She was very well known for her hospitality, good cooking (chicken and rice), joy and laughter, but most of all, her love for God. Sister Sylvia was a faithful member of Madera New Life Apostolic Church. She was baptized at the of age 19 and served God until the day He called her home. Cousin Sylvia shared many childhood memories of growing up with her family and friends over the years always saying those were the good old days. She loved yard sales, thrifting and shopping at Ross. Sylvia was the best babysitter to many family and friends. She was loved by many people of all ages. She was a joy to be around and had a great way of making everyone feel very special. Sylvia will be deeply missed, but encouraged everyone to continue to seek God, so that one day we may all be joined together again in heaven for eternity.
