We note with sadness the death of Judy Grunberg, a generous pillar of the Columbia County community. She was known, among many things, for supporting the arts and founded PS21 (Performance Spaces for the 21st Century) in Chatham, where she also owned the Blue Plate bistro.

As a fundholder, Judy was a member of the Berkshire Taconic family for more than 20 years. "Judy had the energy, vision and passion to get things done to make her community better," said Director of Philanthropic Services Jill Cancellieri.

Judy sat on the WAMC Board of Trustees, and Alan Chartock, the radio station's president and CEO, wrote a memorial column in the Berkshire Edge. You can also read more about Judy's life and generosity in the Register-Star.
