SYLVIA MARIE CLOUD
~Sylvia Marie Bridgeman Hayes Cloud, our beloved mother, grandmother and friend, joined her soul mate, Wallace Eugene Cloud in heaven on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the age of 76. She was surrounded by her loving grandchildren when she gained her angel wings in Las Vegas, Nev.
~She was the epitome of a true protector and guardian of her family. She put her family first, always worrying about their safety and concern above her own until the very end.
~Sylvia was born on July 14, 1937 in North Carolina. Although she lived in many states, she eventually made Orange County, Calif. her home, where she raised her children and lived for 40 years. She spent her final 15 years in Bullhead City, Ariz., where she enjoyed being close to her cherished family and dear friends. She always enjoyed finding that 'great deal' at any local thrift store (and then talking about her 'finds'), doing puzzles, enjoying her girls night out and above all spending time with and just being with her family, talking and telling stories of the past and present.
~She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Wally Cloud; her mother and father, Rose and Wilbur Bridgeman; her brother, John Bridgeman; and step-son Leroy Cloud.
~Sylvia is survived by her three children and their spouses, Michael and Christine Hayes, Susan and Ken Burns, Richard Hayes; her grandchildren, Michael Hayes and partner Ashley Chewning, David Hayes, Cassandra Hayes, Benjamin Hayes, Trisha Watts and partner Randall Pastores, Steven Hudson, Justin Hayes; great-grandchildren Aidan Hayes, Summer Hayes; three step-children and spouses, Sindee and Larry Lacefield, Thomas and Cathy Cloud, Pam Shaver; another 13 grandchildren; 17 great- grandchildren; as well her step-mother, Margie Bridgeman.LOVE IS DEDICATION OF BODY, SOUL & MIND… SYLVIA & WALLY– TOGETHER FOREVER.
