We, the family, are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Judi Kowalchuk on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at the Beausejour Hospital.
She was predeceased by her husband Bill; parents Kathleen and Richard Merke; sisters Bernice McDonald, Adriane Day and infant sister Peggy; brother Jerry Merke and brother-in-law Ernest Schreyer.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Renee; granddaughter Teagan and dog Sheera. She is also survived by her siblings Valerie Schreyer, Kenneth (Lisa) Merke; brother-in-law Gordon McDonald and David Day; sister-in-law Rose Rondeau and numerous nieces and nephews.
She had a life long career as a teacher with Agassiz School Division, touching the lives of many students. Judi was very creative and studied education and art in university; just a very creative person. The happiest days of her life was with Bill, the love of her life. In the later years she cherished time she spent with her dog, Sheera, that was like a child to her.
