Obituary for Valerie C. Bysczynski
Valerie C. Bysczynski, age 57, of Bridgeport entered into rest on Monday, April 17, 2017, at Yale-New Haven Hospital. She was the devoted wife of 33 ½ years to Kevin Bysczynski. Valerie was born in Bridgeport on July 15, 1959, daughter of the late Valentino A. and Christine M.(McCullough) Angiolette. She grew up in Huntington before moving to Bridgeport.
Valerie enjoyed spending summers with her two best friends, her husband Kevin and her black lab Macy, at their campsite in the quiet corner of Connecticut.
Valerie started in 1977 as a secretary to the housemaster in SHS House III, and then worked as secretary to the Guidance Directors until she moved to Long Hill School five years ago. She was also employed as the head secretary of the VRAE CDP program since 1992. Valerie will be remembered and forever loved by so many members of the Shelton community. She counseled, supported and always advocated for the students at Shelton High School. Students loved to visit “Val’s office”. The last few years brought Val to Long Hill School where she nurtured the younger Shelton generation. Valerie is our “unsung hero.”
She is the beloved sister of Anna-Marie Angiolette Viesto and her husband Frank, Marc C. Angiolette and his wife Michelle, Margaret Kaskie Stevens and her husband Richard, Susan Kaskie and her husband Walter Fountain, and the late James Kaskie and his wife Maureen Chinchak. She also leaves her brother-in-law Skip Bysczynski, sister-in-law Kimberly Valentine and her husband Glenn, uncle George McCullough and his wife Nina McCullough, cherished nieces and nephews, Jessica Leigh Lawrence, Krystal Angiolette, Gianna Angiolette, Robin Arnold, Jodi Damato, Rick Stevens, Joey Edmonds, several great nieces and nephews, and cousins Kathleen August, Lynne Breton, Cliff Roberts, and Nancy Roberts. She was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Cesare and Anna Angiolette, her maternal grandparents, James and Christine McCullough, her aunts and uncles James and Joan McCullough, Mildred Roberts, and Rose Delvecchio, and her nephew Christopher Esposito.
Friends may greet the family at the Riverview Funeral Home, 390 River Road, Shelton, on Friday from 3 to 7 PM. On Saturday, a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 AM directly at St. Lawrence Church, 505 Shelton Ave, Shelton. Burial will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Trumbull.
Her family extends their most sincere gratitude to the Yale-New Haven Neuro team and staff for the care and compassion that they showed to Valerie and her family.
