Judi Robertson Burnham, 71, beloved wife of David E. Burnham of East Hampton, CT died peacefully on Wednesday, July 18th at home surrounded by her loving family. Born on November 8, 1946, in Hartford, CT she was the daughter of Eileen Robertson and the late Harold Robertson. She raised her children, Brian Robertson Burnham and Jill Robertson Burnham Kwasnick in East Hampton on the shore of Lake Pocotopaug. Judi was known for her generous spirit, and for seeing the good in everyone; her door was always open to family and friends, and she enjoyed entertaining all during the summer at her lakeside home. She was successful in her career as an accountant with Bigler Investment Management Services/Capital Analytics & most recently as a Vice President with Lehman Brothers. She was an avid reader, puzzle maker and die-hard UCONN women’s basketball fan. Go Huskies!
