Judy L. (Borner) Cronin

December 9, 1945 ~ March 14, 2020 (age 74)


Judy L. Cronin, 74, of Limestone Lane, former resident of North Berwick, passed away peacefully March 14, 2020 in Portsmouth Regional Hospital after a period of failing health.

Judy was born in Stamford, CT on December 9, 1945, the daughter of Carl and Carol (Sloat) Borner and graduate of Jole Barlow High School in Redding, CT.

Judy was the administrator for the Forestry Department in Durham, NH; a representative at Creative Solutions Blind Company, designed Oriental Rugs which were manufactured in England as well as a Draftsman, drawing blue prints in her own home.  Judy was a self -proclaimed craftsman whose talents in so many areas were amazing.  She was a craft-extraordinaire, sewing anything from clothing to Christening gowns, knitting sweaters that came to life, turning pine needles into baskets that were sold on the reservations, seeing a sweater or outfit and making her own pattern for it.  Judy loved to upcycle making old things new again.  She was at her happiest moments when she was designing something new and beautiful.  Christmas was filled with gifts of her hand made goods to be cherished for generations.

Judy will be sorely missed by her children; Todd Cronin and wife Michelle of Berwick; Piper Cronin-LeMaster and husband Jeff of Fayetteville, NC; brother Kent Borner and wife Martha of Preston, CT; 2 sisters, Nancy Stockwell and husband John on Wendover, England and Cathy Borner of Canterbury, NH.  Grammy will be missed by her grandchildren, Colby Cronin, Nicholas and Joseph Batal and Moriah Cronin and great-granddaughter, Cadence Batal. 

A celebration of Judy’s life will be held over the summer. Details to be announced.  Friends who wish may contribute to Another Chance Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 552, North Berwick, ME 03906.  Arrangements are entrusted to the Johnson Funeral Home, North Berwick, ME.  Condolences may be expressed at
