Marilyn and Rick Burr

Hi Carol and Ken, We were saddened to hear that Sylvia had passed away. Losing a sibling is hard. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
John and Velma Young

My condolences to the family. I remember Sylvia as a fun loving friend. We both attended King George School and Northern HS. Whether it be roller skating at Rose Gardens or time spent at her home doing different hair styles/makeup ,we always had a blast. Sylvia was always surrounded by many friends. We lost touch for several years but did eventually cross paths once again. She was such a big part of my youth, I was sad to hear of her passing.
Nancy Pullen ( nee Rowzee )
