Obituary of Sylvia Reed

Sylvia Ann Reed, age 74, was born November 5, 1942 in Corning, NY to Norman W. and Mary Elizabeth (Bovaird) Horton.

 

Daughter of Christ

 

Loving Mother

 

Proud Grandmother

 

Sylvia was surrounded by her loving family on Monday, October 2, 2017 as she took her final breath in the home that she loved.

 

Sylvia will be remembered for her unfailing love she shared for her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed many of life's simple pleasures; sitting on the back porch watching the birds, endless rummage saling, or simply being invited to a gathering or function.

 

She is survived by four children: Wendy (Robert) Saylor of Painted Post, Terri (Richard O.) Holley of Campbell, Leon (Elizabeth) Reed of Painted Post, Lon (Karen) Reed of Corning; companion: Laverne Dickerson of Addison; 17 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; four siblings: Roland Horton, Steven Horton, Joan Vanderbush, and Grace Caslin.

 

She was predeceased by her daughter, Cindy Huffner on January 1st of this year; grandson, David Ross in 2002; her siblings, Norman, Richard, Melvin, and Terry Horton, Beverly Manwaring, Alberta Colegrove, and infant Annette Horton.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be directed to CareFirst.

 

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. She will be laid to rest in Monterey, NY.
