In loving memory of Anna Kowal (Nowicka) who passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 92, Thursday, October 8th, 2020. Born in Khivchany, Lviv Oblast, Ukraine, on January 29th, 1928. During World War II, Anna was forcibly taken by invading Nazis to work as a slave labour in Germany until 1945. Following this conflict, she moved to Paris, France, where she met Eugene Kowal. They married and settled in Coniston. Proud of her Ukrainian heritage, she was a founding member of St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church. She acted as President of the St. Michael’s Women’s League. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, pickling, cooking perogies, borsch, cabbage rolls and other fine Ukrainian foods. Anna loved birds, both watching and feeding them. She will be remembered as friendly, kind, considerate, meticulous, and devoted to her family. As well, she was attached to and loved her dogs, Cocoa and Patches. Her knowledge of the community life was extensive, and she had many stories to tell. Beloved wife of Eugene (predeceased in 2009). Loving mother of Barbara (Jerry Kocijowsky) of Oakville, Luba Anne Kowal, and Petrusia Catherine Kowal of Coniston (predeceased 2016). Cherished grandmother of Eugenie Kowal of Oakville, Sonia Stasiuk (Omari Spence) of Brampton and great-grandmother to Riley and Lillian Spence of Brampton. Sadly missed by the Makuch family of Mississauga, the Shewciw family of Sudbury, and Magdalena Bezzubyk and family, Dr. Nadia Plach (godchild) and family of Burlington, and family in Ukraine and Germany. Special thanks to Fr. Bodnar and Dr. Andrew Kuchtaruk. “Vichnya Pamyat”.

Resting at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. (Friends may call 6-8pm Friday with Panakhyda at 7pm Friday). Funeral Mass in St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, 48 William St., Coniston, Saturday, October 24th, 2020 at 9am. Interment in the family plot at St. John’s Cemetery, Garson.

To the family of Anna, we wish to send our memories of her. I first met your mother at our wedding, 53 years ago. She was the friend of my in laws, as our father worked in Coniston. Then our contact was through church events , as St. Mary's would join in events with St. Michaels in the Ukrainian Catholic Women's League. She was then very active in her community church. Always present and happily busy at all the teas at her church.. Such a gentle and soft spoken lady, and a pleasure to know. We are sorry to hear of her passing. Vichnaya Pamyat. May she rest in peace. Jean and Peter Kozelko
