Condolence & Memory Journal

I regret that I only became aware of Sylvia's passing this morning, and it is an item I read with great sadness. I knew Sylvia from our days at John Hancock. While I never worked directly in her areas of the company, I knew several colleagues who did, and I know she did much to enrich their careers, and, in turn, their lives. Even though I have not seen her in over 25 years, I can still hear her voice, and see her smiling face. My condolences to her family.

I am so sorry to hear of Sylvia's passing. She and I had many wonderful times together as Alpha Chi Omega sisters at the University of Massachusetts. She was a wonderful woman and friend, always willing to lend a hand. With many miles between us since our graduation, we didn't communicate much but she will never be forgotten.

I knew Sylvia from our time together at Open Table when we both served on the board. Sylvia was kind to me as a newcomer, and her gracious welcoming manner enriched all of our lives. She is fondly remembered.

Sylvia was also a wonderful neighbor to her Jennie Dugan community - often baking or making dog treats and stopping by to visit when walking her beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Sophie. She was a gentle and kind soul and will be greatly missed but fondly remembered by all of us here.

Sylvia was an incredible contributor to Open Table. I will miss her quiet counsel and friendship. She was an amazing team member - she really understood how important it is to show up in life for others. May her spirit live on in those she has inspired to be of service.

My wife Rosalie and I knew Sylvia as co-workers at JH and as the wife of my LHS classmate Dave. Our lives were enriched by that friendship. We only regret that we had so few times together in recent years.
