Geraldine Hannah Weiner, 88, of Winter Park passed away peacefully at her home on July 29, 2022. Originally from Dorchester, Massachusetts, Geraldine lived in Winter Park since 1961. She and her loving husband, Jason, raised 6 children together and enjoyed celebrating all the many achievements and joys, and watching their family grow with beautiful grandchildren.
As a young woman, growing up in the Boston area, Geraldine began her lifelong love of art. She attended the Boston Museum School of Fine Art where she focused on painting. Jason & Geraldine met on a blind date and, by the end of the date, they had a feeling they would be married. They settled in Winter Park and Geraldine became active with the Navy wives. She created many pieces of art for their assorted programs over the years.
Above all, Geraldine was a fun-loving and devoted mother. She was the kind of mom who dropped everything to play, paint, and read with her children. She knew that dinner could wait, but children would grow. In 1986, the family was honored as a recipient of the Great American Family Award and was invited to the White House by then first Lady Nancy Reagan.
