In Memory of



Obituary for Judith Berman

Judith “Judi” (Buxbaum) Berman, 70, of East Providence passed away unexpectedly, at home on Friday, December 3rd, 2021. Born in Boston, MA to the late Bert and Bertha (Beck) Buxbaum, Judi enjoyed childhood in Hull, MA with her older sister and parents. Judi was raised in a loving family and was very outgoing and personable and loved getting together with her friends and family or talking with them on the telephone, especially with her mother. Judi would routinely return to Hull to visit with her mother and go to Nantasket beach with her son, Adam.

Judi attended the University of Maine and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and soon thereafter started a career as a Registered Dietician, spending majority of her career at St. Joseph’s Hospital in South Providence, RI. Judi’s love of her alma mater eventually led her to become a devoted fan of the University of Maine’s men’s college hockey team to which she would watch as many games as possible and cheer them on.

One of Judi’s passions in life was to bake, particularly very fudgy brownies. She loved to watch tv and movies, with a fondness for musicals. While initially afraid of dogs, Judi did grow to love them and had a special place in her heart for her two German Shepherds, first Schultzie and then later Skipper or Skipporah as she liked to call him on occasion. Judi also loved to shop, especially at Talbots and Lord & Taylor where she developed a very nice array of clothing for herself.

Judi is survived by her beloved son, Adam Berman and his wife, Sarah of New Jersey; her cherished grandchildren Gabriella “Gabby” and Theodore “Teddy” who always enjoyed their weekly Skype sessions with “Grandma”; her sibling Linda (Buxbaum) Garr and her husband Bill; and her nieces and nephews and friends by whom she will be sorely missed.

Services for Judi will be private. Arrangements are entrusted to the Berarducci Home & Cremation Care Center, Providence, RI. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made in Judi’s honor to “A Wish Come True” [].
