In Celebration of

Christine Kowalski

February 23, 1930 -  January 5, 2022

Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at the age of 91. Loving wife of the late Joseph Kowalski. Beloved mother of Richard (Valerie), Stefan (Monika), Edward (predeceased), and Elaine (Richard). Cherished Babcia of Janina (Reenie), Adam (Elinor), Mark, Peter (Joanna), Anton, Robert, Alexander, and Thomas. Prababcia to Aaron, Susana and Conrad. Christine will be deeply missed by her sister Wanda McPherson, sister-in-law Wanda Niejadlik, nephews, extended family, and friends.

Christine was extremely proud of her Polish heritage and passed this on to her children and grandchildren. Christine was an active member of The Polish Ladies Circle: Branch 1-7, The Polish Alliance of Canada, and The Polish Association of Toronto. She spent many enjoyable times at Polish functions, including helping co-ordinate The Annual Peach Festival and Fall Bazaar. Above all, Christine was devoted to her family, her parents, her children and grandchildren, and took great pleasure and pride in their accomplishments. Her passing leaves a void in our lives.
