Barbara Ann Kolosek
AIKEN - Barbara Ann Kolosek, 75, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at University Hospital of Augusta, GA on Tuesday, June 13. Born in New Brunswick, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Michael J Kanc and Estelle (Golaszewski) Kanc. She graduated from South River High School and the Katherine Gibbs School of New York City while attending Rutgers University. Her career began at Johnson & Johnson and she retired from the Administrative Office of the Courts of the State of New Jersey where she helped lead their initiative to design and implement a digital case management system for the State Courts. Married 53 years to her high school sweetheart, Ron Kolosek, they moved to Aiken, SC in 2005 where they met many new friends and enjoyed their retirement together. A voracious reader, she enjoyed gardening, travelling, Siamese cats and learning about new technology. She used these loves to help others by volunteering at the Aiken County Animal Shelter, the Aiken County Historical Museum as well as teaching many introductory technology classes for Seniors at the University of South Carolina Aiken. Her greatest joy however was spent each summer vacationing at the beach with her extended family. She will be forever missed and always be in our hearts and minds. Barbara is survived by her husband Ronald Kolosek; her son David Kolosek and daughter Lisa (Kolosek) Guerriero, daughter-in-law Lisa Kolosek; son-in-law Michael Guerriero; her four grandchildren Ella and Grace Kolosek and Ava and Alexa Guerriero; brothers Jeffery Kanc and Michael "Jack" Kanc; sisters-in-law Linda Kanc and Maureen Kanc, and niece Jackie Kanc and her husband Miguel Teixeira. Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Siamese Cat Rescue Center at https://va.siameserescue.org/VAdonate.php
