So sad to hear about Sylvia's passing. Marlyn & I have known you all forever. We both used to babysit you guys on Highland! Your mom had an amazing sense of humour but when she and dad got together; hold onto your sides because they would be splitting. She was one amazing lady!

My sincere sympathy to her family. I knew Bud & Sylvia when I lived in Nobel. I often saw her when I would visit Parry Sound, and we kept in touch by e-mail on the odd occasion. She was a wonderful person.

So sad to read this. I grew up down the street on Highland. Never realized she was your Mom. She was a wonderful, friendly lady. So many former associates are leaving us. She will be remembered.🙏🙏🙏

-Sandra Moffat

I still think fondly of our wonderful 25 year neighbourly friendship every time I look out our back kitchen window at "Sylvia's house".
Amongst other reciprocal help, I could always count on Sylvia to let "Scottie" out into the back yard, if I was delayed at work. And she subsequently gamely agreed to let our newly adopted 2 year old Black Lab "Lucy" out. I can still hear Sylvia's voice recounting Lucy's antics: of Lucy running from Sylvia and cowering under a bed while Sylvia tried to coax her outside. Sylvia patiently persisted and went back to the house several times that evening before she successfully coaxed Lucy outside. Eventually, of course, over the years, Lucy would happily greet Sylvia at the back door!
Sending my condolences to Lianne, Allan, Steven and your families on the loss of your mother. Dorothy Shaver

She will be missed by those who had the privilege of knowing her, especially her family who treasured with all her heart.
