Obituary: Geraldine Wieners

Geraldine Wieners, at 74
Geraldine (Guinessy) Wieners, also known as Jerri, of Fort Myers, Fla., and formerly of Hull, died in Fort Myers on July 28, surrounded by her loving family. She was 74.
Born in Brookline, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Mary (Fitzgerald) Guinessy. She graduated from the Jeanne d’Arc Academy in Milton with the class of 1962. 
Jerri’s career was in retail and real estate. She loved her work and the relationships she built throughout the years. In her spare time, she enjoyed line dancing, going to the beach, taking “Discovery Learning” car rides in her cobalt blue Jeep Wrangler with her husband, Paul, and her “Nana Days” with each of her grandchildren. 
Family was the most important part of Jerri’s life. She loved the time she was able to spend with her children and grandchildren. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for the people she loved. 
Jerri was a proud Irish woman and loved everything about her heritage and culture. In 2012, her husband surprised her with a trip to Ireland, and it was a dream come true for Jerri. 
Jerri was a positive, happy, sweet, caring, loving, and selfless woman. Her life lessons, love, and example are her legacy, which continues through her children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all the lives she touched. 
Jerri and Paul Wieners married on March 12, 1982, in Hingham, and together they shared 37 loving years of marriage. She was the devoted mother of Brenda McIntosh; Carol Congelos, of Cape Coral, Fla.; and Dianne Pyburn and her husband, Tyler, of Norfolk. She was the loving grandmother of Nikolas, Brandon, and Julia McIntosh, Jay Gibbons, Chase Congelos, and Jake and Cole Pyburn. She was the soon-to-be grandmother of twins and the loving great-grandmother of Dimitri McIntosh. She was the dear sister of Mary G. Christie and Patricia Foley and her husband, John. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. 
Local services have been held. Interment is private. A memorial service will be held in Fort Myers at a later date.
