Linda Kowalczykowski

May 17, 1951 — July 25, 2017

On July 25, 2017, Linda Kowalczykowski, 66, a 26-year resident of Davis, CA passed away peacefully in her home of natural causes. She moved to Davis from Evanston, IL, having also lived in in Eugene, OR. Linda was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and attended St. John's University completing a Bachelor's degree in sociology. During her career, she worked in information services, as a nursery school teacher, and finally as a property manager to help her ailing mother. Linda was passionate about wildlife and animal welfare, enjoyed sailing and skiing, and was an accomplished cook. She was a member of the Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, and Wilderness Society.

Linda is survived by her husband of 44 years, Stephen Kowalczykowski, and her son, Keith, a graduate of Davis High School ('03) and UC San Diego ('07). She was a kind and gentle person, who made people laugh. Linda had a great love for her family and pets, and showed compassion towards all of her friends. She is an irreplaceable part of many lives, and will be missed deeply.
