Sylvia was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister.

Everyone who knew her was truly blessed. She inspired us all with her warmth, knowledge, compassion and her never-ending optimism. We carry on still hearing her words, "everything happens for a reason" and "time heals all wounds."

Our family would like to extend our appreciation to Dr. M. Iqbal, Dr. Matheny and Dr. Nguyen for their tremendous compassion and care of her over these difficult years.

Services are being handled by Sutton Memorial Funeral Home.
