Sylvia was truly blessed with many dear friends. When she loved and cared about you it was totally. Too many friends to name but Gloria Yarbrough, Bilinda Baker and Linda Nicolai, were there in every way. Sylvia was born in Oklahoma City on July 12, 1936 to Melvin Lee Vicars, Sr. and Betty Allen Brewer Vicars. She graduated from Central High School in 1954. Sylvia worked at Gold Spot Dairy and retired from Seagate after 30 years. She used to tease that she just lived for the grandchildren, but the truth was she did. They were so loved and cherished by Honey! She was the most giving to anyone she knew or didn’t know. She would intentionally keep dollar bills in her purse to give to the needy. Honey would say, “They could be an angel in disguise.” Honey loved to plant flowers, read the newspaper and do the crossword puzzle every day. She loved her pets that kept her company. If you couldn’t keep your pet, everyone knew that Honey would say, “bring it over.” She was a good sport when it came to anything with her grandkids attending events, holidays and vacation. She was very patriotic and loved every person in a uniform. Her favorite music was “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and would blast The Beach Boys music in her car. Honey, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend will be greatly missed and celebrated for a long life well lived. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Pets and People of Yukon or the American Cancer Society.

Honey's daughter, Vicki and I were 4 yrs. old and became neighbors. We have stayed in touch and been friends for 58 yrs. God brings special people into our lived for many different reasons. God Blessed all of us with Honey. She has been a mentor and her house was always a Safe Haven. She was always available and ready to help. We could not have survived our daughter's death had Honey, Rick and Vicki not helped us very much with Julie and Alyssa. Honey was like a grandmother to Alyssa. They both enjoyed their time together. Honey loved many people with all her heart and soul. We had many conversations about death and what Heaven would be like. I know with all my heart and soul that Honey is now at peace in her Heavenly Home. Heaven is real; this I know for sure. Honey was a wonderful prayer warrior and I will miss that very much. Sure her prayers have saved my life and helped many others. As Honey grew older, I always called to check on her even though I knew Vicki was taking care of all her needs. Family isn't always blood. It is the people in your life who want you in theirs; the one who accepts you for who you are. Many fond memories of the time spent with Honey and family over the 58 years would take days to write down. Can't find the right words to express the love, respect and admiration we had for Honey!
