Julia V. Kowalski, 95

ADAMS, Mass. — Mrs. Julia Veronica (Demby) Kowalski passed away after a short illness on January 3, 2020, at the age of 95 years and 10 months. She was surrounded by her family at the time of her passing.

She was born in Adams, Mass., to William and Julia (Ramocki) Demby on March 2, 1924. She attended schools in Adams and graduated from the former Adams High School.

Julia was married to Leonard W. Kowalski on January 8, 1945, for 66 years until his passing on October 21, 2011.

She is survived by her daughters, Sandra Diaferio, whose husband passed away in 2012, and Nancy and husband James Kenison; her sons and their spouses, Norm and Sheila Kowalski and Ron and Marcia Kowalski, six grandchildren, Julie and Tad Davis, Becky and Kyle Brault, Michael and Jennifer Kowalski, Jordan and Ami Kowalski, Suzann Kowalski, and Jennifer Kowalski; and six great-grandchildren, Viktor and Trevor Kowalski, MacKenzie, Grady, and Shea Brault, and Taylor Davis.

She was predeceased by her sister Jeannette.

Julia was an exceptional wife, mother and grandmother. She loved and was devoted to Len and her children, all young children, especially her grandchildren. She worked hard for all of her life at a variety of jobs, including 25 years at General Electric, from which she retired in January 1985. She took great pride in her home, and was determined and able to remain in it until her final days.
