MARY ZEZULKA, beloved wife of the late Alois Zezulka, passed away peacefully in her home on Thursday, August 19, 2021, at the age of 96 years.

Mary leaves to cherish her memory three sons - Joe (Debbie) of London, Ontario; Jerry (Paulette) of Medicine Hat; Ron (Sally) of Calgary; one daughter - Shirley (Roger) Kincheloe of Lethbridge.

Mary was a loving grandmother and great-grandmother to Gwen Zezulka (Clara Fay & Elliot); Geoffrey Zezulka (Lada & Kvitka); Gabrielle Zezulka; Nicholas Zezulka; Leanne Calderwood (Shaun, Sam & Nolan); Jennifer Lehr (Hugh, Holden & Joel); Michael Zezulka (Danielle & Xavier); Michelle Tyslau (Andy, Amelia, Katie, & Sarah); Jamie Puchinger (Kyle, Claire & Hailey). She will also be fondly remembered by her siblings and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mary was born in Liderovice, Czechoslovakia on June 25, 1925, the eldest child of Martin and Jennie Motycka. They immigrated to Canada in 1927 and settled near Raymond, AB. She met Alois Zezulka, who she married on September 9, 1944, and they eventually made their home in Lethbridge. They were founding members of the Czechoslovak Canadian Cultural Society of Southern Alberta and cherished sharing their ethnic traditions, specifically the Christmas celebrations, with family.

Mary was proud of her career in the retail sector, loved camping, fishing, reading, playing cards, games of chance, cooking, and baking. Her greatest pleasure came when she was with family, particularly the great grandchildren.

Her loving memory will remain in our hearts always.
