Troy – Constance (Connie) Malone LaPosta, 87, of Burdett Avenue, died Sunday, April 3, 2022 at Van Rensselaer Manor.

Born in Troy, she was the daughter of the late Edward J. Malone and Dorothy Bebernitz Malone.

She was the loving wife of the late John J. LaPosta, Jr., who passed away on December 25, 2002.

A Troy resident for most of her life, Connie graduated from Lansingburgh High School in 1952 and from Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing in 1955. Her nursing career included work at Samaritan Hospital, the infirmary at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Van Rensselaer Manor. A strong believer in her profession and in education, she created the Connie Malone LaPosta RN, ‘55 Nursing Endowed Scholarship at the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing to support the education of future nurses.

After retirement in 1996, Connie enjoyed time in Florida and traveling to Alaska, Italy, and Ireland with her family and friends.

Survivors include daughters Constance LaPosta Donohue (Joseph) of Troy and Anne M. Frank (Thomas) of Rhode Island, one brother, Laurence Malone of Massachusetts, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and friends. Connie was predeceased by her sister, Dorothy Malone Cuerdon and her brother, Edward F. (Ned) Malone.

Heartfelt thanks from our family to the staff of Beechwood at Eddy Memorial, where mom enjoyed independent living for the past seven years, and to the nurses and caregivers of St. Peter’s Hospital, Van Rensselaer Manor and the Community Hospice for their compassionate care in recent weeks.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 9, in St. Joseph’s Church, 416 Third Street, Troy, NY, followed by burial at Oakwood Cemetery.  Calling hours will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, April 8 at the McLoughlin and Mason Funeral Home, 109th St. and Third Avenue, Lansingburgh.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York (www.regionalfoodbank.net) would be appreciated. For directions and guest book, please visit online at McLoughlin & Mason Funeral Home (mcloughlinmason.com)

I was a classmate of Connie's in the 50's & when we were mothers of toddlers we had monthly playdates. Life itself ended that. In our retirement we again had monthly luncheon dates with other classmates. COVID ended that. The last two yrs. we have kept in touch by phone. Rest in Peace Connie, I will miss you.

Connie was my supervisor at Van Rensselaer Manor, she was kind and passionate to her patients and staff. Always had time to stop and talk and enjoy a cup of coffee. She was missed dearly after her retirement.

I will miss Connie very much. I have lived in CT for many years and Connie, and I would phone chat fairly frequently and she kept me UTD on things happening at Samaritan and with other classmates. At our lunches, She and my husband would enjoy each other's company as much as Connie and I did. We both send our condolences to the family and will miss her as we are sure you will. She was a neat lady.
