    Great lady-Great friend. She was so loved and will be missed by so many. It was always nice to visit with her and hear her stories. She had a ton of them and was so able to make them all very interesting with her great sense of humor!

    Sylvia was a true friend and will surely be missed by all….especially by her CUNA School and CCUE Classmates. I am so disappointed I cannot attend her memorial service due to a business conflict. My heart goes out to Slyvia’s family for the loss of a very special mother and person.

    Sorry I could not make it to the service Saturday. MaryShawn said it was a very nice service. Sylvia was always very nice to me the few times I had the pleasure of being around her and welcomed me into the family.She will be missed. Hold your head up during this time of sadness because I can assure you she is having the best time of her life!
