Ruth Ida Goodman, age 91, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 16, 2020 at
County Manor Nursing Home in Tenafly NJ. She was born in Boston, MA to Max
and Lillian Lerman. Ruth lived in Randolph, MA from 1962 to 2001. In 2001, she
moved to Bridgewater, NJ to be closer to her adult children.

Ruth was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and had many interests and
passions including a natural artistic talent for portrait sketching, a love of acting in
local community theater and a passion for politics and astrology.
Ruth was preceded in death by her loving husband Myer Goodman in 1988, and
by her cherished brother Philip Lerman in 2013.

Ruth is survived by her three devoted daughters, Ina Goodman of Eugene,
Oregon, Bonnie Goodman and husband Gary Friedman of Tenafly NJ, and Debbie
Ur and husband Alex of Mt. Pleasant SC. Also surviving are her grandchildren
Lauren Ur of Mt. Pleasant SC and Joselinne Goodman of Eugene, Oregon.
Ruth touched the lives of so many with her keen intellect, unconditional love,
generosity and kindness. She was a great proponent for women’s rights. She will
be forever missed.

Services are private. A memorial service and celebration of her life will be scheduled at a later date. Memorial Donations may be made online to Zachor Holocaust Remembrance

So sorry to hear about your moms passing. I remember all the great times together at our family gatherings, especially everyone getting out of the “bug” when you arrived. During this difficult time we hope that all those fun memories live on and continue with your families. Our sincere condolences and love.
Mark and Judy Bornstein
