Marie "Cathy" Kujawa

August 1, 1951 ~ May 14, 2022 (age 70)


Marie "Cathy" Catherine Kujawa, 70, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, May 14, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

Cathy was born on August 1, 1951, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Wausau, WI to Robert and Thelma (Jacobsen) Sullivan. On June 14, 1969, Cathy married the love of her life, Walter “Wally” Kujawa, in Kingsford, MI.

Cathy was employed at Moxness Products from 1978 until it closed in 1997. She then returned to school and earned an Administrative Professional Associate Degree from Northcentral Technical College, graduating with honors in 2000. Cathy then worked for the Wausau Area Chamber of Commerce for six years, Kenny Construction Co. for one year, and Penske Truck Leasing for six years, retiring in 2013.

Cathy was an avid reader, movie enthusiast, and very much enjoyed attending live performances. She was always happy to help raise money and volunteer at many organizations including, the American Cancer Society, the Workplace Volunteer Council of Marathon County, the Boys and Girls Club of Wausau, and the Wausau Area Jaycees. But nothing brought Cathy more joy than being with her family and friends. She especially loved spoiling all the children in her family.

Cathy is survived by her three children, Kevin (Lisa) Kujawa, Bryan (Chris) Kujawa, and Christine Detert; four grandchildren, Jessica (Ben) Hermes, Taylor Kujawa, Sasha (Cory) Kesy, and Nick (Alicia) Schroedel; great-grandchildren, Skylar Thompson and Asher Hermes, Gavin, Emma and Nora Kesy, and Natalie and Adalyn Schroedel; siblings, Robert "Bob" Sullivan Jr., Patty (Dave) Knapp, Carol Wesolowski, John "Jack" (Shannon) Sullivan, Sharon Sullivan, James "Jim" (Lynn) Sullivan, Barb Mesenberg, and Colleen "Kelly" (Tom) Rueger; five siblings-in-law; many cousins, nieces, and nephews; and her fur baby, Bessie.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Walter; parents, Robert and Thelma; brother, Dan'l Sullivan; brother-in-law, Stanley "Jr." Wesolowski; sister-in-law, Laurie (Craig) Marson; and parents-in-law, Walter and Mary Ann Kujawa.

Funeral service for Cathy will be held on May 25, 2022, at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 6101 Zinser St, Weston, WI 54476. Visitation will take place from 9:00 am until the funeral Mass at 11:00 am and Rite of Committal at St. Agnes Catholic Cemetery. Cathy and her late husband, Wally, will be buried at the same time. A luncheon for family and friend will follow at the church.

The family wishes to send a thank you to the many compassionate and caring staff at Marshfield Medical Center–Weston and Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice for the care provided to Cathy. This gratitude especially goes out to those who cared for her in her final days—including Laine, RN; Lydia, RN; Samantha, RN; Kaylie, RN; Tina, RN; and Kari K, RN.
