Sylvia Elizabeth Morton

May 31, 1959January 8, 2021

On January 8, 2021 Sylvia Elizabeth Ballesteros Morton, our Mommy, grandma, great-grandma, wife and friend went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Sylvia was born and raised in San Bernardino where she fell in love with the love of her life Carlos, Sr. at 12 years old. They married just a few years later. The two began to raised their family in San Bernardino prior to moving to Riverside 25 years ago. Sylvia was dedicated to her very large and constantly growing family.

Sylvia immediately followed her loving son Carlos, Jr. to their beautiful journey into Heaven. Sylvia is survived by her husband, Carlos, Sr., son, Donnie (Rocio), daughters Yolie, Marlene, Darlene (Jeff), daughter-in-law, Lydia, grandchildren, Donnie,Jr., Tony, Jazmin, Dario, Beto, Carlos III, Gabriel, Dorian, Fernando, Sammy, Aaliyah and seven great-grandchildren. In addition to a host of family and friends.

Sylvia’s husband is a member of Viejitos Car Club established in 1986. They loved to cruise in his ‘51 Chevy Deluxe lowrider custom built by her husband and their son Carlos, Jr.

Sylvia will forever be remembered by her big beautiful smile, deep dimples, her long dark hair. Sylvia loved each day to the fullest and quick to laugh, her laugh will continue to echo down the halls and in our hearts. She loved her family and would speak of her grandbabies to anyone that would listen. The grandbabies are perfect in every way, in her words. Grandma, Gaga, Grammy would do anything for her babies.

Sylvia was a proud Native American, from the Cahuilla Tribe, who loved to learn and share her culture.

Sylvia was a highly creative woman, always hand making gifts for others, no task was too big. She took her love of culture and creativity a step further and began instructing classes for Soboba Tribal Tanf, Morongo Tribal Tanf and surrounding Southern California Indian Reservations. Sylvia was very dedicated to her job at Riverside Community Hospital where she worked in the Emergency Department until she contracted and lost her life to COVID19.

The Morton Family would like to express their gratitude for all the assistance, prayers and memories shared by all. God Bless

She gave so much and demanded so little.

Sylvia I am still in shock and have been at a loss for words since I spoke to Yolie. I can honestly say you are someone that came into my life and made a huge impact. You are the sweetest, most giving, and one of the strongest women I have ever met. You never let anything stop you. You were always so willing to help and would give me the shirt off your back had I needed it or asked for it without hesitating. The last time we saw each other felt like we hadn't missed a day. My only regret is not keeping in touch more.

Morton family, I am so so sorry for your losses. I know there is nothing I can say to make you feel better during this time. But maybe just a little comfort knowing how many lives Sylvia impacted for the good. Please know that I am praying for your family.

My girl! She's gone but not forgotten. Sylvia had a heart of gold. She would give you the shirt off her back. She could never sit down always busy, she would make you laugh with a quirky saying. She was beautiful inside and out she will be missed.
Love you girl
