Your love for life, great gift to make friends and keep them for years, good humor and easygoing are unforgettable.
    Too bad, you and Ed are not here anymore.

    Aunt Sylvia is a beautiful person inside and out. It was always a special time when she and Uncle Eddie visited. I remember the great stories my mother told about them growing up. Aunt Sylvia was a woman before her time achieving success in the business world and other endeavors. Always bettering herself. She was courageous battling the effects of a stroke. I still keep her moving letter “My Mother Never Taught Me…..”She definitely lived life to be max and her loving spirit will live on with us.

    I remember Sylvia coming to our place in White Lake, to see my mom and her father. She brought warmth and lightness along with her. She even modeled some clothes from mom’s store to help her with advertising!

    I remember her coming to our temporary home in the Netherlands to meet my daughter Anneke. Sylvia was the first of my family to meet her.

    Sylvia embodied strength and determination.

    Rest In Peace, Aunt Syl.

    Aunt Sylvia was my exotic family member. Always accomplishing something new in her life and visiting/living in places I’ve only dreamed of. Aunt Syl always had this cheerful and positive attitude when I was with her. She is loved.

    When I think about my beautiful and charismatic aunt Sylvia the word that comes to mind is “remarkable.” Her love for travel and adventure, her glamour, her GORGEOUS figure, her accomplishments, her humor, her strength will forever inspire me. My mom, sister Rose, adored and revered her. The sisters are all together again. Rest in peace dear aunt Syl.

    I am a friend of Sylvia from Tall Oaks Senior Living. She was a friend and neighbor of mine on the 5th floor. She was a very intelligent, active, and witty woman. I will miss her greatly! May God receive her in His glory.
