POLAND, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Natalie Gwen Kozicky, 59, died Wednesday afternoon, June 17, 2020 at St. Elizabeth Health Center.
Natalie was born July 12, 1960 in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Michael and Theresa Armeni Kitt. Raised in Poland, Natalie lived in the same house she grew up in until her passing.
