Christine A. “Chris” Wieser, age 62, of Plymouth, Wis., was called home unexpectedly Monday afternoon, Sept. 8, 2014, after long-fought battles with cancer and heart difficulties. She spent her final moments with her husband and daughter at Holy Family Memorial in Manitowoc.

She was born the daughter of Margaret Eggebeen Nesemann and the late Bernard Nesemann on Jan. 13, 1952 in Racine, Wis.

On Oct. 2, 1971, she married her high school sweetheart, James Wieser, of Plymouth at Salem U.C.C. in Plymouth.

She graduated from the Plymouth School District and in 1973 received her bachelor’s degree in English and drama from Lakeland College. Upon graduation, she taught English at Sheboygan Falls High School for 17 years.

After teaching, Chris and her husband, Jim, co-owned the Plymouth Piggly Wiggly with good friends Kevin and Janine Mey. In addition to her various careers, Chris also found time to serve on the St. John the Baptist Parish Council in Plymouth.

On July 5, 1984, she had a son, Bernard Cletus (BC), who passed away shortly after birth. However, her greatest gift, daughter Maggie, came into her life on May 24, 1990.

In her spare time, Chris was an avid reader, golfer, card player and did needle work. She enjoyed making blankets for her friends, nieces and nephews and all their babies. In addition, Chris also found great joy in playing her trumpet and piano. And of course, being a true Wisconsinite, she was a loyal and passionate Packer fan.

Survivors include her husband, Jim of Plymouth; daughter, Maggie (special friend, Yovani) of West Allis; mother, Margaret Nesemann of Sheboygan Falls; one brother, Michael (Mary) Nesemann of Plymouth; two sisters, Teri (Tom) Konz of Sheboygan Falls and Ann (Jeff) VandeHey of Brillion; three sisters-in-law, Betty (Ted) Johnson of Fox Point, Rose (Pete) Wirtz of Elkhart Lake and Mary (Jim) Truttschel of Howards Grove and two brothers-in-law, Jerry (Mary) Wieser of Plymouth and Tom (Teri) Wieser of Plymouth; and also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Chris was preceded in death by her son, BC; father, Bernard and her mother- and father-in-law, Cletus and Sylvia Wieser.

Mass of Christian Burial was held Tuesday morning, Sept. 16, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Plymouth. Father Dennis Van Beek officiated. Entombment took place in the Gardens of Peace Mausoleum at Greenlawn Cemetery.

A memorial fund is being established in Chris’ name for the local blood center, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the American Heart Association.
