Pritikin, Judith A.


Pritikin, Judith A. (Judy), 64, died Friday, April 5th, 2024 at Rhode Island Hospital. She was the beloved wife of Elliott Pritikin for over 37 years. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, the second eldest of five children to the late John and Dorine Capaldi. Judy grew up in Providence, RI before her Dad’s job moved the family to various Southeast and Midwest locations settling in Michigan, where she met Elliott. They met on his birthday, fell in love, married, had their two sons in Michigan and then his job took the family to Ohio, New Hampshire, Singapore, and after so many years (and mortgages) they settled back in Rhode Island nine years ago. Judy had her earlier career in customer service in footwear and automotive electronics before retiring to raise their two sons as the devoted soccer, baseball, and most importantly football mom while volunteering for Sisterhood and most school events. More recently she enjoyed being a department manager at HomeGoods in Lincoln. Judith was a member of Temple Beth El in Providence.

Cherished mother of Samuel, his wife Veronica Pritikin, and Jordan, his wife Bailey Pritikin. Dear sister of Mark, his wife, Lesa Capaldi. Loving grandmother of Sofia Pritikin.

Memorial and a celebration of her life service will take place on Sunday May 19th at 11:00 AM at Temple Beth El, 70 Orchard Avenue, Providence, RI. 02906 date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in her memory may be made to Brotherhood of Temple Beth El.
