Doris Claire Kuszler

August 26, 1933 — August 22, 2023


Beloved daughter of Claire (Silbersack) and Ivan Kuszler, Survived by three first cousins: Mark Silbersack (Ruth Schwallie), Roger Silbersack (Barbara) and Lynn Streck.


Bom in 1933 on her Dad's birthday. Proud retiree of Procter & Gamble with 34 years of service, Longtime volunteer at the Lord's Bounty and Mercy Franciscan Terrace. Member of St. Clare Church since 1940.


Doris loved the College Hill Historical Society, the Bengals, house and garden tours, jazz concerts at XU, Sunday hikes with the American Walkers (Editor of The Pedometer for 12 years), Bud Light, Jeopardy, shopping at thrift stores, reading the Enquirer from front page to last, ushering at the Shubert and Tan, WLW radio, and playing cards with her cohorts from the class of '51 at OLA: Margie, Joan, Jan, Mary, Jackie and Cathy. Oh, yes. And Fuzzy Navels.


Doris was a graduate of UC Evening College where she was a member of Phi Kappa Epsilon. She loved to travel. Among her favorite trips were those to the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska and Europe (11 countries in 22 days!), river cruises on the American Queen and the Riverboat Explorer Barge with her Llanfair friends, but most of all, she lived and died with the Cincinnati Reds from the age of 14 when she learned how to score baseball games.


Born too early to be a "real" female sportswriter she was thrilled to write a monthly column for the New York Giants fan newspaper before their move to San Francisco. One of her fondest memories was a cross country train ride to California and Las Vegas with Bamey Rapp's Redleg Rooters. Then there was a memorable visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY for the induction of Sparky Anderson, Tony Perez and Marty Brennaman, she also attended the first and last games played at Riverfront/Cinergy Field.


Visitation will be held at St. Clare Church, 1443 Cedar Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45224 on Tuesday August 29, 2023 from 10:00 AM until Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 AM.  Condolences at


Rounding third and heading for home, Doris wishes to thank God for a long and wonderful life.
