Nowicki, Coleen B.

March 07, 2006

On March 4, 2006 COLEEN LOVE BURTON NOWICKI, died after a long and valiant battle with breast cancer. Mrs Nowicki was a graduate of Sparrows Point High School and Towson State University. A dedicated educator, Mrs. Nowicki began her career as an English teacher at Lake Clifton High School. After taking time off to raise her two sons, she re-entered the profession as an art teacher, first at the Highlands School and later at Trinity Lutheran School. A lifelong lover of the visual arts, Mrs. Nowicki was instrumental in creating the Art Goes to School Program. The impact of this program was a driving force in the decision of the Harford County Board of Education, to provide art teachers for elementary schools. Mrs. Nowicki was a tireless worker for the youth of the community. She joined with others to successfully campaign for new bleachers at Bel Air High School and signs and safety improvements at Kelley Ball Field. While her sons attended Bel Air High, Mrs. Nowicki ran the concession stand for all sports games, as a member of the Boosters Club. She was also a relentless rooter and volunteer for all of the sports teams on which her sons participated. Mrs. Nowicki is survived by her husband John Walter Nowicki, her sons Bradley Burton Nowicki and Tyler John Nowicki, her mother Margel Burton, brother Stewart Burton, sisters Brenda Brokke, Rita Urben and several nieces and nephews. A celebration of Mrs. Nowicki's life will be held at Lirodendron Mansion, at 504 West Gordon Street on Tuesday March 7 from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. At Mrs. Nowicki's request, memorial contributions may be sent to The Baltimore Museum of Art Educational Fund, or the Oncology Unit at Mercy Hospital.
