Vera Louise Weiss

WEISS: Vera Louise Weiss (Goldspinner), age 96, of Safety Harbor, Florida, formerly of Pittsburgh, passed away peacefully on Feb. 14, 2022, in Clearwater, Florida, with her loving family by her side. Devoted wife of the late Milton Weiss, and loving mother of Lester (Lucy) Weiss and the late Jeffrey Weiss. Beloved grandmother of Michael (Michelle) Weiss, Jennifer (Zachary) Sample, Steven (Rachael) Weiss, and great-grandmother to four beautiful great-grandchildren.
Vera was a kind, smart and beautiful woman inside and out. There was never a dull moment when she was around. She shared a beautiful 72-year marriage with the man of her dreams, and it seemed only fitting that they be reunited on Valentine’s Day. Vera earned not only her bachelor’s degree, but also her master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh, a very rare accomplishment for women of that time.
Vera was with the Pittsburgh Board of Education for 30 years, first as a teacher at Gladstone High School, and then as a guidance counselor at Taylor Allderdice High School. She helped countless children throughout her life, and everywhere that Vera went she would run into someone who knew and loved her. After her retirement, Vera was a very active volunteer at the Squirrel Hill Jewish Memorial Center, where she received many awards for her outstanding service. She was also a member of Rodef Shalom Congregation.
Vera had many dear friends, loved playing bridge and mahjong, and was an excellent tennis player clear into her 80s. She knew how to enjoy life and have fun. However, the most important thing in life to Vera was her family. She was proud of her husband, children and grandchildren; and she sure knew how to spoil everyone with her famous brisket, corned beef sandwiches and sweet iced tea. Vera lived a long and joyous life, filled with love and laughter. Even though Vera will be deeply missed, we know she is truly happy reunited with her one true love, Milt.
A private family memorial service will be held in her honor. PJC
