    Brenda Caplan Winter

  • AGE



    Tuesday, February 07, 2023



    Brenda Caplan Winter (age 77) of Sarasota, Florida and previously Atlanta, Georgia passed away on February 7, 2023. She was the beloved wife of Mark Winter for 42 years, mother of Mark Fishman (Joanna), and Jill George (the late Art George), Robert Winter (Caryn) and Steven Winter (Terri) and sister of Beverly Caplan. She was blessed to have seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren. 

    She was born on February 11, 1945, in Dublin, Georgia to Matilda and Myer Caplan and never lost the desire to return to a small southern town.

    From early childhood playmates and Grady High School and University of Georgia classmates to her customers of Party Stuff and the ladies of mah jong, once you were a friend, you were always a friend.

     Brenda will be remembered for her spunk, laughter, warm heart, Southern hospitality, strength, and love for the Waffle House. Though, her true happy place was the family “beach house” on Siesta Key where she spent her final days in her “paradise” overlooking the white sand, listening to the waves of the beautiful gulf, and watching amazing sunsets, surrounded by her loving family.

    Currently, there are no plans for a service. We will celebrate her life at a future time. If you wish to donate in her memory, please do so to Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research ( or do something nice for a stranger.

    Beverly, Mark and family; I am shock to hear of Brenda's passing. I met Brenda and the Caplan family when they moved to Atlanta. My parents became good friends of Matilda and Myer and of course Brenda was one of my best friends. Over the years I didn't see Brenda, but we would talk for hours. Brenda will be truly missed by all. Charlene Capilouto and Eli Capilouto
