Emily Kathleen Wujek
Emily passed away in Indianapolis on Tuesday, January 14, age 24 years. Emily was born in Indianapolis on November 16, 1995 to Dennis and Jackie (Sullivan) Wujek. She was a loving daughter and sister who cared for animals - especially her cats Ravioli and LeMeowski. Emily treasured her time spent at summer Camp Palawopec in southern Indiana and her favorite holiday was Halloween. She liked listening to Frank Sinatra and putting together puzzles. Emily enjoyed her trips to Yellowstone and Niagara Falls and San Francisco but was especially fond of the Red River Gorge cliffs in Kentucky. She enjoyed a rare steak, Ale-8-one soda, and sour Skittles. Emily was a beautiful and brave young lady who, above all, loved her family. She will be dearly missed.
In addition to her parents, left to cherish her memory are her two brothers, Robert (Becka) Wujek of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Christopher of Zionsville; maternal grandparents Robert and Jackie Sullivan of Johns Creek, Georgia. Aunt Donna and Uncle Brian Hunt of Saginaw, Michigan (cousins Shelby and Nicole); and Aunt Anne and Uncle Robert Sullivan of Wilmette, Illinois (cousins Joseph and Caroline). Emily was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents Ted and Ann Wujek.
Visitation will take place at Flanner Buchanan-Zionsville, 105 W. Pine St., Zionsville on Sunday, January 19, from 4- 8 p.m. A Funeral Mass for Emily will be celebrated on Monday, January 20 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Zionsville with additional visitation at the church one hour prior to service. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider Hope Academy of Indianapolis.

Wuj was such a baller. One of the coolest people I’ve ever met. I’m really lucky to have known her. I feel weird/numb/heart broken inside. This really sucks. Thank you for being my friend and for making me feel way cooler than I really am.

I am so sorry to hear that the bright spark Emily brought to this world is now only a memory. I enjoyed Emily's humor and wisdom while working as her school counselor at Z'West. She often seemed wise beyond her years and would light up the room when she walked in. How incredibly hard this is - Peace be with you.

Emily took a chance and took me under her wing as a manager and taught me the ins and outs of being a hard, disciplined manager. I will forever miss her smile and laughter.

My favorite memory of Wuj was when we played 7th and 8th grade basketball together at ZWEST. She was the kind of person that made sure no one was left out. She was a friend to anyone no matter who they were or what they looked like. I am so broken for the Wujek family. She was truly an amazing human.

Very sorry for your loss. I have never met Emily, but my stepdaughter is about the same age, and is in the ICU fighting for her life. I can't imagine the pain, you feel now, but I lost my brother about 15 years ago, and time is about the only thing that helped me to heal. God bless your family at this difficult time.

Condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of having Emily on the ZWest basketball team and I not only enjoyed developing her basketball skills but loved her laugh and smiles and willingness to be a part of which ever team or position she played.
