    I believe that I was one of those young girls Sylvia taught to sew almost 60 years ago while she was a 4-H leader! I still love to sew and am thankful for her faithful service to the young people under her care!

    I worked with Sylvia at Lakeview Nursing Home many years ago. My sympathy to the family on their loss. I remember Sylvia as a kind and compassionate woman. It takes a special person to work in a nursing home and she had that ability to help others!
