Barbara A. Ziemanski, 83, Wausau, died Thursday, March 11, 2021, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, surrounded by her family.
She was born Jan. 2, 1938, in Berlin, Wis., the daughter of the late Leonard and Helen (Mathia) Grota. She married Richard Ziemanski on July 30, 1960, in Oshkosh. He preceded her in death on Dec. 7, 1990.
Barb was a homemaker, a home daycare provider, a bookkeeper and enjoyed delivering flowers for Blossom’s and Bows. More recently she was a housekeeper at the Aspirus Wausau Hospital where she retired in 2018.

Among Barb’s favorite memories were the countless family trips to Oshkosh to visit the Grota’s, Resheske’s and Behling’s, and the never-to-be-forgotten gatherings with her “CB Radio” gang.
