Obituary for Mrs. Mary Ann Ziemba

Mary Ann Ziemba, 64, of Naples passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 11th at Naples Community Hospital. Formerly of Chicago, IL, Mary Ann has been a resident of Florida for 20 years. Mary Ann was born in Chicago, the daughter of the late Bruno and Betty (Wagner) Kaluzny. She graduated from Kennedy High School and became a licensed hair dresser for many years, later becoming a housewife to take care of her two boys. Mary Ann helped her husband in family businesses for years and was always her husband’s inspiration. Mary Ann loved the beach and boating in Florida. She also enjoyed helping support the family’s charities - most importantly, the Lighthouse of Collier, and First Responders Lives Matter, a charity she started with her husband in 2017. She spent many months helping her husband start First Responders. Mary Ann loved to give back any way she could and help all those she met or knew. Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 44 years, Ron Ziemba; sons, Craig and Jonathan; mother, Betty Kaluzny; mother-in-law, Dolores and father-in-law, Stanley Ziemba; grandchild, Eizekiel; sisters, Kathy Zizzo (Bill) and Cindy Vasquez (Izzy); sister-in-law, Karen Weinrich; brother-in-law, Tommy Weinrich; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins; her loving Golden-Doodles, Stewie and Dexter; and her African Grey parrot, Einstein. Mary Ann was preceded in death by her father, Bruno; and beloved cousin for whom she used to babysit, Meagan O’Brien, who passed at 29.
