Sunday’s Obituary: Alice Heubel Sheldon Novakowski

I am searching the Novakowski family for a friend. Last week’s Sunday Obituary featured Alice’s husband, Joseph Novakowski. Today, Alice is featured. 

Her notice was on GoErie.com. It reads: 

A Devoted caregiver to her family and patients. Alice A. Heubel Sheldon Novakowski, age 75 of Millcreek Twp., died Monday, January 10, 2005 at her residence surrounded by her beloved family. She was born July 26, 1929 in Erie, daughter of the late John Heubel and Alice Richards Heubel Sheldon.
Mrs. Novakowski was employed by the Millcreek Community Hospital as a licensed practical nurse for 29 years. She retired from there and the career she loved in 1992. She was a member of St. Julia Roman Catholic Church. Beyond filling her role of a nurse with love, compassion and a sense of duty, the passion of her life was being a devoted caregiver to her beloved family with whom she lived for and enjoyed spending her time with.
