Constance Cybulski, a retired postal worker who was active in her East Lovejoy neighborhood, died Friday in Hospice Buffalo, Cheektowaga. She was 84.
Born in Buffalo, the former Constance Yeostros was the youngest of four children and was a 1949 graduate of Kensington High School. Her family operated the Yeostros Chocolates shop on Broadway across from St. John Kanty Catholic Church.
The mother of seven, she began working for the U.S. Postal Service in 1969 and was a letter-sorting machine operator at the main post office on William Street, primarily on the overnight shift. She retired in 1992.
Mrs. Cybulsi was a member of the Iron Island Preservation Society of Lovejoy and served as a volunteer for Lovejoy’s Iron Island Festival and for East Lovejoy Little League Baseball. She also was active in the former St. Agnes Catholic Church.
An avid gardener, she was the winner of several Lovejoy in Bloom contests. She enjoyed cooking and baking and was known for her chocolate chip cookies.
She also enjoyed playing pinochle and attended all of the sporting events in which her children and grandchildren played.
Her husband, William V., a retired brigadier general in the Army National Guard, died in 2000.
Survivors include daughters Helen Marie Kast, Susan Marie Nardozzi and Dina Marie Bycina; three sons, John, Matthew and Luke; 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
