She was predeceased by her husband, Antoni, in August 2004; her parents, Andrzej and Antonina; brothers Antoni, Jozef, Wicenty, Franciszek and Boleslaw; and a son and daughter in infancy. Sylvia will be lovingly remembered by her son and daughter-in- law, Richard and Anna; grandchildren, Lilia of Regina, Mark of Calgary and Krysta (Jason) Grieve of Saskatoon; and numerous nieces and nephews in Poland. She was born in Kluski, Poland on August 24, 1919. Sylvia married Antoni on February 17, 1939. During WWII, Sylvia joined her husband in Germany where they worked as farm labourers throughout the war. In January 1950, she and her son immigrated to Canada to join Antoni who was working on a farm in the Redvers area. They moved to Regina in June of that year. For a number of years, Sylvia worked at Hotel Saskatchewan. After her retirement, she devoted herself to her family. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and meeting friends at the Cornwall Centre.
