Obituary

Mary M. Bozenik

 

 

 

(nee Kucik)  Age 94 years.  Born to eternal life January 18, 2023.  Mary is preceded in death by her husband Joseph, siblings Louise (Olav) Nickolaisen, Edward Kucik, Eleanor (Joseph) Allis, Frank (Agatha) Kucik, Ethel (Robert) Beauchamp, Agnes (Gustaf) Wellskopf and Ann (Robert) Carrara.   Beloved mother of Bonnie Bozenik, Gary (Vicki) Bozenik, and Michael Bozenik.  Dear grandmother of Shaun (Heidi) Bozenik, Shannon Bozenik, Michelle (Brian) Hebert, Jason Bozenik and Krista (David) Bushberg, and 13 loving great grandchildren. Also loved by many nieces and nephews, friends, and caregivers.

 

Mary was born and raised on a small dairy farm in Moquah in far northern Wisconsin during the Great Depression.  This humble beginning shaped her life as a very kind, loving, and caring person that was a favorite to many.  After graduating from Ondassagen High School, she moved to Milwaukee where she worked as an inspector for Globe Union on Bremen St. Then after meeting and marrying the love of her life, Joseph Bozenik, she lovingly raised their three children before re-entering the workforce when they were grown.  Employed by Milwaukee Market Research for 12 years, she conducted phone interviews.  She loved to sew and made clothes for herself and the family and was often asked to alter clothes for others.  Mary endured hardships.  She unexpectedly lost her husband, Joseph at the early of age of 57 and her younger sister Ann to cancer.  She endured and survived colon cancer for 30 years.  She suffered a heart attack and fractured hip in 2018 and lost her last 2 very close sisters Ethel and Agnes in 2019.  Despite difficulties, Mary was cheerful, kind, sweet, and would make others and herself laugh to the very end of her life.  And she was often singing or humming hymns and Christmas songs since living at the Lutheran Home this past year.  She was a blessing to those that visited or talked on the phone.  Throughout her life she loved to exercise, walk, play her guitar, and dance polkas.  She was excited to talk about life in Moquah and would say a few words in Slovak to anyone.

 

 Heartfelt gratitude to Ascension St. Joseph Hospital in Milwaukee for outstanding care and extending her life multiple times.  Also, a special thank you for the extra kind and loving care and support provided by the Lutheran Home staff at 3NW and AccentCare Hospice service, volunteers this past year, and all her in-home caregivers.

 

Visitation will be Thursday, February 9, 2023, at Blessed Savior Catholic Church, 8545 West Villard Avenue, Milwaukee from 9:00 AM until the Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM.  Interment will be at Wood National Cemetery, Milwaukee following Mass.
