Sylvia was always helpful and nice to me when we worked together at the Police Dept. I always thought the world of her and have very nice memories of her. May she Rest in Peace

We loved Sylvia as our second mother. We called her and my mom "Thelma and Louise". We shared many great times with her over the years. We will miss her dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Sylvia, for over 40 years you were like a second mother to me and members of our family. Always a true blue friend to my mom, the two of you became the real life “Thelma and Louise”. What a pair! Your presence will be missed. Rest in peace and know you are loved.

She was the best God-Mother I could have chosen, and Woman, Aunt, Mother that was incrediable. She will be missed and be in everyones heart forever especially mine so glad that I have many memories of my Aunt Sylvia always remember that she was my mom's best friend. So now rest in peace and go see everyone that has passed before.. love you .

What a wonderful woman with a gorgeous smile and a heart as big as the sun. She will always be in our hearts. Much love to Mrs. Genna and family.

Anyone who ever met Sylvia (or I should say Mrs. Genna to the kids in the neighborhood) will never forget her. She never failed to make us smile or laugh at something outrageous she would say. Our world will be a sadder place without her. I am so very sorry for your loss. There is no one quite like her.
