Mary Esther Wozny was born to Gilbert and Amada Guerra in Kansas City Missouri, on February 25, 1939. She was a student of Redemptorist Grade School and graduated from the Redemptorist High School of Kansas City in 1956. In 1967, she moved to Omaha where she raised her children. She was an employee of Western Electric for 25 years and proud member of the IBEW Local 1974. She married Richard Wozny in 1986 and they were together until her death.

She was preceded in death by her parents of beloved memory, Gilbert and Amada Guerra, and her brother, Gilbert Jr.  Mary Esther is survived by her children: Mary Fahey Krutzsch (Eric) of Tucson Arizona, Rev. John P.

She was loved and adored by all her family.

Late in life Mary Esther was diagnosed with ALS and spent her final year at Hillcrest Cottages Nursing Care Facility. Mary Esther loved her husband Richard dearly. She worked hard to be a good mother and sister. She loved nothing more than being with her family. That was the love that gathered her husband, children, and sister to her bedside at the moment of her peaceful death.
