Sylvia was always known to be a loving mother, aunt, and grandmother. She loved camping, fishing, home gardening, canning, and was a great lover of dogs. She was a great mother who would put the needs of others in front of her own. We will miss her amazing dinners, her phone calls, her hugs, her warm energy, and most of all we will miss her.
