We are devastated! Manchester will by a poorer place without her. She was a true Tzadekes. Never said a negative word, and never a negative word was said about her.
Beloved by everyone, the Booba of us all!
BDE. She will be a melitzas yosher for her truly special children.

We are heartbroken. She was indeed a pillar of the community and we will all miss her dearly. She has been a role model for all women in the Manchester community and in particular to Neshei Chabad.
May she be a melitzas yosher for her dear family and for all Klal Yisroel.

There are no words to describe the loss that we feel. She really has the title of a shem tov.
Gigi was always doing good and looking for good. The family are a real credit to her and Sholom.

Wow, what saddening news. I spent a couple of Shabbosim in the Weiss’s home, and despite whatever condition she might have been going through, Gigi and her husband Shalom were extremely accomodating and outgoing, making me feel comfortable and at home.

May her family be comforted and strengthened by Hashem in the greatest form, and may they be Zoiche to see her back very soon, Amen!

She was the first one available to help out family, friends and definetely the wider community too. All she did was without any question totally Lishmo without looking to receive any worldly reward or honour. Who will ever forget her Hachnosas Orchim, tables full of guests and all with a smile and her unforgetable warmth. We her family will surely miss her and may her husband and children find comfort following in her wonderful ways, each one in their shlichus around the world

Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet, a truly special woman who was warm, practical, encouraging, an inspirational teacher, an exceptional mother, a confidante to many, always with a smile warmth and a genuine love of Klal Yisroel. Gigi was one of the unsung heroes of our time she touched so many lives in so many many ways . May her memory be an inspiration to us all.

To the Weiss Family,
Many years ago when our son Itchie was learning in Manchester, he didn’t feel well. Rabbi & Mrs Weiss took him into their home, and cared for him as if he was one of their own. Later when we visited him, they invited us to their home for a visit. Hamokom Y’nachaim Eschem b’soch shaar Availai Tzion Vyerushlaim

To the Dear Weiss Family,

As Family friends for all the years back in the Manchester days,
one can see the Feine Gute Kinder dedicated to the Rebbes work of reaching out to help and encourage a fellow yid to do a Mitzvah, that Mrs Weiss A”H has left behind.

The warmth, Eidelkeit and Smchas Hachayim that the family displays will surely help her continue to be a Gutte Beitter for the Mishpacha.

To Dear Gigi’s Family
Gigi was my best friend at school (Stand Grammar). She was so wise and grounded at an early age. She never said a bad thing about anyone. Her wisdom and positive outlook have influenced my life immeasurably, tho we hadn’t met in 50 years. I’m heartbroken not to have reconnected with her. May her dear soul rest in peace.
