Even as a child I could tell "Mrs. Boyko" loved being a mom. I spent many hours at their house playing with her daughter Sylvia. One of my clearest memories was of a day Sylvia and I had been playing outside in the snow. When we came in young Sylvia had freezing cold hands. I still have a clear image of her mother cupping her frozen little fingers in her hands and blowing on them gently to warm them up, and all the while cooing reassuringly to her. I think Sylvia and I were of about 7 years old, but I remember standing there thinking what a good mom she had. :)

Dear Sylvia and family,
We pray that God will comfort you only as He can. Our hearts go out to you.. This is a difficult time to say good-bye to a parent. Our prayer: "Lord, let Heaven so fill their hearts, that Your Peace may be tangibly felt in each loved one. Help them through this time. Lead and guide them in decisions they make.
In Jesus' Name",
Sharon & William Arndt
(Sharon is a co-worker with Sylvia at Crossroads Christian Communications)

Sylvia was a generous and caring woman who spent her time and energy making the world a better place for all. She was cheerful, positive and outgoing. Sylvia was admired by all who knew her, for the courageous way in which she handled her unfortunate growing physical limitations in later years.
Rest in peace Sylvia. You have earned your reward.

Sylvia was always a caring woman, who involved herself in activities to make a positive difference in the lives of others. She handled her physical limitations with grace, and always had a smile. Admired by many, Sylvia will be remembered as the courageous woman she was.
