Central Florida's Independent Jewish Voice


Submitted by the family

Mark A. Blinderman, 78, our loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on Dec. 21, 2023. He was predeceased by his parents, Louis and Sylvia Blinderman, and his in-laws, Martin and Ilona Jacoby, and he will be missed terribly by his wife of 56 years, Hedy; his daughters, Paige and Elin; his grandchildren, Hope and Jackson Shenk; his sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and Artie Smith; his Penn State Nittany Lions and countless other family, friends, and former colleagues.

Mark was born March 23, 1945, in Allentown, Pennsylvania and most recently resided in Longwood, Florida. He met Hedy at the Pennsylvania State University at a hot dog roast (or so the story goes). He began his career in the food and beverage industry and later owned a small business—now owned and operated as Maitland Jewelers by his daughter, Elin Shenk, of which he was most proud. Above all else, he loved his family, and he dedicated his life to making sure we were loved, healthy, secure and happy. He was always there for us, reminding us of how much he loved us.

Funeral service were held at the Pavilion of Temple Israel Cemetery (9302 Morton Jones Road, Gotha, Florida) with Rabbi Rachael Jackson and Cantor Bryce Megdal of Congregation of Reform Judaism officiating. Interment will follow at Congregation of Reform Judaism Cemetery. May he rest in peace and may his memory always be a blessing.

Service entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 933 Lee Road, Suite 101, Orlando, Florida 407-599-1180.
