Cecelia R. Weiss, 96
February 06, 2019
Cecelia R. Weiss, 96, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2019 at the Mennonite Home. She was born on March 10, 1922 in Baltimore, MD to the late Morris Miller and Marie (Mirando) Miller. She is survived by her loving husband of 73 years, Albert J. Weiss, M.D.
Cecelia was a graduate of the Eaton & Burnett Business School where she earned her degree in business management. She was an employee of the former Sinai Hospital in Baltimore where her future husband, Dr. Albert Weiss, completed his internship. Their romance began in the medical records room of the hospital, and after marrying in December 1945, they remained inseparable until her death. Cecelia served as business manager in Albert’s pediatric practice for the entire period from when the practice began in 1950 until they both retired in December 1985.
Cecelia was a kind and compassionate person, and was deeply devoted to her family. She will be remembered by many as one who though diminutive in stature, was strong-willed and one who was not afraid to speak her mind.
Surviving in addition to her husband are two children – David M. Weiss, husband of Kelley S. Weiss, Lititz, and Susan W. Epstein, wife of Larry M. Epstein, Boynton Beach, FL; two granddaughters – Melanie J. Denk, wife of D. Keith Denk, Baltimore, MD, and Erica R. Martin, wife of James R. Martin, Lancaster; two grandsons – Jason A. Epstein, husband of Dr. Marisa Epstein, Larchmont, NY, and Dr. Andrew J. Weiss, husband of Dr. Alexandra E. Weiss, Columbia, MD; and 5 great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to express its heartfelt thanks to the Mennonite Home Reed Run unit for the excellent and compassionate care provided to Cecelia and Albert, for which we are extremely grateful.
Cecelia requested that funeral services be limited to a private ceremony for her immediate family members. She also requested that no shiva services be held.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Cecelia’s memory may be made to the Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center, 625 Community Way, Lancaster, PA 17603.

I was so sorry to see Mrs. Weiss death notice in the Baltimore Sun.Her husband Dr. Weiss was my families Pediatrician. My Mother Constance Moreland( who died 2016 at age 96) had such Faith and confidence in both Dr. Weiss and Mrs Weiss. They were truly partners in that pediatric practice.I remember Mrs. Weiss as always looking so professional in her starched white uniform and hair looking perfectly coiffed.She kept that office moving but you never felt rushed-only their kindness and caring.We all have such fond memories of both Dr. and Mrs Weiss. Together they epitomized what we miss nowadays as that old school medical care and competence.On behalf of my four siblings, Connie, Curt, Mary Beth and Benny, we extend our deepest sympathy and gratitude.

It was with deep sadness that I read of Mrs. Weiss’ passing. I remember her as a dear, devoted, loving “lady”. She was always understanding and helpful to me. I will remember both Dr. and Mrs. Weiss’ compassion and patience with me and my fears and craziness over many years. I send my most heartfelt condolences. May her memory be for a blessing, and may the happy times you had together be a source of comfort to you at this dark time. Fondly, Reta Freeman

The Gelber Family send condolences to Albert, David, Susan and the family. Albert is my mother’s brother (prior to mothers death in July 2011). We remember Aunt Cele affectionately and with love over the years. She will be missed. I personally wished I had seen more of Aunt Cele as we all age. However, from all my brothers and our family on the Gelber side of the Weiss family, we loved Aunt Cele, will think of her fondly, and remember her at Yahrzeit.

I extend my sympathy to Albert Weiss and the rest of the family. I learned to know Cecelia and Al when they lived at Woodcrest Villa. I had many conversations with Cecelia on the phone and she was always so kind and appreciative. I admired the relationship they had with each other. It was obvious they cared for each other very much.

The day I met the Weiss’ I new they were very special. They are loving and caring and thankful for all that you do. First thing I’d do when I come to work I would go in to the weiss’ room and see them both sitting there smiling and she would say “shake it up kid “ she always told me to never give up and never settle for less . I will forever hold a special place in my heart for cc . I am thinking of her family at this time and they are a very special family I’m glad to have been able to take care of cc . Never goodbye it’s see you later love always
