Obituary of Cheryl Lea Kowalik


December 19, 1978 – October 11, 2023


It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden death of our dear Cheryl on October 11, 2023.  She leaves behind her two sons, Ethan and Trevor, her loving parents, Richard and Bonnie Kozarichuk, her sisters, Cinnamin (Jeff) Johnstone and Jodie (Jeff) Boverhof, her nieces and nephews, Taylor, Autumn, Mya and Liam (predeceased 2019) and her loving dog Suki.


Cheryl was a beloved daughter, sister, mother, aunt, friend and colleague who left an impressionable mark on the hearts of those who knew and loved her. 


Cheryl was a bright light who brought happiness and love into our lives. She was the glue that kept us together. Cheryl loved her sons more than anything and consistently showed her love of her family.  Growing up Cheryl enjoyed horseback riding and was full of life and radiant energy.  She pursued her dream to become a paramedic where she served over 24 years. Cheryl’s devotion to helping others made her an outstanding paramedic and she touched the lives of countless people that she worked with and cared for.


People close to Cheryl knew her immense love for her family, where they enjoyed family vacations and many happy events together.


Though Cheryl left this world too early, her flame will live on in the hearts of all those who knew her. Cheryl’s “happy face” and beautiful smile will be etched in our memories forever and she will be deeply missed. 


A private family funeral will be held. 


Cheryl’s family, along with her EMS family will welcome relatives and friends to a "Celebration of Life” Visitation which will be held Sunday October 22 from 4:30 - 8:00pm at the Armenian Community Centre - 156 Martindale Rd, St. Catharines.


If desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation to Gillian’s Place, the Humane Society or a charity of your choosing would be appreciated.
