Sylvia (Nana) graduated from Wilkes Central High School in 1976. She worked for many years at Tyson Foods in Wilkesboro.

To know Nana is to know of her love for jewelry. She always wore pretty bracelets and rings. Nana also loved winning prizes at Bingo and being around others.  When she was with family, she was full of joy, laughter and smiles.  Nana enjoyed collecting teddy bears and found comfort in them. She was a loving caring person and to know her was to love her. Nana will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all who knew her.

Flowers will be accepted.
