with a high point of touring the south of France in 2022. For her, a glass of wine with a lobster on a Friday was always a favorite. Above all, she enjoyed spending time with her friends and extended family.

She was always a strong and determined independent woman. She is missed.
