Mildred (Jackson) Weinstein, age 92, passed away on Monday, November 21, 2016, surrounded by family, after a courageous battle with cancer. Mildred was the daughter of the late Bertha and Morris Jackson, and sister of Esther Sohn and the late Ruth, Sam, and Ralph Jackson. She resided in West Hartford with her husband David H. Weinstein, DDS, who died in 2011. For the past five years, she was a resident of Brookdale Chatfield Senior Living.
Mildred grew up in New Britain, attended business school, and, for over fifty years, served as the business manager for the Hartford dental practice of her beloved husband. She was the proud mother of five children and their spouses: Sharon Weinstein, MD, Lincoln, MA, Susan Cinner (Peter Cinner, DDS), Leverett, MA, Eliot Weinstein (Marcy Aronson), NYC, Mark Weinstein (Nancy Belliveau Weinstein), and Arnold Weinstein, DMD (Laura Bennett Weinstein), Glastonbury, CT. She was the cherished grandmother of Shira, Max, Ariel, and Daniel Weinstein, and Juliana Cinner, and step-grandmother of Josh Cinner, PhD (fiancé Michele Barnes) and Verne Bennett.
Mildred will always be remembered for her deep caring and love for family and friends. She was adored and cherished by all those she touched. She was known for her kindness, intelligence, warmth, gentle humor, optimism, modesty, loyalty, and generosity of spirit. She loved attending weekly Torah study and the Sage Program for seniors at Congregation Beth Israel, where she assumed the honored role of leading the blessing before the meals. Her children and grandchildren will always remember joyous family gatherings with her, marked by singing, music, dancing and, especially, her unrivaled chicken soup and other culinary specialties. She will be deeply missed.
