Mary Jo Wojcik
Mary Jo (Clark) Wojcik, 68, entered into eternal life surrounded by her loving family on October 29,2021.
Mary Jo was born August 28, 1953, in Appleton WI, to the late Theodore Clark Jr and Irene (Zehren) Clark. She graduated from St. John’s Highschool in Little Chute, WI, in 1972. After high school, Mary Jo attended Bellin College of Nursing in Green Bay, WI. After graduation she became a RN. She was employed at Bellin Memorial Hospital and worked in labor and delivery for a number of years, caring for mothers and babies- which was her passion.
On March 1, 1980, she married the love of her life, Gene G. Wojcik Sr. Together they raised 5 children in the New Franken area.
While in college Mary Jo accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior and became an active member in various church ministries. For over the last 20 years she was a faithful member of Bay City Baptist Church in Green Bay, WI, and especially enjoyed caring for the babies in the nursery.
What gave her the most joy, was caring for and watching her children and grandchildren grow up. The holidays, Easter, birthday parties and family get togethers with all the children and grandchildren there were her favorite. Mary Jo was an awesome gift giver and she especially enjoyed the look of surprise and sheer joy on the grandchildren faces when they open their gifts. Mary Jo loved her flower garden, reading, traveling, volunteering as a poll worker, cooking for her family, playing with her grandchildren, being outside and listening to her family tell the funniest stories. She had the best laugh!
Mary Jo is dearly loved and sorely missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by her husband of over 41 years, Gene G. Wojcik Sr.; her children, Rebekah (Ryan) King, Gene G. Wojcik Jr., Elizabeth (Jake) Filipiak, Daniel (Anna) Wojcik, Rachel (special friend Dakota Behl) Wojcik; grandchildren, Phillip, Emma, Senora, Carlene, Cora, Maverick, Mariah, Olivia, and Asher; siblings, Chris (Karie Wolfson) Clark, Pat (Marianne) Clark, Tim (Tammy) Clark, Sadie (Ned) Austin, and Gregg (Brenda) Clark. She is further survived by numerous nephews, nieces, other family, and friends.
In addition to her parents Mary Jo was preceded in death by 2 infant siblings, David and Thomas; her in-laws, Norbert Wojcik and Marge (Parent) Wojcik; brothers-in-law, Gary Wojcik and Robert G. Wojcik, Sr.; a niece, Angela Clark and nephew, Jesse Wojcik.
