Florence ‘Flo’ T. Yurcich

Farrell woman was Inn 62 waitress, enjoyed polka

---- — A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Friday for Florence “Flo” T. Yurcich of 432 Patt Drive, Farrell. She passed away peacefully after an extended illness at 8:30 a.m. Monday (7-8-13) in her home, which she shared with her son and caregiver, Mark Yurcich. She was 83.

Mrs. Yurcich was born Jan. 3, 1930, in Cambridge Springs, a daughter of Frank and Antonia Styborski.

One of 15 children growing up on a large family dairy farm, she attended a one-room schoolhouse in Cambridge Springs along with her siblings.

Florence met her husband Peter while working as a waitress at the former Alliance College in Cambridge Springs. They were married Nov. 27, 1948, and enjoyed 53 years together until Pete’s passing on Sept. 15, 2002.

She was a member of St. Anthony’s Church in Sharon.

In her spare time, Flo enjoyed traveling to polka dances throughout the area and taught many of her grandchildren her favorite dance.

The time that she most treasured was spent with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, whom she loved dearly and spoiled as often as possible, always putting their needs before her own.

Many will remember Flo for her quick wit and smiling face as a waitress for more than 20 years at Inn 62 in Hermitage, where she touched many lives. Her fun-loving personality brought many smiles and laughs to her many nieces and nephews through the years.

Flo is survived by her children, Carolyn Janosko and her husband Robert, Hermitage; Mark Yurcich and Ralph Deets, at home; Barbara Mason and her husband Michael, West Middlesex; and Andrea Fletcher and her husband Robert, Farrell. She also leaves behind three brothers, John Styborski; Paul Styborski and his wife Sara; and Stanley Styborski; and three sisters, Frances Taylor and her husband Michael; Mary Alice Malinowski and her husband Robert; and Judy Novak.

Also surviving are: her grandchildren, Kelley Yurcich, Kim Hnida and her husband Anthony, Jessica Dudzenski and her husband Nick, Eric Janosko and his wife Kristen, Monica Gartner and her husband Jacob, Jacquelyn Mason and her fiancé Mike Jones, Kristopher Mason, Tia Yurcich, and Jade and Hanna Fletcher; and four great-grandchildren, Shelby Yurcich, Antonio Hnida, Zachary Dudzenski and Connor Gartner.

Besides her husband, Flo was preceded in death by her parents; an infant daughter, Teresa; a daughter, Antoinette “Toni” Egelsky; eight brothers, Frank, Ted, Leo, Mack, Edward, Alec, Henry and Adam Styborski; and many loving in-laws.
