Maria Wawierowski, 94 years old of Pleasant Prairie, passed away Monday, June 24, 2019 at her home.

She was born June 2, 1925 in Jaworzno-Długoszyn, Poland, the daughter of the late Jan and Karolina (Leś) Nieużyła. Maria grew up in Poland and was a Holocaust survivor. During the war, she was forced into a labor camp in Germany; she escaped and went to a concentration camp, all between the ages of 15-20 years old. She later settled in Kenosha and lived there for many years.

Maria worked as an assembler for many years at Leblanc Instruments, retiring in 1990. She was a talented seamstress, sewing many clothing items for her family. She was an avid reader, especially historical reads, and recently, Harry Potter. She loved solving crossword puzzles in Polish, and was an excellent decorator, enjoyed painting, and traveling after her retirement. Maria especially cherished time spent with her family.

Survivors include her children, Anthony (Darlene) DeWinter of Delafield, WI, Alice Ktejik of Pleasant Prairie, WI, and Tadeusz Wawierowski of Horicon, WI; grandchildren, Jolie (Andrew) Palmer, Janet (Anthony) Gatlin, John Ktejik, and Michelle Ktejik; great-grandchildren, Katie Palmer, Brooke Palmer, Jack Gatlin, and Elizabeth Gatlin; and sisters, Stanisława (the late Jan) Skorzybot and Alicja (the late Władysław) Starkiewicz.

In addition to her parents, Maria was preceded in death by her husband Jan Wawierowski and siblings, Anna (Maksymilian) Grzybek, Marian (Zofia) Nieużyła, and Janina (Czesław) Alenowicz.

Visitation will take place from 10:00 a.m-11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 28th, at St. Mark Catholic Church, 7117 14th Ave., Kenosha.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. The Bible can bring you much hope and comfort at a time like this. Within its pages are the promise found at Revelation 21:3:4. God is going to end all suffering and death. We also read about the wonderful promise of the resurrection found at John 5:28:29.
