Sharon Rawlings Kramer, MD, died on July 7, 2020 after a battle with glioblastoma that began this spring.
Dr. Rawlings was born in Dallas, Texas, and moved with her family to the Boston area as a child. She graduated from Stoughton High School in 1989 and from Brandeis University, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, in 1993. She attended the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, and completed her medical residency at Brown University.
Dr. Rawlings moved to Berkshire County in 1999, initially working for Berkshire Medical Group, and later for Berkshire Health Systems. In that capacity Sharon was a doctor and healer to many thousands of people, earning a reputation for compassion, intelligence, and a fierce devotion to her patients.
Besides being a physician, and a loving wife and mother, Sharon also had a fondness for international travel and for genre fiction like Doctor Who.
Dr. Rawlings is survived by her husband, Dr. Eric Kramer of Pittsfield, her son, Noah, her mother, Lynn Rawlings and stepfather Frank Holub of Stoughton, and her sister Elaine McManus with her husband Jimi McManus of Strafford, NH.
