Silvia (Sarvabui) Wolford, 47 of Cuyahoga Falls, OH, passed away at home on June 6th after a lengthy illness.

Silvia is survived by her husband, Stanley, her parents, Salvatore and Ruth, her brother Anthony and Sister Johanna and ten nieces and nephews. She was a graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School, held two degrees from Columbus State and recently had graduated from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). She was known for her enthusiasm and a laugh that could fill a room with joy. She worked in many fields over her lifetime, but her true passion was found in Photography. She was a professional artist and photographer that used her God-given talent and abilities to capture images of beauty in nature or show people the beauty inside of themselves. She won several awards for her art in various popular and juried shows and exhibits. Her art most recently was on exhibit in the rehabilitation area of the Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls. Alongside of her husband, she was active in serving Jesus from Bible quizzing, youth and college ministry, helping to start churches, being a missionary, serving on the Bethel Cleveland ministry team and mentoring young women.

Such a long battle that she fought so well. With poise, grace, faith, and hope. Now, my sister-friend is celebrating with Jesus in heaven in the presence of God. There is peace all around her yet we are broken-hearted in her absence.

Silvia, you are loved and missed, and I’m still trying to wrap my brain around a world in which you aren’t an occupant and where I won’t be able to hear your brilliant, open-mouth, full-body laugh. The world was better with you in it, but, oh, what a legacy of love you have left for us. 💔

Stan and family, we love you and we're praying for you as you mourn in the days, months and years to come. We mourn with you.

I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. Sylvia always had a smile on her face and always helped others. She was very thoughtful and kind and loved attending Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. I know the angels welcomed her to heaven and she will be deeply missed. I send my prayers to Stan and the rest of her family. Stan even though we never met, I pray for strength and courage for you and know that we at BSSM and Bethel Church are praying for you. Fondly, Ellen Sullivan

My memory of Silvia is that of a youthful, sweet, funny, caring soul who loved life, familt, friends, Stan the man and God. A very talented photographer who shared her beautiful world through her lens. My heart goes out to her family who will miss her so much but who have been blessed to know this wonderful individual but as they know, was on loan from God. Stay strong! God bless you all.
