Bill and Sylvia lived most of their married life in Brenham, where they raised their three children. Sylvia worked at St. Jude Hospital in Brenham in hospital administration, but primarily devoted her life to being a great mother and wife.

Although we are sad to lose our mother, our sadness is wrapped in joy, because we have no doubt that she has been reunited with her husband and joined God in his kingdom.
