The World of Frances Cimperman...from my eyes

Okay, this is definitely an Off the Beaten path page. I have thrown in a bunch of history, which has been passed down by my grandmother. My Grandmother lived her entire life in Cleveland, Ohio and she had many amazing stories about the city and her life in it.

From The Plain Dealer, Cleveland's largest newspaper:

FRANCES J. CIMPERMAN, age 95, passed away April 20, 2003. Beloved wife of the late Cleveland Detective John J. Cimperman; dear mother of Dolores Freiberger (deceased) (Robert), Ralph J. (Anna Mae) of Newark, DE., John D. (Mary Helen, deceased), Carole J. Laird (Ralph) of New Berlin, WI.; loving grandmother of 17 grandchildren; devoted great-grandmother of 28 great-grandchildren. She was an active member of the Altar and Rosary Society, Society for the Propagation of the Faith and other charitable organizations. She worked as a loan officer at Women's Federal Savings and Loan and as a secretary for the late Monsignor McBride. She was one of the original parishioners of Annunciation Catholic Church. VISITATION WILL BE HELD AT THE CORRIGAN FUNERAL HOMES, LORAIN AT W. 148 ST., WEDNESDAY 2-4 AND 7-9 P.M. Mass of Christian Burial Thursday, April 24 at St. Vitus parish at 6019 Lausche Ave. at 10 a.m. Interment Holy Cross Cemetery. www.cleveland.com/obits
Published in The Plain Dealer from 4/22/2003 - 4/23/2003.

    I am a Cimperman as well from the Cleveland area. I have never heard of this restaurant. Curious if it is related to John and Eleanor Cimperman who lived in Euclid until they died recently?
