Sylvia was blessed to see the births of three cherished great-grandchildren, Maverick and Audrey Spyros and Christian Angst.

Sylvia also leaves behind her faithful and attentive sister Joan Monico, as well as several nieces and nephews. Throughout her life, Sylvia was blessed in so many ways, but nothing gratified her more than her family.
