Charlene Center Kahn Berman passed away on Tuesday, September 15 at Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow of natural causes.

Charlene was born in Atlanta, Georgia to Dave and Bunny Center on July 14, 1941. Charlene attended and earned degrees from University of Illinois and Hunter College; she applied her education toward community service, advocacy, and philanthropy. She served as Board President of Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester and was an active board member and/or supporter of Temple Beth El, Congregation Beth Israel of Honesdale PA, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Northern Westchester Hospital, Westchester Community College Scholarship Office, and Black Bear Film Festival to name just a few. She was an avid reader who celebrated the arts, education, travel, and medicine. She enjoyed spending time with friends and family in Chappaqua, Pennsylvania, and Las Vegas. And when asked, however, what she saw as her greatest accomplishment, she quickly replied that it is her children

Charlene is survived by her children Amy Kahn, David Kahn (Jodi), and Adam Kahn (Lili) and her step-daughter Michele Berman, and Grandchildren Jack Williams (T’leah), Lexi Kahn, Ryan Stuck, Emily Kahn, Josephine Stuck, Stephen Kahn, and Jacob Kahn; and her great-grandson Easton Williams. She is also survived by her sister Renie Halperin (Frederick) and brother Charles Center (Jane). She is preceded in death by her parents Dave and Bunny Center of Atlanta, her husband Lloyd F.

Charlene was the best, and a wonderful friend and neighbor over many decades to the Newmark family on Laurel Lane, including our late mother, Betty Newmark, and our various dogs who would stop by for a visit with Charlene. We are so sorry to lose Charlene and our thoughts are with you.

A friend I will never forget. She was so loving and full of compassion. We are so glad that you made it out to Nova Scotia. I will miss your constant emails. Goodbye my friend
