Judith A. Burnham

WEST BALDWIN — Judith A. (Lewis) Burnham, 69, formerly of Standish, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home in West Baldwin with family at her side on Thursday, May 17, 2012.

Judy was the first child of Louise Todd and Thomas V. Atkins.

Judy was a dearly loved mother, grandmother and sister. She was an accomplished knitter and quilter, and many family members were privileged to have received beautiful handmade quilts lovingly sewn by her. She gardened and planted beautiful flowers throughout her life and found the preserving and canning of garden vegetables to be particularly rewarding.

Recently, she began designing and creating her own jewelry. This hobby brought her a great deal of joy and satisfaction. Judy was always creating and sharing in countless ways, be it her cooking, her sewing, other crafts, or her love and listening ear.

She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Judy was predeceased by her husband, Clyde E. Burnham III; both parents; and a younger brother, Thomas.

She leaves behind two aunts; and seven siblings, Randolph T. Atkins of Tijeras, N.M., Sandy L. Ellis of New Gloucester, John Hunt and Lewis Hunt of Oxnard, Calif., Rex W. Lewis of Raymond, Craig N. Lewis of Standish and Bonnie T. Lewis of Raymond; children, Kimberly L. Metcalf of West Baldwin, Robin A. Lewis of Barrington, N.H., Wendy L. Shaw of Casco, Scott J. Lewis of Monmouth, Elizabeth A. Burnham of Augusta, Sandra T. Burnham of Windham, Judy L. McDonald of South Paris and Clyde E. Burnham IV of Westbrook; 13 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
