I remember being proud of the fact that I had an Aunt living in Canada and enjoyed the many "foreign gifts" she sent which were among my favorite. May God’s peace be with all family and friends who mourn the passing of Aunty Sybil.

I appreciated her generosity. As youngsters she would send us "barrels". Also she never missed the opportunity to send wedding gifts and also welcomed the birth of babies with gifts.
As an adult, on her visits home, she asked me to take her to visit friends and relatives. I especially remember the outing to find aunt Adina in Sousconosco. As we mourn her passing, she is fondly remembered.

One of my most joyful memories of Aunty Sybil dates back to the couple times she visited and spent time with us. I remember the stories about work and travelling to work. The stories usually included some difficult situation to be resolved, often ending in a joke! Then there were the economics lessons- how not to spend on clothes. It was indeed a blessing to have had you as Aunty Sybil. Rest in Peace Aunty. Until...

Aunty Sybil provided images of a far away land and they always instilled hope that one day I would experience Canada. She was as generous with her gifts as she was with her invitations to visit. I always looked forward to all the special items of clothing sent for us as children. She further embraced our children and found any traveling friends to send something back home for them. That was her way.
I remember her 'no nonsense / speak your mind' persona.
May all that she valued continue to speak to us as family. We celebrate her long and fruitful life.

I especially remember the trip to Canada in 2011 with Dad to visit Aunty Sybil and how excited he was to go and how happy she was to see him. The conversations went on and on for hours as by then the memory was not as sharp as it used to be but they were just happy to see each other again and as it turned out for the last time.

It is with deep sadness that we learnt of the passing of our dear sister, mother of Lynnet, sister in law and great aunt, in Montreal Miss Syvil Lambkin who passed away recently. We remain reminiscent of her tremendous contribution to the family of which she was the first born and will forever remember her outstanding contribution to her children and to the rest of the family/ her brothers and sisters and pray that the lord confers in her deep blessings and he receives her in her place beyond
