Sylvia was a teacher, careers advisor, school inspector, music and arts lover, animal lover (most especially of cats), author, poet, sailor and mother. Always an inspirational individual who believed in getting on with things, helping others and giving back to society. She fought a truly heroic battle against Parkinson's Disease for the last 17 or so years of her life and kept living life to the fullest right up to the end. She passed away painlessly, calmly and surrounded by love. She will be missed and not forgotten.
