blue star momsCOSHOCTON – Blue Star Mothers OH59 are making sure Coshocton’s fallen are not forgotten this Memorial Day.

There are almost 100 KIA/MIA Memorial Bridges in Coshocton County and the group randomly selected one of them from each of Coshocton’s 22 townships to feature at the Coshocton Public Library during the month of May. The display includes pictures of the individuals, facts about their service and a photograph of their marker. It also includes some memorabilia of the group’s members such as a 1952 Newcomerstown High School year book honoring a relative who was killed in action in Korea and a telegram letting a family know their relative had died in World War I.

The Blue Star Mothers meet monthly at the Church of the Nazarene Adult Ministry Center, 1030 Orange St. Pictured working on the display are Blue Star Mothers: Cathy Meek, Kitty Exline and Marge Pizzino.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
