Jean was my sponsor for Confirmation when I was in 6th grade at Christ the King. I remember her mother coming to Jean's house a lot. Jean was very good to me and I spent a lot of time at her house. I am very sorry for the loss of your Mom, Lisa and Joe. Gail Buoy

Lisa and Joe - I'm sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I don't know that we've ever met, but your dad and I were cousins; your grandfather Joe was my mom's (Cecelia Rechner Cusick) older brother. She and he were two of the ten Rechner children whose family ran the bakery on 12th Street. I have lived in Columbus Ohio for over 30 years, but grew up in Springfield. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss. Mary Cusick Dougherty
