Evelyn R. Berman
May 5, 2020

EVELYN R. BERMAN: 97, of Pittsburgh, PA passed away of natural causes on May 5, 2020. A Pittsburgh native and graduate of Westinghouse High School, Evelyn was always the smart, adorable redhead, and was married for 62 years to George Berman, who predeceased her in 2010. After raising their four children, she earned both a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree of Arts in Education from the University of Pittsburgh, and for many years devotedly served as an elementary teacher in the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Formerly of Highland Park and Squirrel Hill, she is remembered lovingly by her sons, Mark (Beth) Berman and Robin (Nancy) Berman, and her daughter, Cantor Laura Berman; five grandchildren, Lia (Michael) Berman, Richard (Ellen) Stern, Dan (Laura) Berman, David Stern and Sam Berman; five great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends, particularly those from the Canterbury Place care team who became endeared to her during her recent three years residence. Her eldest, Gwen Berman Stern, predeceased her in 2009. Known for her love of reading and puzzles, ever-present smile, warmth, spirited love of life, and perseverance, Evelyn grew ever more loving as she aged - a beautiful legacy. Evelyn had asked that donations be made to the Children's Section of the Squirrel Hill Branch of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, services and interment are Private. Shiva will be observed virtually and a memorial service will be planned for a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. www.schugar.com


Send Condolence

We were so fortunate to have met your warm loving mother Evelyn a few years ago. She was so happy that you and Sam took her to visit our mutual relative Elana Bloom. She was curious about how our side of the family was related, and asked a lot of questions. Laura, you made it possible that Mother lived a better quality of life. You and Sam made that possible for her. She was so proud of both of you. May her memory be a blessing for both of you.

I was leaving condolences for Tom Silverman and noticed Evelyn had passed away. It appears she had the fullest life a person can full of accomplishments and love. I remember Mrs. Berman from growing up in the neighborhood and my parents were friends with her and Mr Berman. My late brother Michael was friends with one of her sons. I’m sorry for her loss but what an amazing life and woman!!
