Born September 27, 1948 in Calgary. Sylvia passed away November 3, 2013 at the age of 65 years. I would like to thank the many people of Drumheller who loved and cared about my Auntie Sylvia.  A special thank you to Cheryl Rowan, Doneal Kasie, Isabella,The Salvation Army, Kristina Lauriden, the staff at 7-11 and Sylvia’s Handi bus driver. Sylvia leaves her precious little dog Angel in the loving care of Doneal. In the spring, Sylvia will be placed with her beloved sister Ethel whom she mourned for 39 years.
