Obituary of Judith E. Berlin
Judith E. Berlin, 81, or “Judy” as she was affectionately known by many peacefully entered into eternal life surrounded by her son on Friday, December 29, 2023 at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady.
Born in Schenectady, NY, she was the daughter of the late Harold R. and Doris Y. Missimer Shirk and the beloved wife of the late Raymond Berlin. Judy was a graduate of the former Linton High School and continued her education at Union College, both in Schenectady.
Mrs. Berlin had been a Draftswoman for the State of NY and later became a Teacher’s Aide at Ichabod Crane School District in Valatie where she worked with Special Education students and took great joy following her retirement tutoring those with special needs.
She loved doing puzzles, Wordle, cross-stitch and trips to the ocean at Wells Beach, Maine.
She is survived by her devoted son Jason D. Berlin and was predeceased by her dear sister Cynthia “Cindy” Sillars.
