Bernadette Missik Kascak
Bernadette Kascak, 77, of DeRidder, Louisiana, passed away on June 25, 2023 while bravely battling cancer.
Bernadette was born September 17, 1945 to Veronica and John Missik in Youngstown, Ohio. Youngstown was where she grew up and would later graduate from Chaney High School.

Bernadette immediately lit up any room she entered. She was a joyful presence with her beautiful smile. She loved her family and friends and most of all God. She enjoyed music and concerts, an occasional trip to the casino, gardening, flea markets, and spending time with family and grandkids.
Bernadette was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Kascak, her parents John and Veronica Missik, one brother Charles “Chip” Missik, three sisters Evelyn Roth, Andrea Anderson, and Laurie Missik.

Her grandchildren, Garret, Chloe, and Kaleb. And her “extra” Parker. One soon to be great grandchild Sylas. Many cousins, family and friends.
