For the past 7 years she had been a resident at Clement Manor in Greenfield. She was 85 years old. Mary Jane, the daughter of Maurice and Agnes Braatz Corrigan, was born in Ashland, WI, on April 27, 1926, and grew up in Iron Mountain/Kingsford, Michigan. She moved to Milwaukee after High School where she was employed at the Weyenburg Shoe Company. On October 11, 1947 she married Richard Zalewski and the couple moved to Cedarburg in 1955. During their 51 years of marriage, Mary Jane and Richard raised 3 children - Mark (Evonne) Zalewski of Greendale, John (Sharon) Zalewski of Saukville, and Barbara (James) Johnson of Bayside.

She is also survived by five great-grandchildren; Zach and Connor Serafin and Aaron, Adam and Aerissa Zalewski, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Mary Jane loved to celebrate her Irish Heritage and was very close to her twin brother Tom, younger brother George, and sisters, Shirley and Patricia. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard. A devoted wife and mother, Mary Jane also worked part-time at the Cedarburg Red Owl, Montgomery Ward, and Coffee Pot Restaurant - where she brightened the days of everyone she met.
