1944 – 2021
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. She was preceded in death by her parents and her younger sister, Linda Snow. In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association at
