Memphis, TN

Marta Cohen Weiss, age 58, of Memphis, TN, passed away Monday, July 3, 2017. She was a graduate of East High School and Memphis State University, where she was a little sister of Lambda Chi Fraternity. Marta was also crowned "Miss Variety" of the Memphis Variety Club in 1975, and performed much good will work through them as their representative. Marta worked for Goodwill Industries during and after college, which helped shape the person she was to become. She continued good will toward others throughout her life; as she was always one who strived to help others, love others, and gave of herself in every way that she could to all that she loved. She was a blessing to all that knew her, and many people will always remember the positive impact she made on their lives. Marta received sales awards such as "National Salesperson of the Year", "President's Club Excellence Award", and "Bermuda Travel Award" in the years she was employed by Xerox and Alcon Laboratories, and also enjoyed her work as a sales representative for Lifetouch National School Studios. One of the most treasured memories of her youth was growing up at Mullins Methodist Church and being a member of the One Way Singers. Those who knew her will remember her infectious giggle whose eyes would squint and tear with laughter. Marta will always be remembered as one who rarely ended a conversation without saying, "I love you", and giving you a sincere hug.

She is survived by her daughter, Marissa Paige Weiss, Marissa's father Lewis Weiss; her stepchildren, Heather Weiss Dockweiler (James) and Rodney Weiss (Katie), Heather's children, Maxwell and Celie Dockweiler; her father, Aaron J. Cohen; her sisters, Anna Diehl (Ray) and Judy Cohen; her brother; Larry Cohen (Catherine); her niece, Kristi Diehl, and her nephews, Gray Cohen and Michael Cohen. Marta was preceded in death by her loving mother, Frances Rebecca McCharen Cohen.

The family will receive friends beginning at 1:30 p.m. and a memorial service will follow at 3 p.m., Sunday, July 9 at Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery.
