Genevieve Pietrowski


Genevieve Pietrowski passed away quietly on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at the age of 97. Born in Salem MA in 1925, she was the daughter of Mary (Budka) and Archie Pietrowski. Gen lived most of her active and happy life in her beloved Manchester-by-the-Sea.
Gen graduated from Manchester’s Story High School in 1942 and then continued her education at Burdett Business College in Lynn. During World War II she worked at the Chelsea Naval Shipyard arranging metal ship pieces in preparation for the welders. As the men she worked with went off to war, she learned to do the welding herself, a true "Rosie the Riveter." After the war, Gen worked at National Life Insurance in Boston. She went on to work for The Johnson Clinic in Beverly, later known as The Medical Group, where she would spend the majority of her career. She became the office’s Computer Supervisor when computers were first being introduced in medical offices.
A devoted daughter, Gen lived with and cared for her mother until she passed away at the age of 92. Gen loved hiking in the woods and playing Bingo. Throughout her life she owned—and adored—her dachshunds. She had an extraordinarily generous heart; her greatest joy was in sharing whatever she had with others.
Gen is survived by her cousins Edward Ferris, Lorraine Pousman, Elizabeth Parrelli, Ruth Kachuk and Brenda Mahoney, and by her godchildren Pat Zalewski, Jeanne Zimmerman, John Wiley and Mark Wiley. Gen’s family and many friends will miss her deeply.
