Ava Jacqueline WeinbergJune 4th, 2021
Ava Jacqueline Weinberg, née Brahen, age 70, resident of Philadelphia, PA, died on May 31, 2021, after several years of declining health. A loving mother, she is survived by her son, Daniel and his partner Justin Lockwood, both of New York, NY. She was predeceased by her husband Frank Weinberg. Ava grew up in the Logan neighborhood of Philadelphia, the only child of Sarah and Joe, both avid musicians. A graduate of Olney High School and Temple University, she held various jobs such as radio DJ, life insurance telemarketer, flea market vendor, and substitute teacher, as well as a stint at a button factory in Boston, MA. She took great pride in staying at home to raise Daniel, teaching him to read at an early age, and getting him his first dog after Frank died. After raising Daniel in Newark, DE and Northeast Philadelphia, she lived in personal care homes in Olney, Germantown, and the Northeast. A self-described “tide-bucker,” Ava enjoyed writing poetry, eating seafood, playing guitar, and dancing to the latest music on the radio. Donations can be made in Ava’s honor to Mental Health Partnerships. A memorial service will be held at a later time – more information at http://avaweinberg.com.
