Closer in age to her two brothers than to her two elegant older sisters, she used to say she was a tomboy. Flo earned a degree in Journalism from K-State and worked in advertising for the Potts-Woodbury Advertising Agency and Macy's. She was the "Advertising Woman of the Year" in 1966 by the Advertising Round Table of Kansas City. Prior to her advertising career, she was Continuity Chief and Broadcaster for KCKN Radio. Flo always had an intense interest in the people, places and things around her. She was known as the "Joke Lady" as she tirelessly told jokes to family, friends and strangers alike. She loved to travel, taking many trips to the Caribbean and Europe. She was an animal lover, always having a dog and later, many adopted stray cats. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Olga Cyhel, brothers Stan Cyhel and Dr. Walter Cyhel, sisters Josephine Harn and Rose Lohoefener and longtime partner Bob Pitko. Survivors include nieces Donna Amato and husband Les, Overland Park, Susan Ehlers, Leawood, Sharon Lohoefener, Huntington Beach, Calif., Marlene Jones and husband Bob, St. Louis, Mo., nephew Doug Lohoefener and wife Debbie of Bend, Ore., and several great nieces and nephews.
