  • 61 years old
  • Date of birth: May 26, 1952
  • Date of passing: Oct 20, 2013

Daphne M. Weiss-Ling, age 61, of Boca Raton, Florida passed away on October 20, 2013 from pancreatic cancer. Daphne is survived by two loving daughters, Alexandra (Benjamin) and Nicole, her grandson Dean, and her former husband and best friend, Peter Ling. A professionally licensed and highly accomplished Interior Designer, Daphne designed homes throughout South Florida and various states in the U.S. for over 30 years. She appeared in numerous publications such as Architectural Digest and Florida Design. Daphne was a trend setter, always voted “best dressed” among her friends and those who knew her. She loved the arts and passed on her passion for theatre, design and fashion to both of her daughters. Daphne lived life to the fullest and loved spending quality time with her family and friends, whom she considered her extended family. A private memorial for family and close friends will be forthcoming.

In lieu of flowers, we are continuing our fundly campaign to help cover the cost of the quality and loving hospice care Daphne received from her two in-home caregivers.

Donations to the Lustgarten Pancreatic Foundation are also encouraged.

I am SO sorry to learn of Daphne's passing,  I had  visited her in the hospital and she was SO upbeat, as was her attitude on life. Unfortunately I had to work Saturday and could not attend your memorial service.  I'm sure it was beautiful, as was Daphne. She and Peter were friends and clients of mine, and I loved both of them. Be wel"
