Kozari – Bowland


Kaylee passed away peacefully at her home with her family and friends at her side on April 20, 2015. She came into the world on June 2, 1998 at Penticton Regional Hospital. Kaylee is the beautiful daughter of Tammy Kozari (Rob) and Scott Bowland (Kristina) and will be dearly missed by her brothers Reece Verrier, Grayson and Cameron Bowland and Kyle and Sean Peters.

Kaylee showed everyone so much strength over the last 9 months while she battled cancer. Kaylee has brought inspiration to all of us through her strong beautiful personality. She was known by many people as being caring, loving, giving, and thoughtful by being able to put everyone before herself. She brought so much love for everyone around her, especially her boyfriend Colten Braid who was beside her every step of the way. She spent her last 9 months enjoying the love for retail therapy, shopping online almost every day. Kaylee carried a beautiful smile no matter where she went, with beauty that shone through her beautiful blue eyes. Kaylee is going to be dearly missed by so many.

Kaylee will forever be in the thoughts of her family. Grandma Debbie Kozari (Steve), Papa Steve Kozari (Brenda), Uncle Steven Kozari (Diana), cousins Jackson and Nate Kozari. Nana Johanna Bowland, Grandpa Gary Bowland, Uncle Mark Bowland (Brooke), Uncle Darin Bowland (Minna), Aunt Katrina Kwok (Henry), Aunt Patti Michaels-Dorio, cousins Haley, Trevor, Simon, Isla, Emma, Tumas, Aleksi.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Penticton Secondary School in care of Kaylee’s Scholarship fund which will carry Kaylee’s legacy on forever.

A Celebration of Kaylee’s Life will be held on Saturday April 25th at 1:00pm at the Penticton Lakeside Resort Ballroom.
