In Memory

Judy Rotter (Weil 🌹)

Judith Ellen Weil (Rotter). On Tuesday, December 31, 2019, Judith Ellen Weil died at home just as she wished, surrounded by her husband of 45 years and children. Beloved daughter of Harry and Taube Rotter and sister of Pam Lazarus. She was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She met her soulmate, Jimmy, in college in Boston and the two married in 1975. Together, they raised their daughter and son in Scarsdale, NY where they lived since 1978. She taught in the alternative school at Eastchester High School for a number of years. She also served as PTA President, performed endless volunteer work in schools and funded scholarships for countless people she met throughout her career. Dedicated to making life better for everyone, Judy accepted every person as they were and welcomed them without caring about their social, economic or religious standing. Judy was an avid reader of The New York Times and loved to relax and collect shells on the beach in Miami. Judy gave everything of herself and was beloved by all. As many people were there to help Judy heal, she, in turn, healed others. Judy is survived by her husband, Jimmy Weil; children Mandy (Seth) Lax and Marc Weil; grandchildren Coco and Leo Lax; sister Pam Lazarus; a niece and a nephew. In lieu of flowers, please perform an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for a stranger or a friend. If you wish to make a contribution, please make it to White Plains Hospital Foundation in honor of Judy Weil.

The request - in lieu of flowers - to please do a spontaneous and unsoliticited act of kindness for a stranger - is so beautiful. A lovely testament to lovely Judy.

Judy and I were neighbors on Keating in Lincolnwood.  46 years ago she married JImmy and I married Doug.  Both men were from New York.  At that  time she was living in Scarsdale and Doug and I were living in NYC.  However Dougs parents lived in Maramoncek  New York which is next to Scarsdale.( just like lincolnwood and Skoke).   Doug and I would visit his parents every Sunday so one Sunday, before we had children,  Judy picked me up at his parents house and we took a ride ........ lol.  .... Both of us got stoned, and not being  from New York we got lost!!!!  LOL. Had to ask for directions from everyone we did not want to ask!!!! Was my best and last memory !!!   I had talked to Judy from time to time, but had no idea she was sick... My heart goes out to her family.

I am deeply shocked and saddened at hearing of Judy's passing. We had some correspondence via e-mails about five years ago after not being in touch for over 45 years. She felt that she was blessed in her life and seemed very happy in every way.What a lovely person she was! I hope  to meet her again someday, somewhere

Reading Judy’s memorial profile reflects clearly to me what I learned of her as a person while attempting to plan what would have and should have been our 50th junior high reunion. She put a great deal of time, effort, and heart into it. I am most grateful and deeply saddened.

Oh, What sad news.  Judy has always been one of my favorites from my youth with our special connection of our Dad's both knowing each other from the Jewelry industry they were both a part of in Downtown, Chicago.  We reconnected again while planning a potential 50th reunion, as Steve mentioned.   I feel very sad I never had the chance to hug her and say how much I appreciated our talks when we were planning.   It felt like we hadn't skipped a beat.  I'll always remember her sweet smile, easy laugh and warm heart.

It really is a small world. My daughter lives in NYC and is very good friends with a woman who grew up next to Judy and her family in Scarsdale. One time a few years ago, when Anna, my daughter was visiting her friend in the hospital in the city, Judy was also there. They started talking and one thing led to another..."Where did you grow up... where are your parents from etc" Anna called me right then and there and Judy and I spoke on the phone. It was amazing to hear her voice. She sounded exactly the same. It was through my daughter that I heard about Judy's death. I will always remember Judy for being a good friend and especially to Norm Matthew who she kept in touch with all these years and supported him in his illness.
