SIRASKY, Kathleen, 76, of Springfield, Ohio, passed away Sunday, February 7, 2021 in Hearth & Home at El Camino. She was born August 27, 1944 in Wooster, Ohio, the daughter of the late Kenneth and Edna (Carpenter) Chapman. Kathy was a music teacher in the Springfield City Schools for many years. She loved music, especially teaching and playing the piano and passed this love on to her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed baking and all things chocolate, quilting, swimming and daily walks. She was a longtime member of High Street United Methodist Church and most recently attended Grace PCA Church in Danville, KY. Her faith in Christ was her foundation out of which she lived and loved. She was a beloved long-term member of a Bible study in Springfield, Ohio and had been an active member in Springfield Arts Council for several years. She spoiled her grandchildren, gave unconditional love to all of the dogs in her immediate and extended family and was willing and ready to open her home and her heart to anyone in need--and did so often. Survivors include her husband, John Sirasky; two sons and spouses, Andy & Punam Sirasky, Erlanger, KY and Matt & Melissa Sirasky, Danville, KY; five grandchildren, Dilan and Devan Sirasky and Lucy, Bonnie and Henry Sirasky; one sister, Diane & Bob Antes; brother-in-law, Fred & Marilyn Sirasky; two aunts, Patricia DeVore & JoAnn McClaran, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

John and family: We were so sadden to hear of Kathy’s passing. Our friendship was an old one and a good one for sure. When Florida sister mentioned Kathy’s response to Linda’s passing, exclaiming, “now she is in Heaven.”, our reaction is to say we know that Kathy is there as well. There are so many memories we have shared with both of you. We will keep them in our hearts and treasure those times together. John, I certainly hope and look forward to seeing you while you are in Springfield. Hopefully we can get Gary and others together.

John, Candy shared with me the news of Kathy’s passing and how devoted you were with her throughout her illness. I have lovely memories of our adventures at Hiram College and in our first apartment in Newton MA. I’ll always remember the weekend you drove from Ohio to Boston to propose to Kathy. We were thrilled that she said yes! My thoughts and wishes are with you and your family.

John, Andy and Matt... Please know my heart is with you during this sad time. So many memories of your family and mine, when all our boys were little... Kathy was always smiling and willing to do anything with and for the boys. I remember her coming to my house one Christmas Eve Christmas caroling when she knew it was a very difficult time for me. It was a beautiful snowy night and as I was teary eyed, there was Kathy with the most beautiful smile always with the look of love. Please know there are many wonderful memories, and she has left this world better than when she came..... Love to all of you

- Mary Ann Gayonski, Friday February 12th, 2021

John and family, my deepest sympathy. Kathy always had her beautiful smile to share with everyone. I enjoyed working with her at the Springfield Arts Council and, on several occasions, helping her find just the right fabric for a quilt she was making. Blessing to all.

- Maggie Schief, Thursday February 11th, 2021

Rembering so many good times we shared - driving all over the state looking for fabric, gardening and sharing plants from our yards, books, bible study, the many Kathy Sirasky recipes I still make, vacations, "wine-time" in your driveway and screened-in porch and, best of all, the laughter we shared! This is not the end of your life but the beginning of your glory! I miss you my friend!
