She was born on Dec. 15, 1954, in Sterling to Carl and Ann Etl. She grew up in the St. Peter's area and graduated from Fleming High School in 1973. Many knew her for her clothing store, Classy Casuals, which she opened in 1981. Sylvia's hobbies included shopping, reading, gardening, traveling, and being with her family. In 2008, Sylvia was diagnosed with ovarian cancer which led her to her facilitating a cancer support group.

Sylvia is survived by her parents; husband, David; son, Dan Vandenbark-Woodward and spouse Ron; daughter, Carla Bornhoft and spouse Jerry; and brothers, Jim and Dave Etl. Her greatest joy in life were her three grandchildren, Will and Ashley Bornhoft, and Torbett Vandenbark-Woodward.

The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude to the compassionate staff of the Medical Center of the Rockies during her final days, and to all the people that loved and supported her throughout her journey.
