Carolyn Weinberger (1943-2019)

The organized mineral collecting hobby lost a stalwart and major contributor with the passing of Carolyn Weinberger on March 25, 2019, after a long and difficult battle with leukemia.

In the words of Carl Miller, past president of the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical Societies describing Carolyn, “We have witnessed the passing of a Giant.” Bob Livingston, another past president of the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical Societies, described Carolyn as “The greatest ‘go-to’ person in our times.”

A member of the Gem Cutter’s Guild said, “She was the glue of the club for many years.” And Jim Brace-Thompson, creator and continuing supervisor of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies Future Rockhounds of America, credits Carolyn’s help in getting the AFMS/FRA Badge Program going by publishing monthly articles throughout 2003 that led to the first edition of the AFMS/FRA Badge Manual in 2004—an effort that both Carolyn and her husband Steve have supported and championed through four editions of that manual to date. Said Jim, “I—and at least 4,518 kids—owe a huge debt of thanks to both Carolyn and Steve!”
