Mary E. Zukas

October 4, 1947 — July 10, 2023

Mary Elizabeth Zukas, 75, of Omaha, passed away Monday, July 10 after a 2-year battle with cancer. Preceded in death by husband, Kenneth V. Zukas (2006), and her parents, Dennis and Rosemary Pabich. She leaves behind her two daughters, Christina Zukas and Maureen Kleymann, son-in-law, Jay and her grandsons, Adam and Aaron, her brother, Dennis and, and her sister, Christine.

A native of Chicago, she married Ken in 1968 and so began their journey that included many stops due to Ken’s service to the Air Force and the railroads. It was the Union Pacific that finally brought them to Omaha in 1977 and this became home for the next 46 years.

Mary had a passion for English literature, earning her Undergrad and Masters degrees in English from UNO. She had a lifelong love of writing, reading, animals, cooking, gardening, and until the very end, riding and caring for her horse Zee Zee. She will be greatly missed.

A private burial for family members only will follow.

In lieu of flowers, we invite you to make a donation to Elkhorn Equestrian Center in her honor. Ph: 402-238-2027
