Pauline M. Jennings (Houlihan), age 80, of Weymouth passed away peacefully on November 17, 2015 surrounded by her loving family after a long battle with cancer. Pauline was born in Boston and was raised in Dorchester where she met her beloved husband of 57 years, Robert Jennings. They were married in 1958 and stayed in Dorchester for 10 years where they started a family before eventually settling in Weymouth. Over the next 48 years, they built their family and made many great memories. Pauline always kept busy working as a school teacher, at Quincy Savings Bank as a Student Loan Officer and Night Supervisor at Filene's in Braintree. Most of all, she enjoyed being the Parish Organist at St. Peter’s in Dorchester, Sacred Heart Weymouth, Immaculate Conception Weymouth, and St. Francis Weymouth where she touched many lives with her love for the church community and for music. Pauline was the true matriarch of her family and was always there for them as a wife, mother and grandmother. Pauline will forever be missed for her dedication to the Weymouth Church Community and her family.

Pauline is survived by her beloved husband of 57 years Robert Jennings of Weymouth, her loving children Mary-Elizabeth Jennings of Grafton, Elaine M.
