Obituary for Judith Wengrovitz

Judith Wengrovitz, 87, of Springfield, VA passed away surrounded by loving family on November 20, 2018. She is survived by her husband, Seymour Wengrovitz, her 3 sons, Michael (Debbie), David (Anne), and Phillip (Carolyn) Wengrovitz as well as her 5 grandchildren: Steven (Dan), Dan (Julia), Lauren, Andrew and Austin Wengrovitz.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, on January 3, 1931 to Harry and Hilda Kanarick, Judy spent her early years establishing and developing a life-long passion for art. She graduated from Hunter College in Manhattan with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a major in art education. During her time at Hunter, she met and later married her husband Seymour in 1952. They moved to Springfield, VA to set up a home and raise their 3 sons, Michael, Phillip, and David.
During her time in Springfield, Judy turned her art passion into a career, becoming a professional artist and winning numerous art awards from shows throughout the years. Some of her numerous awards and honors include a listing in the “Who’s Who in American Art,” a recipient of the Equal Merit Award from the Art League at the Torpedo Factory, the Award of Excellence and Best in Show Award from the Virginia Watercolor Society, and the Excellence Award from the National League of American Pen Women. Her involvement within the art community and her extraordinary watercolor paintings earned her several prominent presidential positions with the Springfield Art Guild, Virginia Watercolor Society, Potomac Valley Watercolorists, and the Alexandria Branch of the National League of American Pen Women. Such experience and success within the art community allowed her to work on her latest project of hosting her own TV program called “Welcome to the Painter’s Palette.”
Her residence for the last year has been at Green Spring Village in Springfield, VA, where she enjoyed spreading her knowledge about watercolor techniques to some of the residents through the art classes she taught there. Funeral services will be held at Agudas Achim Congregation, 2908 Valley Dr. Alexandria, VA on Friday, November 23, 2018 at 10:30 AM. Interment following in King David Memorial Gardens Falls Church, VA.
