Obituary for Judith Ballou Freeman
Judith Ballou Freeman, 86, passed peacefully the morning of November 2nd.
Born in Providence, RI, she was a daughter of the late Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. and Caroline Capwell Ballou, sister of the late Frederick R. (Tod) Ballou and twin sister of Caroline (Cay) Ballou Eden, who survives her. She attended The Wheeler School and is a graduate of Emma Willard School and Vassar College (1952).
She leaves her son, Peter (Ham) Freeman, of Barrington, RI and three stepdaughters – Cricket Kennedy of Westwood, MA, Melissa Bell of Boynton Beach, FL and Sarah Jaffurs of St. Croix, USVI. Ten grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren survive her, as well, and to them she was “J.J.”.
She called Weston, MA then New London, CT home for many years, spent a lifetime of summers at her family’s home on Eel Pond in Edgartown and returned to Rhode Island some 15 years ago.
Known for her wit, candor and honesty, but foremost for her love of family and friends, she will be lovingly missed.
A private family funeral service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to The Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation – online at or by phone at (508) 693-5207.
