It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Judith L Braunston, aged 80, who passed away on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 6 am. Born on July 31, 1942, at Einstein Hospital in Philadelphia, Judi was a longtime resident of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She was married to Morris Braunston and had two children, Debbi Kalstein and Peter Braunston.
Judi was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, and friend who had an unwavering commitment to her family and her community. Her life was filled with joy, laughter, and compassion, and she touched the lives of everyone she met.
Judi was an active member of her community, and her passion for politics and social justice led her to become a Case Manager for Peter Kostmayer, followed by working for the EPA. She was an advocate for the environment and spent her life working to make a difference in the world.
Judi had a zest for life and enjoyed spending time with her friends. Her dearest friend was Deborah Hochberg, who helped introduce her to her husband Morris. They were sisters from another mother and traveled to Maine together for many years, participating in every activity together. She also had a group of friends called the Diversified Dames who would do everything together. Later in life, Judi made new friends at the Province of Southampton, including Arlene Brown, whom she counted among her best.
Judi's memory will be cherished by all who knew her, especially her daughter Debbi, son Peter, and their respective families. Her daughter Debbi’s husband Ron and grandson Paul and Peter’s wife, Laura, and her grandsons, Morgan and Bryce, close friends John, Kenny, and Alex, among other foster Stephen Weiss and “adopted” children along the way will always remember her love and kindness.
Judi's legacy will live on through her family, friends, and the community she served. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
