Funeral Mass will be 11 AM Saturday, May 29, 2021 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, New Smyrna Beach with Rev. Aldrin Nunes, C.Ss.R. as the celebrant. Memorial donations may be made to Connecticut State Police Academy Scholarship Fund, CSPAAA, P. O. Box 1945, Meriden, CT 06450 or Halifax Health Hospice, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange, FL 32129.

Judith Ann Weiss, 78, Port Orange, a faithful and devoted wife to her husband and a most caring and loving mother to her children, went to be with the Lord on May 8, 2021. She was the daughter of Michael and Eileen Baner and was born on May 20, 1942 in Brooklyn, NY. She spent her youth growing up in Queens, NY and Willimantic, CT. Judith spent her career working as a secretary within the Employees Assistance Unit at the Connecticut State Police Dept. and also at Central Connecticut State University working for the Associate Vice President of Facilities Management before retiring to Florida. Judith was a devoted Catholic, an avid Red Sox fan and faithfully watched Jeopardy. In her leisure time she enjoyed traveling and was an avid cruiser having had the opportunity to visit many locations, always saying Australia and New Zealand were her favorites. She was also a regular at her grandchildren’s activities, always wanting to cheer them on in support. It isn’t possible to imagine someone could be a better wife, mother, nana and friend. She will be missed dearly, but we know that she will be at peace in Heaven with her friends and family. Judith is survived by her husband of 56 years, John G. Weiss; her three children, Deirdre (Joseph) Cesario, Jodie Cormier and John M. (Rebecca) Weiss; her sister and best friend, who she spoke to daily, MaryEllen Kuczuk; five granddaughters, Makayla and Morgan Cesario, Olivia Cormier and Reagan and Ryleigh Weiss and sister-in-law, Doris (David) Robinson. She also leaves behind nephews, Michael Kuczuk, previously deceased Ronald Kuczuk and David and Billy Robinson; niece Susan Robinson; numerous great nieces, great nephews and cousins.

I pour out a whole ocean of mercy upon the souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet … Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.”
