Josephine "Jo" ZubaPassed peacefully on Monday, March 8, 2021 at the age of 94 years. Reunited with her husband, Richard of 63 years and their son Francis; who have been impatiently waiting for her to catch up. She survived raising four unruly sons, which instilled in her the patience of a saint. They now survive her: Michael (Cris), Tom (Linda), Pete (Tricia) and Bill (Mary). She spent the second half of her life spoiling her grandchildren rotten: Jessi (Sonya), Adam, Erin (Tim O'Heron), Josh, Zach, Isaac, Joe Sliwinski, Tony, Ben and Michael; and they are all better people for it. She is further endeared to her great-grandchildren Rutledge, Ferris and Maelyn; countless nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Preceded in death by her sisters: Margie Aumann, Betty O'Donnell and Rita Maher and survived by her sister Fran Longhini. Born on Milwaukee's East Side, she spent her entire life in the city and was a Milwaukeean through and through. She hung out at Wolski's and bowled in leagues at Landmark Lanes before either was cool. She enjoyed a cocktail or two, and she and her sister Rita were often bad influences on each other in the best way possible. Her tuna casserole was delicious; her candy drawer - epic. She loved to gamble and her lucky streaks were famous. Her sons still argue over who in-herited that gift from her. She had beautiful hands and an even more beautiful heart. She used both to hold her loved ones safe and close all these years. In lieu of flowers, go out and buy a scratch off lottery ticket. She would get a kick out of that, and maybe her luck will find you too. Visitation Wednesday, March 17 from 9:30 to 11:00 AM at ST. ROMAN CHURCH (1810 W. Bolivar Ave) followed by the celebration of Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM. Entombment St. Adalbert Cemetery.
