Geraldine Wearsch

Geraldine M. Wearsch (nee Bycynski), 86, of Avon Lake. Born, May 8, 1936, in Elyria to her late parents, John and Margaret (Fritz). Geraldine graduated from Elyria Catholic in the second graduating class. She married Ralph Wearsch in 1958 and they began their lives together in Lorain but soon after moved to Avon Lake. She was a homemaker but had many part-time jobs. She was a great cook and enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends. Gerry spent hours canning and freezing Ralph's summer harvest. She loved planning, especially party planning, but also organizing travel for family and friends.

She and her family were founding members of Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Avon Lake, and most recently faithful parishioners of St. Joseph, Avon Lake, where her son, Ron, is the pastor. She attended St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church during her later years when wintering at her home in Naples, Florida. She couldn't get enough family time and she claimed her greatest accomplishment was her loving family. She will be dearly missed by her family and many friends.

Beloved wife of Ralph for 64 years; devoted mother of Renee Stuart, Ralph Wearsch (Sue), Rev. Ronald Wearsch, and Russell Wearsch (Gail); grandmother of Samantha Benedict (Steven), Dane and Bryce Stuart (Sara); Kristen, Kelsey and Roman Wearsch; great-grandmother of Grayson; dear sister of Joe Bycynski (Sarah), Sister-in-Law Rosemary Faulhaber (Larry), many nieces and nephews and the late Steven Bycynski (Theresa), Dorothy Abookire, John Bycynski (Betty), Bernard Bycynski (Clara), Roman Wearsch (Rosie), Dorthy Belgrave (Jim) and Rita Barniak (Steve).
