    Wanda Zagozdzon-Wosik, aged 76, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many, passed away on September 1, 2023, after a heroic and intense battle with brain cancer. Born in Warsaw, Poland, she graduated from Warsaw University of Technology and began her career at the Institute of Technology in Warsaw. She later continued her professional life in Houston, Texas, as a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Houston. Upon her retirement from the University of Houston at the end of 2022, she was honored with the title of Professor Emeritus.

    Wanda's curiosity and passion for learning, research, and working with students remained unwavering throughout her career. She left a lasting impression on everyone she met, living by her principles and adding charm to the lives of her family and friends with her unique sense of humor and intelligence. She is survived by her devoted husband, Jarek Wosik; her loving son, Jedrek; her admired sister, Hanna Milczarek; and her adored grandson, Henry.

    Wanda Wosik had hoped to create an Endowed Scholarship Fund supporting University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering students. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a gift to the Wanda Wosik Memorial Fund in Wanda’s Memory.
