To George and Family….very sorry to hear about Sylvia’s passing. She was my grade 3 teacher 40 years ago. It was always a pleasure to see Sylvia and to have a little chat, in the last years we loved to talk about genealogy and how she was trying to so hard to find a long lost relative that I don’t think she ever located. I will miss those talks and I will miss her as will many people in the community. My deepest sympathy to all of you at this sad time.

My family has always lived in the home across the street from the Dagley “homestead”. Dad always had a story or two about something he did with one of the “kids” when they were growing up. Sylvia taught in the Milton School when the girls were students there, and we all thought she was a kind and caring teacher, and a genuine, nice person.. We were saddened to read of her death. Our prayers and sympathy to all her family.
