Shirley M Koshowski

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Shirley Koshowski at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton on Saturday April 24, 2021. Born in Barker’s Point, she was a daughter of the late Robert and Edith (Jones) Hughes.

Shirley worked in Ottawa as a secretary and later as an Executive Assistant at Mount Royal College in Calgary AB, before moving to Fredericton in retirement.  As a loving mother, she was faithful attender of her children’s sports, music, and dance recitals.  She loved bowling (Regina) and playing bridge (Calgary).

She was a member of the Greenwood Drive Baptist Church, organizing the church prayer line, and helping with summer camps as a volunteer.
