Lillian Sugarman, 80, died April 13, 2021, from a glioblastoma.
Lillian was a resident of Philadelphia, Pa., before coming to Berman Commons in March.
She had a most meaningful and successful career in the world of social work. She trained colleagues at two Early Head Start programs in Pennsylvania. She directed the national Zero To Three agency, and National Infant & Toddler Child Care Initiative, the United Planning Organization in Washington, D.C., and the President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities.
She participated in the Women’s March in Washington and the MLK march. She was very involved in and served on the board of The Mary Campbell Center in Wilmington, Del., a home for disabled adults. She also served on the board of Maternity Care Coalition.
She made such an impact on all. Her legacy will be felt for years to come. We love you, Lill! Lillian was the sister of Rae Bellman; “fun” aunt of Lisa Klein of New York and Rabbi Barry Klein of Jerusalem; great aunt to several great nieces and great nephews.
