Natalie Fe­doriw Cybriwsky, age 96, beloved wife of the late Ge­orge Cybriwsky, passed away peace­fully on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 3, 2018 in Wood­bridge, CT. She was born on May 6, 1922 in Bo­ryslav, Ukraine, one of six chil­dren of Martin and Kataryna Ter­tij Fe­doriw. With her fa­ther de­ceased by 1939, Natalie es­caped the Soviet in­va­sion of Ukraine in 1944 to end up in Ger­many where she used her lan­guage skills to gain em­ploy­ment in a Ber­lin ra­dio sta­tion. Her em­ployer then helped her se­cure pa­pers to es­cape to Badgestein in Aus­tria, where she spent 4 and half happy years, meet­ing her fu­ture hus­band in a dis­place­ment camp. She em­i­grated to the United States in 1950, get­ting mar­ried and liv­ing in Spring­field, MA where her daugh­ter Oresta was born.

Mrs. Cybriwsky worked as a multi-lin­gual cat­a­loguer for the Yale Ster­ling Li­brary for over thirty five years un­til her re­tire­ment in 1996. Natalie was very proud of her Ukrainian her­itage yet was also flu­ent in Pol­ish and Ger­man, adding to her love of opera and clas­si­cal mu­sic con­certs. She was an ex­cel­lent seam­stress, an avid reader, and en­joyed trav­el­ing. A lov­ing wife, mother and grand­mother, she will be greatly missed. Sur­vivors in­clude her daugh­ter Oresta Cybriwsky of Erd­ing, Ger­many and her sons Alexan­der and Daniel Müller, her son Nestor Cybriwsky and his wife Anne of Man­has­set, NY, and their chil­dren Wil­liam, Natalie and Peter, and her daugh­ter and lov­ing care­giver Nina Iovino Baker and her chil­dren Christo­pher and Kata­rina Rose Iovino, and hus­band Lane Baker. In ad­di­tion she was very close to her niece Marta Evans and her hus­band Ian of Durham, Eng­land, as well as sev­eral ex­tended fam­ily mem­bers. She was pre­de­ceased by her son in law, Vin­cent Iovino.
