Forever and For Always “My Beautiful Sweetie Pie!”

Beloved, Cherished Wife and Sweetheart to Andrew Kozbial for forty-nine years, Grace Kozbial passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital In Hamilton, Ontario, on April 15, 2021. Predeceased by her father, Stanisław Wojcik, her mother, Wanda Perschon, and her brother, Roman Perschon. Survived by numerous cousins and extended family.

Grace was a very talented and highly dedicated teacher and mentor for over thirty years. She always considered it a privilege to have worked in the service of children. Grace was a B.A. graduate from the Faculty of Social Sciences, at McMaster University, in Hamilton, Ontario. Grace considered herself to be a ‘lifelong learner’ and was keen to explore the banquet of opportunities and interests that life has to offer. She enjoyed ballroom dancing, musical theatre, concerts, art galleries, quilting with her best friends, reading, flowers, sunsets, and quiet moments. Whatever the occasion it was most always enjoyed together, holding hands, with her husband Andrew, ‘Sweethearts’ from the age of two.

Most heartfelt thanks and deepest gratitude to all of the extremely hard working doctors, nurses, and staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital, for giving Grace all of their loving, compassionate, comfort and care. Memories of Grace’s beautiful smile, her kind, sweet, gentle demeanour will live on through those many whose lives she touched over the years.

If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society, or a Charity of choice.
