Regina Zuzelski was born on March 17, 1924, in Milwaukee, WI, the daughter of Joseph and Martha (Mamayek) Zuzelski. When she was a young girl, her family moved to a farm near Thorp, where she was raised and received her education at Blueberry School.

She was a former member of St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church. Virginia had many interests, including: shopping, especially at the Dollar Store; going out to eat, she loved her hamburger, slice of pie and soda; and going to the library.

She is survived by: one sister, Stella (Raymond) Mecha of West Allis; four nieces: Denise Mecha, Joan (Darrel) Pagel, Kathy Kerr, and Ruth Jutrzonka; one nephew, Lawrence Zuzelski; other relatives and friends.
