To the entire Chishko family our love and prayers from Maryland. Our favorite thing was to go to Bob Evan’s or Denny’s with your mom and dad when we were visiting Greensburg and it was our tradition. Our condolences and may she rest in paradise.

Mr. Chisholm, Susanna and Carolyn, my sincerest condolences on the loss of your wife and mother. Mrs. Chishko was always very friendly and humorous with all those she met. I always loved talking with her when I was in town visiting my family.
Mrs. Chishko will be missed greatly by those who knew and loved her.
May God grant y’all His peace and comfort during this time of sorrow and loss.
