Geraldine  “Poppy” Feinberg, 86   passed away peacefully on July 26, 2017 with her family by her side in Southampton, NY.

She met her husband-to-be on a failed blind date and married Gilbert M. Feinberg in 1955.  

Poppy was an avid volunteer while her children were in school, as well as Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader for many years.   She was like a mom to many of her children’s friends and made it her job to attend every school sporting event and every horse show her children participated in.  Poppy lived an adventurous and spontaneous life on her own terms. She loved the beach and especially loved driving on the beach and sharing that time with family and grandchildren.   

Poppy loved the to travel, a great glass of wine, the ocean, family barbeques and family gatherings.  She collected sea glass like it was her job.  Her favorite things later in life were needlepoint and reading James Patterson novels.   She lived life on her own terms and was always a force to be reckoned with.

Three children, Mayann Weinberg of Norwalk, CT, Douglas Feinberg Southampton, NY, and Gilbert Feinberg of Port St. Lucie, FL survive her, as well as six grand children and her sister, Charlene Lerman of Stamford, CT.
