Sylvia worked for the Community Council of Idaho for over 15 years doing what she loved best, being a cook.
Sylvia loved playing loteria and paco with friends and family. She was well known for her kindhearted spirit. She was always making sure everyone was well fed. She always had fresh tortillas and refried beans for her taco beans and who can forget her famous pork chops con chile.

Family was everything to mom. “Mi Gran Señora” you will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
