Portsmouth—Judith Lewis Levin, 77, of Portsmouth, Virginia died peacefully and comfortably Friday afternoon, March 18, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born February 1, 1945, in Worcester Massachusetts, the daughter of the late Sherman S. and Anne H. Lewis.

Judi was predeceased by her son Jay Daniel Levin, and loving husband of 53 years, Richard N. Levin. She is survived by her son, John David Levin (Ellen); grandchildren, Nathan P., and William T. Levin; brother, David J. Lewis (Joann); and numerous nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and cousins.

Judi met the love of her life, Richard, in High School before heading off to American University. Soon thereafter, they were married and having a family. Judi was a dedicated wife and mother. As the boys aged, she began to sell real estate and successfully helped her cherished clients with that big purchase for decades.

Family was everything to Judi and she loved her two grandsons, Nate and Will, to the moon and back. She loved yoga, the beach, and golf, but had a very special spot in her heart for Naples, Florida and all the great friends she made there.

Sadly, Judi was diagnosed with cancer and, while tragic, hardly her last act. All of her strength, determination and love for life and people allowed her to continue to thrive. One of her favorite and most meaningful trips occurred during this time, a trip to Israel for Nate’s Bar Mitzvah. A crowning achievement coming after the cancer diagnosis and the unexpected loss of Richard.

Judi’s radiant smile and kind heart balanced out her immeasurable strength and courage. Her positive attitude was everything.

A graveside service was held at Gomley Chesed Cemetery, 3603 George Washington Highway, Portsmouth, Virginia. Memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
