Matthew and family,, Keith, and the Wolfe Family
I am sorry to hear of Sylvia’s passing. It was a shock to me and others. In the past I had spent many times with Sylvia, with a group of friends who would get together to do crafts, play cards, dress up in costumes on occasion and of course enjoy great food treats. I remember those times with affection. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Condolence from Daphne Ackermann on September 18th, 2019 7:11 pm

To all of Sylvia’s family and friends,
Please accept my sincere sympathy on your loss. We have all lost a person who was special to us. Sylvia and I were friends for over thirty years. We shared adventures and laughs going to trade shows, doing a craft show on the former Able Cable TV station. She did the crafts and I did the fumbling. These last couple of years, we have shared our thoughts on living and dying. I was not able to persuade her to have a funeral or memorial service. But then, she was not able to persuade me to join Facebook. I will always be grateful for her help when I broke my wrist.
Matthew, you were an amazing son and your mother loved you dearly.
Whenever I look at the murals on the waterfront, I will remember Sylvia.

Condolence from Bob and Lorraine Quinn on September 21st, 2019 1:03 am

Lorraine and I extend our sincere condolences. So very sorry.

Matthew, I am sorry to see you have lost your mother, Sylvia. I remember her dearly along with Christine Tupper and our efforts with the Milton Heritage Society. We had quite a time together. You were included in our efforts with the Blacksmith Shop. My sincere condolences to you and the rest of your family.

Condolence from Tracy Saunders on September 27th, 2019 3:29 am

Matthew and Rhonda, my sincere condolences to you and your family. It was my privilege to know Sylvia, she was always so full of life and inquisitive, so interested in our farm, the animals and the trials of farm life, We had many interesting conversations about various forms of crafting, she was so talented, always showing me what she was making, always several projects on the go at the same time. There were many times that I would deliver late in the evening to her and she would send me home with supper which she had prepared and packed up ready for me. Rest in peace Sylvia, I shall miss you so.

Condolence from Mike &Sandra Roy on October 7th, 2019 11:23 am

Condolence from Margaret Phillips on October 7th, 2019 4:54 pm

My sincere condolences to all of Sylvia’s family. Although her passing is very sad, at least now she is free of pain and at peace. We only met about once a year on my visits to Nova Scotia but Sylvia never changed and one could guarantee a lively discussion with her and evidence of her great talent in crafts. My last visit in September was unfortunately just a little too late to see her but hopefully she received my card sent in August. Rest in Peace my friend.

Condolence from Jean DesRosiers on November 8th, 2019 3:08 pm

My condolences to Sylvia’s family. Just heard of her passing. We go way back to the Bowater days. Rest in Peace Sylvia.
