  1. Phillis,

    I am very sorry to hear about Sylvia’s passing. The couple times I met her I thought she was a lovely woman: funny, good natured, and kind. She must have been an excellent mother to have raised such a strong and caring woman as her daughter. I hope your mom has found peace.

    My thoughts are with you.

    Much love,

    Kyla

    I met Sylvia (Mom) many years ago when I worked at Dr.E.P.Scarlett High School. I was so very sad to read her obituary in the newspaper today. I wanted to let you (her family) know how very much she was thought of. “Mom” was a very nice Lady, and she served so many wonderful meals to the Students and Staff for so many years. I realize that you would not remember me, but just know I am one of the many, many people who thought so very much of her.
    My condolences go out to all of her family and friends.

    Nana was an amazing woman, and even though it’s been a very long time since I’ve seen her, she was a special woman in my life and she will be missed by all who knew her. I’m sure Papa is glad to have her back with him 🙂

    Love,
    Janeille

    Dear Philis,
    I just wanted to send along my sympathies, on the passing of your Mom. Sometimes when my Mom and I were by her place, by Parkview Village(that’s where my Mom lived) we would pop in and she would be happy to see us!
    Take care!

    Phillis, Patty, Linda, Tommy and Bobby(that’s how remember you)
    I am very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I often think of having tea and toast at your house before school in Victoria. I loved the donuts your parents would make us in Germany. Your Mom was a very special lady!
    My condolences to you and your families.

    Phillis, Patty, Linda, Tommy and Bobby,

    I am so very sorry to hear of Mom’s passing. I just saw her name in the Metro, so unfortunately just found out about her passing. I wish I could have been there for you, Thursday and Friday.
    You probably don’t remember me, I worked in the Cafeteria at E.P. Scarlett for Mom for my High School years. She was an amazing woman, and was so good to all of us that worked in the Cafeteria, a true MOM at heart.
    I will always remember her laugh and the morning after my Grad (1978), we were to serve Breakfast to my Grad class. Well Breakfast was served but, all I could do was throw up in a bucket (in the back room) with Mom holding my head.
    Mom, she was always Mom to me, even when I would run into her on occasion at Walmart, she was Mom, and she would call me Marty.
    She was so often in my thoughts and prayers, through the years, and now it is too late to say Good-Bye, but she is home with Luke now (he was a great guy too I worked with Luke at Willow Park Golf Course). Both wonderful people and so loving and caring to all that crossed their paths.
    My Deepest Sympathy goes out to all of you and your families. Know that she meant so much to so many. She was a big part of my (and my brother Mike) life at Scarlett and beyond. She was truy Loved.
    May the Lord be with you all and give you Strength, for the road ahead.
    May your Loving Memories give you Comfort, until you (and we all) are together again in the Lord’s house.
    Love to you all, Marta (Marty)
