IIt has been a lot of years since we saw Sylvia,but I remember where her and Roy lived and her coming to church at First Baptist with Joy & Bill. She was a very pretty lady and I am sure she will be missed.

Sylvia will be missed by many. I am so glad I had the privilege of knowing her and some of her family members.  I visited her not to long ago because I had misplaced the bible verse she had given me shortly after I met her. She happened to have one more left in her little basket and told me to take it. I will miss her smiling face and her ability to have a positive attitude always. I learned quite a bit from her.  My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Our dear sweet Aunt Sylvi

You will be dearly missed by so many. Although I’m sure her baby sister Char was waiting right near the gates of Heaven. May God watch over all of your loved ones and provide them with comfort until you meet again. I’m sending lots of hugs, prayers and love your way!
