Frances G. Ruschel, 84, born December 1, 1934 on the West Side of Cleveland, died August 17, 2019 in her assisted living apartment at Legacy Place in Parma Ohio. She was relatively healthy and very mobile until shortly before her death. She was the only child of Gizella (nee Kovacs) and Frank Dvorak, and for about 14 years the only grandchild of her immigrant grandparents who were from Hungary, Bohemia, and Slovakia—all on the West Side of Cleveland—thus she was always visiting and close to those families. She married John R. Ruschel (1931-2010) in 1955 who was from Washington PA and in the U.S. Navy at the time; they met while he was on leave and staying with one of his sisters Jean who lived nearby in Cleveland. Together Frances and John had seven children: John, Brian, Frank, Donna, Gary, Diana, and Paul (Paul died in 2017). Grandchildren are Frank, Kyle, Hannah, Emma, and the late Elizabeth. Her husband worked for and retired from Ohio Bell; they raised their children mainly in Parma. Frances had a private funeral and burial at Holy Cross Cemetery.
