  Mildred Dooley Cathcart in her column, Visiting with Neighbors, wrote on 24 February 1995 in the Daily Iowegian:  
  Friends were sorry to hear of the death of another former Jerome resident, Richard Ponsetto, who had lived for a number of years in Arkansas.  His wife, too, died not too long ago with cancer.  Richard was visiting with his brother, John, when we had our first Jerome reunion.  He came for a short time and we were all happy to see him.
  Many of you will remember the Mike Ponsetto family and their children, Peter, Mary Louise, Leon, Jim and Richard.  Now only Mary Louise and John survive.
