Janna Lea Kowalski (nee Reid)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Janna Lea Kowalski (nee Reid) on October 24, 2023. In her final days and hours, Janna was surrounded by those who loved her. Janna was born on October 19, 1984 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. She was the daughter of Nancy Cameron Riggs (Roger) and David Reid (Corinne).

Janna was predeceased by her loving father in February, 2023.
Janna attended UPEI where she received her Bachelor of Science and then furthered her education by completing her LPN in Calgary. Janna spent time living in Australia, Korea, and Calgary before returning to Prince Edward Island to raise her family with her husband, Ryan Kowalski. Janna will be remembered by all those who knew her as the heart of every room. She had the warmest smile, an easy-going laugh, and always made others feel comfortable wherever she went.
