It is with a very heavy heart that UAFD informs everyone of the passing of UAFD Member Jonnell Kaminski.
Jonnell was very active socially in the department for many years. She was referred to as “Mamma K” from many members as she treated them like her own kids.
At this time, we extend our deepest sympathy to his Bob & Kris and the rest of Kaminski family.
