Judith R. Sweet

Judith Romelle Sweet, Ph.D., 68, of Brookfield, died Feb. 16, 2023 at Hinsdale Hospital. 

Born Oct. 17, 1954 in Chicago, Dr. Sweet was a clinical psychologist who also served for 10 years as an elected official on the Brookfield Public Library Board of Trustees. She resigned from the board in June 2015 for health reasons.

“When she was in good health, Judith was a powerhouse,” said Brookfield Library Director Kimberly Coughran. “It was an asset to have her on the board as a clinical psychologist. She lent quite a bit to our discussions.”

Dr. Sweet was the daughter of Naomi (nee Warren) and the late Donald Sweet, the sister of the late Reneda (Kevin) Parker and the late Holly (Douglas) Funk and an aunt to many nieces and nephews. 

Services have been held. Interment is at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Hillside.
