She is survived by her sister, Brooke Kozlowski (Anthony Sharp); and her niece, Mya Hunter, all residing in Niles; her father, Alan S. Kozlowski; and stepmother, Jo Ann Kozlowski residing in Indio, California.

She will also be leaving her aunts, Pam Thomas, Lorrie Hullinger, Susan Kozlowski Thompson, of Niles, and Kris Kozlowski Parge, of Indio, California; her cousins, Cory Colcord, of Chicago, Beth Thompson Aurand, of Niles, and Amy Thompson Duplan, of Dallas, Texas.

Arrangements are entrusted to Hoven Funeral Home, Buchanan.
