The Kokocki Family Endowment Fund

The Kokocki Family Endowment Fund was established to honor the late Karen Kokocki. The fund exists to provide support for L’Arche Saint John, which works with people with intellectual disabilities. Karen shared her joy for life with volunteers, artists, teachers, friends, and family, in a manner consistent with the mission of L’Arche.

Karen’s mom cherished Karen from the day she was born, December 25, 1952 in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Her dad Mike, mom Martina, sister Betty, and brothers Bernie, Eddie and John shared their love and support for Karen.

Karen loved her chocolate bars, potato chips, homemade perogies, an occasional cigarette and drink of rum, and time with her secret boy friends. She freely showed her love for all members of her family and her friends, but would express her view when something did not meet her approval.

She is missed.

The Community Foundation is extremely pleased to be entrusted with this important Fund.
